Meagan Shamy

Welcome to Mommy Travels a family travel blog with an occasional book review, craft, military topic or recipe thrown in.

My 3 kids

I’m Meagan, a busy mom to three kids, ages 15, 12, and 9. My email is MommyTravels at aol.com.

You can find me on twitter @MeaganShamy and on facebook.

I am originally from Texas,  love tex-mex food, and a proud Texas Tech Red Raider. I love God. I enjoy gardening, even though I’m not very good at it. I love to read and enjoy a glass of wine while I sit in the hammock I weaved in Honduras.  I enjoy writing and hanging out with my family and my girlfriends. Currently I can be found near Portland, Oregon!

It has been my experience as an Air Force military wife being dragged moving all over the country: Texas, Mississippi, Oregon 3x, Idaho, Florida, Nevada, Alabama, Georgia, and Honduras) that has given me a hatred for moving love for travel.  Each time we moved I wanted to enjoy and explore the areas around us.  As our family grew our travel had to become more kid friendly. As, time went on I became a single mom, but that hasn’t stopped us from traveling the world. That’s how this  family travel blog came to be and I hope you enjoy it.


I can also be found writing regularly as the Military TravelingMom at www.TravelingMom.com, as the Portland area expert at www.10best.com.
