I Heart Small Businesses

For a long time, I’ve wanted to write a travel blog. I absolutely love to travel and explore new places. A few years ago, I moved back to the Seattle area and I have thoroughly enjoyed exploring the beautiful surroundings of British Columbia, Washington and Oregon. I am so happy to be back home.

I have always tried to spend my money at the mom and pop shops wherever I happened to be living but it wasn’t until I opened up my small custom t-shirt business, Creativ-T, in April 2016 that I realized just how important my dollars meant to small businesses. Yes, I can buy cheaper things at other places but do I really want and need to?

I’ve decided to combine my two passions, travel and small businesses, and write about the places I encounter when I’m traveling. I can’t think of a better hobby than small business travel writing!

Instead of bashing the big box stores, I want to celebrate the small, family-run, community centered businesses. I want to travel the world and talk to small business owners and their employees. And then I want to write about them. I would love it if everyone (who can) thought long and hard about where they decide to spend their money.

Thanks for taking the time to read my little blog.

See you on the road,
