Hello Everyone! I'm Emily Kaufman, the Travel Mom, and I've been keeping Southwest Customers updated with fun travel tips each month on southwest.com. As The Travel Mom, I have the good fortune to marry two things that I love - Travel and Being A Mom. With Mother's Day this weekend, I have been thinking about how lucky I am to have the opportunity to celebrate the holiday. My two children are my inspiration for all that I do and I have learned so much from them. My career has given me the amazing chance to see the world with my kids and I truly believe that sharing the experience of travel is one of the best gifts you can give to your children. We have spent time exploring beaches, theme parks, big cities, museums, aquariums and everything in between. Seeing all of it through their eyes has been an incredible gift for me and I treasure the memories that travel has created for my family. Yesterday I was in Orlando and tomorrow I will be in Phoenix appearing on television to share some ideas for families to stretch their travel dollars and create vacation memories for themselves. I sure do love to travel, but when I wake up on Sunday morning for Mother's Day, I must admit that I will be waking in my favorite place - at home, in my bed, with my husand and two kids. Happy Mother's Day to all the other travel moms out there.
