Who are The New Griswolds?

The New Griswolds came into being on August 9, 2004. Some people would call this our wedding anniversary, but we have always referred to it as our family birthday. We dubbed ourselves The New Griswolds because of my husband’s quest to have the best Christmas decorations in the neighborhood, our love of travel, and the fact that we usually have a mis-adventure or two on each trip we take.

We decided early on that travel would always be a high priority. Our family travels started with a destination wedding in St. Thomas, USVI. Our first misadventure as The New Griswolds happened even before we were officially a family. When we planned our wedding day and time, we forgot to consider high tide. The beach we planned to be married on nearly disappeared. Our toes were in the water, but it was a beautiful ceremony.


Now we have moved our family across the globe. We are excited about the many adventures (and mis-adventures) ahead. Stay tuned…
