I’m Katie. I write La Jolla Mom.
I started La Jolla Mom as a place to write about lifestyle and motherhood topics. It ballooned into a travel business after I started to include tips from our lives as ex-pats in Hong Kong and London — we often flew with a baby and lived in a luxury hotel. Until then, I didn’t realize that people do like to read travelogues which are really up my alley.
Next, readers started to ask for San Diego travel advice. (We live in La Jolla, a seaside community in San Diego.) The site evolved into a top San Diego family travel resource that also focuses on theme parks. We have four of the world’s best and are close to others in California.
We still travel a lot and stay in nice hotels. I love hotels and have a keen eye for what a stay should be like.
So that’s why you’ll mostly find four main topics woven throughout the site: San Diego vacations, theme parks, luxury hotel reviews, and recaps of our personal travels worldwide — with a handful of lifestyle tips sprinkled in.
