Follow Me On My Latest Adventure

Sharing is caring!

If it excites you and scares you at the same time, it probably means you should do it.

So I am not going to lie friends. The past 7 years or so of this blogging journey has been filled with lots of ups and downs. There’s been tears, cheers, friendships formed, connections made, stories shared and opportunities I never imagined for my family and I.

When I first created my blog I thought it would be cool to write under Clarissa Explains It All. I mean that’s my name and I like to talk about all the things. What I didn’t realize and never could have imagined is that my silly little blog could become a business.

Sometimes I honestly can’t believe it myself but over the last couple of years that is exactly what it has become. My husband and friends often tell me I should be more proud of that. I’m slowly learning that piece…

Much like people grow, change and evolve so has the writing, photography and content that I produce and I felt it was time for my website to reflect that.

Are you ready to take a new and improved journey with me? 

Then I hope you will follow me on my latest adventure – Passports and Parenting

Are you ready to take a new and improved journey with me? Then I hope you will follow me on my latest adventure Passports and Parenting. 

* Now Clarissa is still here to explain it all, but in a more travel, parenting and sometimes even a little fashion focused way.


  • Travel has been a long time passion of mine and my favorite thing to do is inspire people to explore the world, both near and far. I get excited over sharing places to visit and vacation ideas while encouraging people to be more spontaneous in embracing travel. One of my proudest things as a parent has been to be able to travel and adventure with my kids. They have experienced a lot so far and I have learned so much about them as well as myself simply from viewing the world through their eyes.

Remember when I took my son to Amsterdam? Well, this summer my son will actually head off to Spain, London and France with his Spanish club and I can’t wait for him to share about his travels with you all from a teenage point of view. I will also be continuing my travel tips talk over on IGTV (you can check out my past travel tips videos here)

Please stay tuned because I have so much great travel focused content to bring you (including Disney, International, keeping kids occupied on a plane, carry on luggage, souvenirs, summer vacation ideas and so much more).


  • When I originally started Clarissa Explains It All I was in a completely different stage of parenting. My kids were about 3 and 9 years old. Now I have a teenager (my son will be 15 soon) and my daughter will be 9. We’ve been through a variety of phases and stages, and they all come with their challenges as well as beautiful never-want-to-let-your-kids-go-moments. Currently I am dealing with my daughter’s anxiety while riding the wave of teen angst. I will continue to share our coparenting journey as well as other parenting tips, tricks, real talk stories and more. 

As parents, we are in it together raising the future. We are a tribe of future makers, so let’s support each other.


I hope you will follow me on my latest adventure, because I am excited to keep sharing our world with you!

Hi! This so awesome! I'm a new reader here. I recently came across your blog (the previous one lol) and loved it so much! It really inspired me as I also love traveling with my kids. After blogging for a few years I recently decided to focus more on travel (since I'm pretty much obsessed with it). I didn't rebrand but instead decided to start a second blog (yeah, call me crazy) and test out the travel blogging waters. I'm so excited and inspired by the fact that you have decided to embark on this new journey. I will be following along! My kids are now 4 and 10 and I hope that by the time they reach their teen years I have been able to take them traveling as much as you have with your beautiful family! Loads of luck on your new adventure and thanks for sharing it all with us!!!
