Tourist with Tots & Collecting Moments with Christen & Creator Series

Updated: Jun 15, 2020

Welcome to our new series Creator’s Creations!

We are sharing highlights from transformation stories and how we are creating FIT Life Creation and the community. In this feature, we are talking Traveling with Tots with Christen.

Highlights of Story and Creations:

Hi! My name is Chris. I am a law enforcement officer and college professor by vocation. To be honest, it is not just a vocation, but a lifestyle. I am a wife and homemaker by calling. Thank goodness for my husband.

He brings me back to reality, is my voice of reason, and my sounding board. I am a mother to a wonderful boy by the grace of God. My son has changed everything about how I live. He is my greatest challenge, yet also my greatest blessing. And now, I can add travel blogger and micro-influencer as my passion.

I am a member of a law enforcement family. My father is law enforcement, my husband and all of his siblings are law enforcement, and I am in law enforcement. Crazy hours, dinners on the go, holidays, birthdays, and anniversaries missed are our normal. We have seen our brothers killed in the line of duty, the worse of society, and the best of society. We collect memories. Not the good kind, either.

I am guilty of taking life for granted. Aren’t we all? When is the last time you really took the time to appreciate what you have, the people in your life, and the world around you?

Your Brand

In 2007, life changed. I gave birth to a little boy. Life was no longer about me. I started to collect memories–the good kind! His first steps, his first tooth, first day in Kindergarten, first surgery, first stitches–the memories quickly passed. As the stages of my son’s childhood flew, my husband and I realized we were caught up in everyday life and again we were taking our new life as parents for granted as we had done before. Would our son have positive memories of his childhood that would last forever? Childhood is over in a blink of an eye. What will he remember about his childhood? Will he remember all his parents did was chase the American dream of money, power, and success? Or will he remember the time we spent together? We have taken a vow to collect memories. The good kind. Though as parents we are working full time, we have taken the stance that will we enjoy time together as often as we can. We stopped giving physical gifts and instead now give the gift of experiences.
