I’m a writer living in southwest Missouri with my husband and three children. When I’m not putting miles on my minivan driving my kids to activities, you can find me exploring the region – and the country – discovering people and places that make life interesting. I share my travel experiences on JoplinMOLife (also on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram) and I ponder about life on my new blog ChristineSempetrean, using my maiden name because “Sempetrean” is way more fun to say than “Smith.”
