I started this blog years ago as a play on words.

Samantha Smiles and Samantha’s Miles.

I love travel.

I love adventuring around the world – whether it’s to far-away places or around the backyard through the eyes of my three-year-old daughter.

I also, at the time of creating this blog, was training for a half and a full marathon. I had planned to document those journeys, but I failed pretty hard at that. 🙂

As I travel through my 30s, I am learning to embrace life and enjoy the journey. Would you join me? Join me as I work to SMILE through the MILES, if you will.
