… 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 two-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 recently turned 30, 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.
