Kathy McKeon-Lawrence recently returned home to Michigan after more than a decade of traveling and teaching abroad. She is a new mother to one lovely baby daughter, wife to one hunky South African and friend to all. Except cats. She does not particularly like cats. Kathy is happy to be in the same time zone as her family once again, and is enjoying exploring all that Western Michigan offers. She has a travel blog, beyonddisneytraveltips.com, and does freelance copywriting when she’s not playing outside with her family.
