Welcome to From YOW with Love!


I’m Courtney, my husband is Jeff and our daughter is Millie. So nice to meet you!

We are a Canadian family living in the lovely, but often underestimated, capital city of Ottawa. We both work full time but have made travel and exploration a priority for our little family.

If you are looking for perfectly edited photos and advice on full-time travel this might not be the place for you. What you will find are real life stories about our family adventures near and far as we learn to live and travel with our one year old daughter.
