Patty Holliday is a wife, mother of four, travel agent specializing in Disney and Universal vacations, and lover of candid confession. Find her in Virginia or anywhere frequent flyer miles or her trusty Honda Odyssey take her. That's 34 states and counting! With her teen, two tweens and kindergartener, her world is loud, sassy, hilarious as she balances family, work, travel, and fitness. She’s probably planning where her next racecation can take her.
