I just found your delightful blog. As mom to 25 yo son and 23 yo daughter, both of whom live in far off states, I have really enjoyed the posts I've read. We are thinking of splurging for a fun family trip for 6 (including their significant others) and I enjoyed your travel with grown children posts. Thank you! I'll be back!


thanks for the pat on the back--so glad you've enjoyed the posts. And what a great way to splurge--a trip with your grown children and their S.O.s. Enjoy.
