The One Where My Car Got Towed (AKA Vacation Memories)

We just returned from a fabulous vacation in Gloucester, Massachusetts. This included plenty of relaxed family time at the ocean. And, on the ocean!

Yes, yes, I know. I know it’s best to teach by example. But, I’m 33 years old and full of bad habits my girls shouldn’t imitate. Like, my deep love for Reese’s peanut butter shapes. Or, my total addiction to Sunkist’s orange soda. My nightly bubble bath? I’d gladly teach them that one, if only […]
