FAVORITE VACATION MEMORY Spending the weekend in Now York City with my mom and daughter
WHAT IS YOUR DREAM VACATION? I feel like every vacation is a dream. Whether it’s with my family or just my husband, we enjoy new experiences and make great memories. I’ve loved them all! But, I do hope to take my family on a Disney River Cruise in Europe some day soon.
WHAT IS THE COOLEST TRAVEL PACKAGE YOU’VE EVER BOOKED? I booked two elderly sisters to Scotland. That is their family heritage and it’s been a dream for both of them to visit places they found in old family photos. After a week-long guided tour, they expereinced a week on their own. I helped them cross off a bucket list item!
