My mom worked at least two jobs for as long as I can remember during my growing up years. It was difficult as a single woman raising three kids on […]
Kobe and I took Mo coffee at work and got an impromptu tour of the area he was training in. Kobe loved getting to see his dad in action. On the way back to the hotel we picked up donuts from Peace, Love and Lots of Donuts. The owner Isabelle was a delight to talk to, we spent 20 minutes […]
We stayed at the Residence Inn by Marriott because they are pet friendly. We spent most of our trip being lazy in the hotel. It was my favorite. Days of rest and togetherness, it’s all I needed.
