What I’m Packing For Europe

July 6th, 2023 by

Sometimes, life just throws a lot your way. This week we had a family birthday, Independence Day (I hosted), a root canal, and other assorted challenges and hiccups, but the most significant is the fact that we would LIKE to go to Europe next week and my older daughter’s passport has yet to arrive.
