Remember my Summer Bucket List? I thought I'd check in and let you know how its going. 1.

Last Saturday, Stinky and I had the pleasure of visiting Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge in Disney's Hollywood Studios on opening weekend. It was the most epic Mommy/Son date ever!!!

The DH said it best, "How else would you have known you were in London if it didn't rain?" Up to this point, we'd had great travel weather… Continue reading Europe 2017 – London
We spent the first half of Day Seven in Paris. Top of our list was the Musée d'Orsay. The museum was a former railway station, inaugurated for the 1900 World Fair. It housed a luxurious hotel and grand reception room. Many of its original features have been maintained. In my opinion, the building itself rivals… Continue reading Europe 2017 – Paris and London
