Be careful what you wish for...it might be a lot more than anticipated!

Seems strange to say that so far I have had the vacation of my dreams. Here I am, 46 years old and counting, and I have never in my life been off the East Coast of the United States. If it had not been for my husband’s transfer to Pennsylvania back in…
