    July — Around here we travel! I have an annual work conference, and we try to go away to celebrate our wedding anniversary, in addition to picking my son up from whichever college he’s at (as part of the Duke TIP Summer Studies program). A highlight this July was driving the San Luis Pass Road to Galveston.

    What a great post! My July was amazing – 4 weeks in Europe with just my 12 year old son and me! Hubby couldn’t get any time off work so we missed him but it was great to have that special time with my son
