  • My family and I decided to go to Colorado for spring break this year. Why Colorado? Beats me, but it sure was fun! When I first found out about it, I was super excited because I had only ever been in Minnesota or New York, so needless to say Colorado was something new! But shortly after finding...

  • During the spring of 2008, my mother and I decided that we would move from Seattle, WA to Boston, MA. It was an out of the blue decision because we wanted a change.
