I’ve been an event planner for a long time. For the majority of that time I’ve worked for large mothership corporations that have sent me traveling all over the country (and beyond). Now that my kids are older, they always ask if I’ve seen the sites of whatever state (mental/physical, take your pick) I just got back from.
Kids: “*Mommy, did you go to the Hollywood Sign?”
Kids: “Mommy, did you go to the Alamo? Ride a trolley?”
Me: “umm no and no”
So I started taking pictures of the parts of the city I do get to see – from my room
Crack-O-Dawn, Santa Monica, CA
(this is as close as I got to the beach)
Crack-O-Dawn, Chicago, IL
(this is as close as I got to Lake Michigan)
You get the point.
*PLEAE NOTE: My kids want you to know that they don’t call me Mommy anymore…but since it’s my blog…Mommy Mommy Mommy!!
