So my husband got it in his head that our family needed to take a pilgrimage together. And he's not one to do anything half way thus pocket-sized, laminated itineraries for everyone in the family:
As much as I appreciated my handy-dandy vacation reference, it made me so nervous because, as most people know from experience, nothing ever goes the way you plan it. And this fact didn't make me nervous for me, but for my slightly OCD husband who put countless hours into planning this vacation.
However, for whatever reason, that son-of-a-gun pulled it off! It so happens that this trip was a dream, complete with the discovery of the perfect milkshake and a new friend who blessed our family in lots of ways.
