When we decided to journey South for Spring Break, Brooke had no idea what she was in for. She has been to Florida many times–Disney, Ft. Lauderdale, Naples, Miami, all by air. Traveling by car, however, was a life-changing experience for this fourteen year old. You certainly see a lot more than drifting clouds from an airplane window seat. Talk about teachable moments! Yes, the teacher in me came out during this so called care-free Mother-Daughter road trip.
The rush as the skyline comes into view as you drive over the George Washington Bridge…The incessant din of honking taxis…the nostalgic aroma of roasted chestnuts…the crowds…the lights…there is nothing in the world like the energy of New York City during the holiday season!
