If you’re a subscriber to my site, you’ve probably noticed that I’ve really slowed down in new posts in the last few months. Part of that is by design: as a mom with school-aged kids, I prefer to do most of our travel in the summer and most of my writing during the school year. But I’ve got a few more excuses.
