The Jersey Shore June 19, 2021


This morning Ernie said “The difference between men and women is that men think things and keep their thoughts to themselves, women tell you every thought they are thinking while they are thinking them.” I said “Of course!

After 20 years of dreaming, waiting, and wondering if we would ever be able to take an entire summer and hit the open road together, we decided that “someday” was now and if it was ever going to happen, we had to take the leap of faith and really do it. The following posts document the life changing journey that we all took together this summer….
