My mom aka Vanita would probably kill me if she knew I was doing this but I'll risk it for her. So, Vanita is turning 60 in a few weeks and the queen of helping everyone with parties, baby showers, weddings and even funerals has opted out of a birthday party for herself. She told me she just wants to travel for her 60th birthday. She has a few trips planned this year, her 1st one being a Girl's Trip with my God Mom to Costa Rica for a week. So this got me to thinking and realized my mom has never had a Girl's Trip in or out of the county. Her 1st time out of the county was chaperoning 25 teenagers on my Senior Trip to the Bahamas 21 years ago. Since then she has traveled but it was always for someone else; family weddings, family vacations but never a relaxing trip just for her. If you know Vanita you know she is a doer, and a giver that is always ready to help selflessly. So in lieu of an "Awesome Birthday party" I was planning, lets gift her with the gift of travel for her birthday.
