I grew up in Massachusetts. Recently my husband and I took a trip back east. First, I visited my hometown, Lexington. I was fortunate to catch the end of a Fife and Drum parade with corps from all over New England. It immediately brought back memories from when I was growing up and marched in the Patriot's Day Parade as a Blue Bird. Next we went to Ogunquit, Maine, and spent a few beautiful days walking on the beach, listening to the water, and just relaxing.
