Acadia, Stars, and Crushing Mountains with my Mom and Sister
My mom has never climbed a mountain (to my knowledge) in her whole life. I guess that’s kind of what happens when you’re a military wife raising three kids and uprooting every three years to who knows where. So when I got a text from her a few weeks ago telling me she had her…
