By: Ashley Dowling – That year, a cousin of mine moved to the United States from Holland. We hardly knew each other, and rarely spoke but for some reason she reached out and invited me to come to her Brooklyn apartment in New York to do the “Times Square” thing.

This marked my oldest children reaching their 30th state and my youngest reaching his 18th (he is catching up!).Read More

The entire family was not only in attendance, but we all decided to stay at the same hotel as the wedding! Being with family is one of my favorite things.
