Been There, Bra-ed That: The Trials Of Finding The Right Bra

I’m the kind of girl who wears a bra all the time.  I haven’t gone completely bra-less since 1993.

Instead, I read travel guides, obsessively open travel emails, and pin picturesque destinations for vacations I have yet to take.

A few months ago, I decided it’s now or never. I checked my savings, picked a general destination, notified my husband, and jumped on the next mind-blowing travel deal that popped up in my inbox. BAM! Two tickets to Tuscany!

A few months later, I am as excited as ever, but have yet to solidify plans. If budget wasn’t a question, here are all the things I would love to do in Tuscany. Keep reading »
