For years, I dreamed of staying at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas on my birthday.
“I hope you’re planning on visiting your mother before you go disappear to Europe for however many months.”
When I was a young girl imagining adulthood, I never imagined being 60.
This is the most expensive holiday of my life.
I wanted to surprise my parents, who didn’t know I was coming.
Now they’re at risk of canceling more than 15,000 December flights.
We were excited to trade long airport lines and expensive cross-country flights for leisurely beach strolls and cheap tropical drinks.
