My Mom is cooler than your Mom

I don’t mean to start a Mom war here…but it’s true ;)

My Mom always sent care packages to me when I was living away from home. Even when I finally finished grad school and had a career-job, I still got random cool packages to open. Our Bon Voyage was no exception. My Mom and Dad came to Port Townsend for the Wauquiez Rendezvous and that was our Bon Voyage party together. She gave us a care package full of gifts to open on various voyaging occasions.


After both sets of guests, we opened two gifts: two instant cappuccinos labeled “when you need a hot cup of coffee” and a silicone pasta strainer that collapses and fits perfectly in our sink labeled “when you are going to make pasta”. I’m looking forward to “preparing for rough seas”.

Thanks Mom! Livia
