20 minutes: How long it takes to drive from my house to the border of Washington, DC...7: Number of days I spent on my staycation.

My first and last loves were both named Neil. And this weekend I got to see my first one again - Neil Diamond. To understand why he's my first love, I'd have to take you back when I was 5-years-old traveling across the country for a summer in a van.
