Costco Trip Milestones

Costco use to be a place I would go for a big outing in my day. It was a place I could get an electric scooter and just cruise up and down every aisle. Plus, samples! Can't go wrong there. It was seriously a place I loved to go as a "field trip." I have …

A Meaningful Experience
