HAPPY. I just got approved for an American Express credit card connected to the Hilton Honors rewards program. When you don't have a long credit history in the US it can be hard to build credit, so this definitely helps. And I get 60,000 Hilton Honors points to use at any Hilton property. Win-win.

It's so important to give these experiences to our children when we travel.
I share more in today's post. Have you experienced any of the US Civil Rights Trail?
