I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t take vacations as often as I should. Usually, time off work is spent catching up on stuff around the house. In fact, the last real vacation that my husband and I went on was in 2012. Life happens, time slips away. So when the opportunity presented itself in the form of a girls trip, I was ecstatic! A good friend’s birthday was coming up, and she wanted to go to Saint Louis for a long weekend away. From where we live, Saint Louis is just over a six-hour drive, which is very manageable. She did most of the work in finding activities for us to do once we arrived and had everybody chose one thing that they wanted to do while we were there. Since my thing is baking, all I wanted was to find a good bakery. After all, desserts equal happiness.
