Last week I was rummaging through a box of old keepsakes and came across a journal I kept while I was living in Paris in 2010.  While I was there, my mom and I took a mother-daughter trip to Morocco, an adventure of memories I still cherish dearly.  We started in Taghazout, a sleepy little fishing town turned surf mecca on the coast about an hour north of …
