she can, researching and planning excursions for clients. "I was incredibly lucky as a child to accompany my grandparents and mother on dozens of trips," explains Liza. "My experiences have stuck with me, so now when friends, fam- ily, and clients of Weston Travel voice interest in such places, I can chime in with suggestions based on memories and highlights of my past." Cindy has continued her mother's legacy both professionally and personally, and rel- ishes the time she now spends with her own daughter whom she considers to have a tight relationship with. "I think it's important for a family business owner to be patient and understanding, but also to make it enjoyable. You have to separate work and family, so I don't like to talk about it at home." "I am very proud of my mom," says Liza. "She sacrificed so much as a single parent to work hard at the office and provide for me throughout my life." Cindy does not see herself calling it quits anytime soon. And she admits she hasn't approached Liza about taking over the busi- ness. "I'm guessing my mother will never for- mally retire, and I am always an email or an hour's drive away to chip in as needed," states Liza. "My daughter, Callie, fourth generation of Weston Travel Service, just turned three, and has already logged many trips. Perhaps Callie will be an Instagram sensation record- ing her travel adventures and running tours in the 2030s, while I stay home and run the books. She's started off strong so far!" 145 W e l l e s l e y W e s t o n M a g a z i n e | s u m m e r 2 0 1 7
