Trip set

Saturday, July 13, 2013

We are going to be married 40 years this Nov. and my husband was looking into a cruise for us. The cruise just wasn't coming together, we couldn't get a boat where we wanted and a few other things so it was not meant to be. When one door closes another opens. Today my brother in law and his wife came over and together we planned a trip to California. The only thing is they are both still working so they can't go until next year. That's ok with me, it gives me longer to lose weight for the plane ride. We live in Connecticut so going cross country is a fantastic vacation. We haven't been to CA in 38 years and it sure will be new to us.

So I've got a year to save up, lose weight and plan the things we want to see. I'm so excited, sometimes the anticipation is as good or better than the actual trip. I'm happy too having someone else come with us just in case my husband needs help, I will not be alone. My husband only had one thing on his bucket list and that was to see Venus Beach before he died. Looks like this is really going to happen!

    Whoo Hoo sounds like a great time. It is always nice to take a trip with someone else besides just you. Enjoy the many virtual trips you will take preparing for the trip. I love the looking forward to a trip like you said almost as much as the trip itself. Hugs

    Sometimes the fewer things we have in our buckets the better. It is easier to fulfill one wish and enjoy everything along the way to its completion.
