{{Unexpected Vacation}}

Oh. My. Gosh. Loveys!!!
I'm going on a three-month vacation!!!!!

Last night, I get a call from my boss saying what a great job I've been doing and that I can take the next three months off as a reward - full pay with a travel allowance!
I couldn't breathe, I was so excited!

So first thing I did after getting off the phone with her?
Make a list of everything I want to do!

The first month I decided that I would stay close to home and just soak in everything I love to do:
coffee / writing / sunsets / books
I want to just sip coffee all day.
Get some writing in.
Read marvelous books.
Take in sunsets.

Off for an adventure!
I asked my hubby where he'd like to go and we both said in unison, "Venice!"

Venice, Italy
I'll arrange with the kids' school to have them off for the month (they can use this as Social Studies, right?  International Relations? I'll make it work), book the tickets, and we're off!
I've always wanted to go there and then tour the Italian countryside.
A whole entire month to soak up every ounce of Italian Everything - oh, what an experience it will be!

And on our way back, I have to stop in...
I'd stay with Pidgapeg for a week or so, of course.
We'd cook, craft, explore her town, and just relax...total bliss...I cannot wait!

Then off to explore all the cities in Nicholas Sparks' novels.
I need to figure out what B&Bs to stay at, but it'll be a nice little tour to do for a couple of weeks.
Then back home.
It's going to be wonderful, marvelous...like a dream.
Then I woke up.


Today's Blogtember prompt was:  
If you could take three months off from your current life and do anything in the world, what would you do?
How would you answer?


  1. How fun!! I love your spirit and like you, I really love reading, writing and traveling to literary places... and Italy. I long to go to Florence. Wouldn't it be fun to visit all the locations in Nicholas Sparks books? I would like to meet him for a cup of coffee and find out if he has some connection with the autism community because he includes it so regularly in his books.

    My three months? All about literary roadtripping - we could fit in some Nicholas Sparks spots! Climb aboard!!

  2. Oh you bum! I totally believed you LOL :)

  3. ::giggles:: we can all dream! Your 3 months sounds very sweet and relaxing!

  4. Okay, but don't stay long in Venice! I can't wait for you to come see meeeeeee!

  5. What a great take on today's challenge! You make me laugh!

  6. Ah! Venice!! Sounds like a lot fun.
    Clever take on the prompt :)

  7. Oh I was so thrilled for you! #whatatease
