I’ve been away so long that I feel the need to say ‘Hello everyone!’ It really hasn’t been that long, only two weeks, but it really feels like a long time.
For those of you who don’t know, I just returned from a family vacation to Italy. This was the first vacation I’ve taken with my entire family in over 15 years and it was pretty awesome.
My brother, my sister, and I – along with our significant others – decided to take my mom to Italy. My mom has always wanted to go to Europe, but never had the opportunity to go. So when I saw a Groupon for a trip to Italy, I knew this could be her opportunity.
I mentioned the deal to my brother and sister to see if they wanted to join Kate and I on this trip, and also to see if they wanted to split the cost of our mom’s ticket. Everybody said that they would go, but my sister said she couldn’t really contribute for my mom’s trip because she’s planning a wedding and she’s already over-budget… Yet another reason why I don’t understand big weddings, but that’s a different discussion.
