There's a lot of excitement around here....

because we've booked next year's holiday......DD1 and her friend knew exactly where they wanted to celebrate their respective 30th and 25th birthdays.....and they asked us to come along with them.....how could we refuse such an adventure.
So next April we're spending 4 days in San Francisco......a week in Hawaii......and 3 days in Los Angeles......all booked through Complete North America who came highly recommended by Becky....[thanks for all your advice,Becky].

So now we are poring over guide books.....and DD1 has already made a list of all the 'must see' places to visit....and compared prices....and decided what needs to be booked in advance....and....and....possibly made us feel exhausted already!!!! But did I mention how excited we are.
Just after we booked the holiday......a package arrived for me....from none other than Becky herself.....with a blog prize I had won......and it couldn't be more perfect
I am absolutely going to love using this journal folder for our holiday.....so even more thanks go to Becky.
Now the saving up must begin!!

Definitely exciting!!! San Francisco is one of my favorite cities. When Sarah lived nearby, we got multiple opportunities to visit. Hawaii is one of just two states my husband and I have not visited, and is high on my bucket list. My friends who visit tell me it is fabulous!

How exciting! I've been to San Francisco before, but am going again in September. This time I'm planning on touring Alcatraz. It was closed the last time I was there. That's been on my bucket list---along with Pearl Harbor. I've never been to Hawaii and don't have any concrete plans yet. Soon.

All three are such fun and DIFFERENT places - there will be so much for you to see and do. Which parts of Hawaii will you visit?
