BOOKED!

Not in this way...


...which, of course, I would never complain about, but BOOKED in this way...



WE'RE GOING TO SPAIN!!!!!!!!!

(No, not YOU--I'm giving away a bookcase, remember, not plane tickets to exciting world destinations--maybe you can purchase a book about Spain for your bookcase or something really drastic--visit your local library. You're responsible for your own Spain fix. Sorry.)

Now, back to the WE'RE GOING TO SPAIN!!!!!! thing.

WE'RE GOING TO SPAIN!!!!!!!!!!...my husband served a mission there, always wanted to go back, always wanted to take me, and now, 28 years and 8 kids later, we're realizing the dream (baby!).

Who knows but that in about a month's time I'll be standing innocently in a market in Valencia, Spain and...



I'm guessing I'll be more like the ones oohing and ahhing and pointing and weeping than the ones singing the lov-ely opera, but I CAN"T WAIT!

[Speaking of bookcases, you've got 12 MORE DAYS to enter thyself in the GRAND BOOKCASE GIVEAWAY. The link at the top of my sidebar right there (I'm pointing) will take you there]

LUCKY!!! My aunt and uncle are leaving to serve their mission there...today! I have always wanted to go to Spain. Take a picture of you by a cool castle for me. I hope to go there next summer while I have family there and to celebrate my 20th wedding anniversary. Have a great time, I am jealous.

Wow, Valerie! Good for you guys for going for it. My husband always wanted to go back to England and Wales, but we never did. Sigh.

You go, girl!
