Celebrating Large!

Couple at Romantic Dinner


We may not be having a fine
candlelit steak dinner or
any of that nice frilly stuff
on this Valentine's Day.

However, we are about to embark
on a very ambitious family vacation.

We will be very busy packing up today
and preparing for a nearly two week
jaunt to the southern states.

This is a first for us.
We have never gone away
for this length of time.
It is going to be wonderful!
The kids are excited, as are we.

We leave very early Monday
morning... we didn't want to
miss more than one Sunday at
our favorite church...

The Moms are prepped for house
and animal sitting.
The neighbors have
offered their support...
in case the Moms get overwhelmed.
What a great neighborhood we live in!

I do hope you'll stay tuned to
Hospitality Lane as I intend
to post pictures nearly daily
so you can follow along on this
journey into Historic Sites
and just plain fun!

Anyway, so when Warren asked me
what special thing
we should do for Valentine's Day...
I told him..."Go to the Islands"...
and so we are!

Anything warm sounds wonderful right about now. We're not in the tundra anymore, but it's still below freezing. Brrr!

Looking forward to your updates. Have a beautiful time. Don't worry about a thing.

On Ashleigh's blog you shared:

**We have a tradition. Warren brings me peanut M&M's. I get such a kick out of his making the effort to stop at a store and pick them up**

Gotta tell you, I laughed loud and hard over that comment! It's *so* Rocky!

Have a simply marvelous time on vacation, dear friend. I look forward to reading all about it. Will you be checking in? How 'bout now? Can I drive? I'm a very good driver. Only on Saturdays though on the driveway. ;o)

My Dear Jane...

You make a very tired me laugh! Great sense of humor! I am picturing you going back and forth in your driveway...silly. I was driving with those big truckers today...whooo-hooo! I taught them a thing or two...lol.

I love, love, love my peanut m&m's and I love the man who brings them to me!
