it. is. OFFICIAL.

we bought our tickets earlier this week- we are really going!

i cannot tell you how excited this makes me!
{in case you can't tell?}

everybody has their happy place, where you feel at once comfortable but also energized, and very much yourself...for me that place has always been spain.

i visited twice while i was studying in belgium, then followed with an internship in madrid in 2005...and sadly that was the last time i have been to the fair country. 

luckily for me, my in-laws have not yet been to spain...which i saw immediately as a sign: i was meant to take them!  so this fall, early november, we're packing up {yes, i have already started my packing list: i love a list} and heading over!  

12 days.

3, 4, 5...however many cities we can squeeze out of our rail pass...

the food...the art!...the parks...the wine...i'm in heaven just thinking about it.

so this is where my mind has been for the past week, i'm more or less in charge of planning this shin-dig, so i've been hot to trot setting up a rough schedule, to be ironed out as the months progress.

have you been??  what are your favorite memories?  suggestions??
where is your favorite place to visit?


  1. Oh my goodness, I'm SO excited for you!! Glad you'll still be around VA in October when I come out here. ;)

  2. Oh man, I am so excited for you!!! You sound so excited, so it means you are going to have tons of fun. I didn't see much of Spain, except the Barcelona airport and dock (that was where the cruise left from). So, enjoy it for me! :)


it's always great to hear from you!
