I'm going on Va-cay-shun!

This year, Chris and I will celebrate 10 years of marriage. Mama and Dad Bracken came up to us about a month ago and said something like this, "Hey, we have enough flier miles for two free tickets and enough points with a hotel company to get four or five nights free and we want to give these to you for your anniversary, so where do you want to go?" (Yes, I did hit the in-law jackpot! UH, I mean blessingpot!) After convincing Chris and debating about where to go, we decided on this place. Can you guess it? here is clue number 1:



Still not sure? Here is another hint:


Okay, the final hint. You should get it for sure now:


YES! We are going to Rome in June! I am so excited! Of course with Rome being built on seven hills and expecting tons of walking, I am seriously visiting the exercise room in our building about 5 times a week. Counting last week, I have 9 weeks to train. Last week, I lost 3 pounds and will try to keep you all updated.

Rome! Man, I can't believe it!

***In case you are wondering, the first picture is the Colosseum, the second is the Pantheon and the third, well, it's a map!

I CANNOT believe it!! We are celebrating our 20th anniversary and will be in Rome in May!!! We're actually doing a cruise in the Mediterranean, but will be in Rome on our actual anniversary (May 25th) ... so I'm not even jealous! So happy for you. We'll have to compare notes when we all get back!

Oh, a cruise! That sounds like so much fun! We will be in Rome on our actual anniversary, June 9th, also! Since you will be there first, you will have to let us know how it is. We have been listening to a series of podcast called "The History of Rome". I can't wait to get there and see the things we are hearing about!
