* i came home from work wednesday to a husband with a sly smile on his face and a twinkle in his eye (sorry honey, it was a manly twinkle)
he : 'pack your bags, your going to alaska with your sister. in one month'
me : for the next twenty four hours 'REALLY?' 'what? no REALLY?' and a text from my sister,
my sister has been planning an alaskan cruise for over a year. one of her party cancelled, she called my husband, secretly, together, they made new plans, for me. EPIC. really incredibly epic. we are going to be on land and sea, on trains and glaciers, buses and horses and a helicopter. now i have to find an epic way to thank them both.
