So there you go! I'm leaving the country for the next week, I have no idea where I'm going, and I'll be 30 when I return :)
I'm soooo excited and surprised about this adventure! My husband is truly amazing, and totally great at pulling off magical, mysterious, romantic schemes like this without ever letting on. We actually have a term for his skillfully sweet machinations: "Layahs" -- As in, "Oh My God, you totally had me believing that we were going to celebrate my birthday by going to the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade! Nice layah of deception!"
I've decided that for the sake of total relaxation and escape, I'm going to stop posting on Marvelous Kiddo while we're gone. Sorry about the sudden cessation, but hopefully I'll have lots of stories and photos to make up for it when we return.
Meanwhile, I was thinking it would be fun to incorporate another giveaway into this event, so here's the deal: Leave a comment (one per person, please) on this post by November 28th at Midnight PST and tell me where you think I'm going. Where ever I end up, I'll buy a charming souvenir and when I return I'll choose a winner at random to receive the item.
While I'm gone, I hope you have a beautiful, happy, blessed Thanksgiving and may you all spend it with the ones you love. Ciao!
