greece!

My mother decided to take her girls (there are only girls in our family, so no boys were excluded) to see one of the most beautiful sights she has ever seen. It was her 75th Birthday present to herself. The four of us hold a special bond, so this was a very special trip. A trip of a lifetime.
I took 850 photos. Seriously.
I'll be back over the next few days to share some of my favorites. Not too many, I promise.
Cheers! Yiamas!

What a wonderful idea! Such a sweet pic. When I was in the Navy, the sailors would talk about how much they loved Greece. I'm happy for you to have shared such a great moment with your mother and sisters, and am looking forward to the pictures.

What an amazing adventure. Greece is such a wonderful, historical and traditional country. People are always warm and friendly and the scenery is something so grandiose and unique. As a child and young adult living in Europe Greece was one of my family’s favorite summer destinations. Cherish the moments and enjoy the 850 pictures over and over again. I am very happy for your mom, you and your sisters to have these special memories.

It is my life long dream to travel to Greece!!! I'm addicted to all things Greek...luckily my dear next door neighbors are from Greece....they are actually there for the whole month of October as well...they attend St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox in Oakland and I NEVER miss their festival...BAKLAVA!!! What a trip of a lifetime for you girls....how wonderful! I'm sure you got some knitting done on those long flights :)
