It's all Greek to Me

I know I haven't been posting a lot lately. Why? You wonder? Well, mostly, I got lazy. Also, it's summer, which means there are more things going on. There's "the guy", which means I'm spending time with him and not blogging.

But, as many of you seem to be interested in my travels, I thought I'd update you on the latest trip. "The guy" and I are going to GREECE in a few weeks! I don't know why, but I'm still amazed that this man is willingly going to travel to another country with me and be with me 24/7 for eight days. Two of those days will be spent together in airports. Eeek!

We will be spending three days in Athens, and then three days on the island of Santorini, which is supposedly one of the most beautiful islands in the world. There's a volcano, some black sand beaches (never seen one before), beautiful towns and scenery, etc.

To say I'm excited would be an understatement. :)

*jealous*

I seriously hope you have a fun time, and I know you'll take plenty of pictures. :)

Renee said...

Wow! That sounds so wonderful! I hope you have a great time. Love your countdown for it. hee hee

re: your closet. I've found it much less stressful to donate items to a charity and take it off my taxes than to try to sell it because no one wants to give you what it's worth. And it's much faster. Just call one of those places that will come pick it up and you're done! LOL!

I need to call someone.

I seriously recommend an Ion candy bar while you're there... only don't drink beer directly afterwards (don't ask).

Wow. Sounds like a fun time!

Airports bring out the best/worst in people, so be prepared......

Geggie said...

Yay! Its going to be so fun!! It'll be such a neat chance for you guys to "bond" and fall deeply, crazy in love.

Bone said...

The trip to Greece sounds exciting. The relationship sounds like it's going well, too :)

Seems like most everyone is blogging less during the summer.

One Scrappy Gal said...

Greece?!

That's SO awesome!

Can I come too? I promise not to peek at you two. I'm small so you can put me in your suitcase...then I'll run around and give you privacy. Pretty please? With a smushed frog on top?

Cheysuli said...

Greece? When you run away, you really do it right, don't you?

Virginia, like the state! said...

So cool! I hope you guys have a blast! But now I have to ask: What the hell do you do for a living that you get to travel all the time?! :)

And to answer your question: Jason dropped the Love Bomb after we'd been "officially exclusive" for almost a month--previously, we'd been "getting to know each other" for almost 3 months.
