Mom and I spoke on the phone last night about what I wanted for my birthday. I had a hard time coming up with any ideas - I really have everything I need or want - but then Mom proposed a weekend getaway. I warmed up to that idea and we've decided that we'll jump on plane or in the car and head out somewhere for a long weekend in 2008. (I don't have any vacation time left for this year, that's why it'll be delayed.)
So, what's the contest?
Suggest a place for Mom and I to spend a long weekend together - everyone who leaves a comment/suggestion will be entered in a drawing for a free pair of earrings created by yours truly.
On my birthday (that's the 12th), I'll toss everyone's name in a hat and let one of the dogs or cats paw out a winner.
Some ideas that have been batted around already include:
- Boston, Massachusetts
- Toronto, Ontario
- Halifax, Nova Scotia
- Williamsburg, Virginia
- Savannah, Georgia
- Portland, Maine
- Charleston, S. Carolina
Anything goes! Just need to make sure there's enough to do there to keep us busy for 2-3 days but also have enough down time so we can knit/stitch/read. As she's coming from Ohio and me from Jersey, pretty much anything east of the Mississippi will work. I'd love a San Fransciso getaway, but I'd spend half my time in the air for such a short trip.
So, leave your comments and suggestions for a weekend getaway for Mom and me and on my birthday, I'll pick a winner.
