I have been waiting till it was official to write about this. It's official! We are Chicago bound this June!

I can't wait...we are going to see our dear friends Anna & John there. They came here a few summers ago for a week with other online friends. Anna also attended our wedding. We have had an open (rather, PLEADING) invitation to go to Chicago for yrs. God love Anna lol.

This came about in an odd way...let me explain. We have 2 other online friends among us who we have chatted with for atleast 6 yrs now. I knew Jenn and Les online before they knew eachother lol. They fell inlove. AWE.. It couldn't have happened to two better ppl. They are meant to be together those 2. The hard part is he is canadian, from Bc and she is american from Georgia. Not an easy relationship to say the least.

Friends have watched this couple cope with the difficulties of a long distance amour...cryed with happiness when they each travelled to be with the other on rare but precious moments. Known how difficult it has been to aquire all the information and paperwork needed to plan their life together under the same roof. Our friends actually got married last Nov. It was however bitter sweet as they couldn't yet live together.

Well! After over 2 long yrs of redtape and frustrations.....they will finally be driving HOME to canada in June. Les actually works in the North West Territories now...way way way up north. He is flying to Jen in June so they can drive her car all the way across the country with his beloved wife and son in tough. FINALLY!

We are all very happy for them...The bonus for us is...since they will be passing by Chicago, they have decided to stop at Anna's for a cpl days break...and since its the closest we will ever be to them on the planet we thought it would be cool to go at the same time. When I told Anna my thoughts, I thought she was going to have a heart attack while she was screaming , jumping up and down and pinching herself to make sure it was happening for real. (me thinks she was happy lol). Thankfully Anna & John have a very big house and is willing to have us all there...she is beside herself with excitement lol.

We certainly didn't need an excuse to go to Anna's...we always intended to go some day. Given we hadn't planned much for holidays this year this just fell into place with the timing.

I can't wait to see all our friends...seeing some of Chicago and seeing my house in the rearview mirror as we drive away lol.

Last year we only got 5 days away with out honeymoon...This will be a nice break for me. We have a great sitter who knows the clients well so we leave knowing all will be just fine.

The only problem I find myself thinking about at the moment is not having anything to wear...literally lol. I could have much worse things to think about lol. I am wearing the only pants that actually fit me right now by june I will have opened my mom's and sister's box and hopefully find stuff that fits lol.

I am so excited!! It's something very special to look forward to! It will be a great break for us. I love my job but doing it 24/7 gets tirering. My one day a week out of the house is often just getting more stuff done.

We plan to take our time, stop halfway to stay in a hotel and arrive the next evening at Anna's. I look forward to seeing some country I haven't seen.

Now I can WooHoo!!!

*Dances around the the room singing I'm so excited..that I just can't hide it*

This is going to be the best summer of my entire life. I am so very glad it all worked out the way it did. It was certainly meant to be.

I love spending time with my friends, we don't live close enough to do it as often as we'd like but when we get to see eachother it's pure bliss.

Chicago is a great city, even though I have only been at the airport and drove the highways going to Kentucky, but there is this feel there that I can't explain...People that I encountered along the way was very nice. I am sure you will have a great time...Good luck
