Guess where we’re going..?

There’s a bit of excitement buzzing around here this week. John and I will be celebrating our 25th anniversary this summer– we got married when we were mere babies!  😉 — and we’ve talked for awhile about the possibility of taking a ‘big’ trip to celebrate.  Hawaii was one thought, but we decided it might be fun to go someplace less traveled.

Our 20-year-old daughter is currently studying in Chile, and we decided– why not take advantage of this fact and take a trip this spring while she is there to show us around? As I write this, there are suitcases all over our bedroom.  John and I are in a pleasant flutter of packing and anticipation and child-care wrangling, preparing for a week-long getaway to Chile!   As the time gets closer, I look forward to sharing more about our plans. And of course, of course I’ll be blogging from Chile, telling you all about it!  Just for a tiny taste of what’s ahead, here are a few blog posts I’ve been reading as we prepare:

Next Stop: Santiago, Chile

Valparaíso Getaway


  1. I have goosebumps! So excited for you!

  2. How fun – and what a great idea. Glad you are going somewhere so exciting (and I agree, much better than Hawaii!) Have a great time!

  3. I hope you have a fabulous time. Can’t wait to hear all the exciting places and things you do and see.

  4. That is so exciting. As I type this, I am sitting in London. My husband and I are on the last leg of our big trip for Christmas/birthday/27th anniversary. We spent a week in Seoul visiting our son and daughter-in-law and now a week in London visiting another daughter. What a blessing it has been to see where our kids have been living in other cultures.

  5. How fun! I hope y’all have a great time!!

  6. Have a wonderful time! I was able to travel to Chile back in 1992 and absolutely loved it there! Hope I can go back some day! Safe travels.

  7. I hope that you have a wonderful time! I am sure that you will be exhausted with the preparations, but will enjoy your time in Chile. Safe travels!!!! Congratulations on your wedding anniversary.

  8. Ahhh!!!! How exciting!! 🙂 I can only imagine the great photo ops and memories awaiting you. 🙂

  9. Did you hear that I get an unexpected adventure, too?! I get to accompany Greg on his business trip to Shanghai, then we’ll stop by Taiwan for a few days. We’ve already contacted some of our friends there. I feel like I’m going to have a language test, though. Hope I can get some people to understand me, otherwise I will be a bit discouraged.

  10. How exciting – hope you love it and looking forward to your blog posts from Chile!

  11. Stay out of the mines! LOL! Have a great trip and congratulations on your 25th!

  12. What a super idea!

  13. Since nobody asked, ‘Do both grandmas come and watch the kids?’
