surprises

We've had an exciting year here this year. Our oldest graduated from high school and turned 18. I turned 40 last week(woo hoo!) and next month Jim and I celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary.
This year we wanted to do something big; but we weren't sure what. We were living in California when we had our 5th anniversary. Went to NewYork City for our 10th and for our 15th it was off to Honolulu. 

We debated different places; knew we wanted to go somewhere warm but we aren't sit on the beach peoples. One night Jim mentioned the idea of a cruise. Next thing I knew, he did this.


A 12 night Mediterranean cruise! We fly into Istanbul, Turkey(!!!!!), spend a few days there then board the ship. We have 3 more ports in Turkey before heading to the Greek Islands, Naples and ending in Rome.
This is seriously a dream come true; I've only ever wanted to go to Turkey and Greece in Europe and we get to hit them both with one shot.

A few weeks ago it was my bloversary that I totally missed. And I want to share some love with you. So I am giving away this quilt


The quilt measures roughly 56x56. It was pieced and quilted by me.


The pattern is a freebie from Moda Bake Shop.


So leave a comment on this post and I'll draw a winner when I get home(on the 25th).
 This giveaway is open internationally :)
