Will is turning the big 3 0 this week!

To celebrate, we took a special surprise trip this past weekend. I'm still trying to find words to describe the past few days. It was, by far, the most fun we have had of the past 13 years of birthdays we have celebrated together! :)

The week before we left, he opened several gifts that gave him some clues to our surprise destination. I'll give them to you and see if anybody can correctly guess the destination.
(and guessing for those of you who knew where we were headed!)

The first gift he opened was a pack of four candles and the card read:
romantic candlelight and cozy fires
p.s. - did you notice the scent of the candle?
(it was driftwood)

Second gift was wrapped in a tie box from JoS. A. Bank and the card on the outside read:
You'll need to pack a coat and tie, but you'll also need your hiking gear

Inside was a gift card to Books-A-Million for him to pick out a new book to take.

The last gift was also a book (a history book) of our destination and on the outside of the box, the card read:
you may want to catch up on the history, because there is lots of it!

And one more clue that he didn't have, but I'll share with you. A photo that was taken this weekend during our stay:
We are suppose to be imitating a famous photograph (although we look nothing like the people in the real photo!)
I hadn't seen the picture in several years and was working from memory and also from the direction of the three little old ladies who were taking our picture! But it is close enough to give you an idea...

Any guesses?


  1. Ooooooooo!! I know, I know, .... pick me, pick me, I know!! hahaha, just joking, I really do know so I can't guess, but I can't wait to hear more about it!! ;)

  2. Is it Cumberland Island Georgia? The pose is like JFK, Jr. and Carolyn Bessette. I love your blog and the tutorials. You made some Rosie Posie dolls for me last Christmas and my nieces loved them!


  3. I don't know... ummm... the outer banks?
