greece!

Thursday, October 14, 2010

My mother decided to take her girls (there are only girls in our family, so no boys were excluded) to see one of the most beautiful sights she has ever seen. It was her 75th Birthday present to herself. The four of us hold a special bond, so this was a very special trip. A trip of a lifetime.

I took 850 photos. Seriously.
I'll be back over the next few days to share some of my favorites. Not too many, I promise.
Cheers! Yiamas!

  34. What an amazing adventure. Greece is such a wonderful, historical and traditional country. People are always warm and friendly and the scenery is something so grandiose and unique. As a child and young adult living in Europe Greece was one of my family’s favorite summer destinations. Cherish the moments and enjoy the 850 pictures over and over again. I am very happy for your mom, you and your sisters to have these special memories.
