Hey guys!! I am so excited to tell you that Promise & I are going to Rome THIS SUNDAY for a little over a week. We really can’t wait. This trip came as a huge surprise to us! Our good friend is house swapping with a family in Rome and they invited us to come be a part of it. AHHHH!!! Promise and I have been trying to play catch up and research some things that we would want to see before we get there. So, we need your help!!

Have you been? WHAT DO WE NEED TO SEE? Any favorite places, restaurants or key tips? Promise vows to take tons of photos.

This is precisely what I will be doing over the next 7 days. What do you do on ‘vacation’ to refresh and relax? John Eldredge talks about the difference between a visit and a vacation. I’m not sure this trip fits his definition of ‘vacation’. Take a listen – http://ransomedheart.podbean.com/2008/08/06/vacation-thievery/
For now…I’m off to board my plane. Let it begin!

There are many reasons that i like southwest:

1. They have a place to work on your computer in the airport. complete with plugs and everything. hahahah…promise says we look like ‘Gadget McGee’ – i agree.

2. they got us on a flight today!

3. they’re cheap
