After months of talking...

...about it they've finally done it.

Maureen and Jerry in Ardmore.

My lovely sister and her husband are coming home for a three weeks summer holiday in June.  My sister is English but her husband is American and they live in Arkansas so we don't get to see each other very often.  So what a pleasure it was to get an email today telling me that she had booked their flights!

I'll be talking to her later on to get all the details but for now it's just good to know that she has actually booked.

Linking to Dayle and her wonderful weekly Simple Pleasures party.

How wonderful! I have a son in New York, and he's coming to Oregon next month for the first time in 2 1/2 years!

Sue said...

This such a wonderful surprise enjoy.
Thanks for sharing.

Just the planning of it will be a pleasure. Just wait until she steps off the plane. It'll be bliss.

I'll giggle if you report back that she is starting to talk like a southerner.

hint: If she says, "Bless her heart..." that's not necessarily a compliment. (Insert big silly grin here...)

How wonderful! I'm sure you will enjoy the time together. And if she lives in Arkansas, she is a "next door" neighbor to me. (At lest next state.)

Sisters are such very special friends, aren't they ?!
