My mother-in-law (Baba to her grandchildren) is a really amazing woman. C and I started dating when we were seniors in high school and she made me a part of the family from the beginning. I have always been able to count on her...for anything.
This woman has done nothing but work HARD her whole life taking care of her family-husband, children, mother, father, in-laws, sister and now grandchildren. Like many Moms, she has put herself last on the to-do list...always wanting to make sure everyone she cares about are taken care of first.
She turned 72 in May and just retired this past summer from her position as Director of Extension for Sarasota County here in FL.
This woman deserves a BREAK and I am proud to say she knows how to do it...in STYLE! Right now she is 2 weeks into a 3 and 1/2 month cruise of The World! Yes...The World. She is on Holland America's Cruise ship The Amsterdam which is one of their most luxurious.
She is having the time of her life and I am so over-the-top thrilled for her!
|The first Formal Night!|
|Sitting at one of the many ports!|
The Panama Canal...she said this was just completely amazing!
Where is she now? ...the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
We miss her lots around here but we are all so glad she is having the time of her life! I will continue to follow her journey periodically as this is a big event for our whole family.
Cheers and Bon Voyage Carolyn! I am so happy that you did this for yourself and that you are really enjoying it from head to toe, forwards and backwards. You are AWESOME!
