So I am down at the mailboxes and there is an unexpected package waiting. "Cool!" I said to myself; I love surprises. I jump back in the car and drive home smiling. I gently squish the large envelope trying to guess its contents. No luck. Okay, open it already! Inside I find that my good friend Cherry has made me an awesome ornament hat. Funny thing is I remember her talking about doing an ornament exchange earlier in the summer but nothing else was said about it. Ha! Never thought I would end up being the ornament. Thank you, Cherry. You rock!
If you ever have a chance to sail to Alaska, do it! If you can save up a little more to be able to stay in The Haven Courtyard on Norwegian Cruise Lines, do it! For our anniversary Peg and I decided we would take our first cruise to Alaska. NCL sales called us, last minute, and offered us a deal to upgrade to a penthouse in The Haven Courtyard aboard the Norwegian Pearl. We did and it was fantastic! The Bird of Paradise Courtyard Suite Room 14014 (an S5 level penthouse suite) would be our home for the seven day cruise which started in Seattle, Washington.
