Best Birthday Gift Ever

I am an Olympics junkie. I will watch sailing at 2:00 in the morning (the Americans were winning!). I have been known to screech in frustration when the brooms in the curling competition don't give the rock the right angle. I adore the ice skaters and the tennis players (obviously) and the lugers and the marksmen and... well, let's be honest. I love all of it. For two weeks every two years, I am glued to the television and cheering on the red, white and blue.
But next year? Next year I will be just a little closer to the action. The husband, in what will go down in history as the Best Birthday Gift Ever, gave me tickets to the Olympic Swimming Trials in Omaha, Nebraska next summer. I will be watching three fabulous days of swimming sessions in the company of my best friend from college!!! Oh. My. Gosh. Michael Phelps! Ryan Lochte! Natalie Coughlin! Dara Torres!

Is it June yet?

That's a pretty awesome gift! The best ones are always the ones that involve going somewhere.

Thanks, seriously, I am very happy for you to select photos & use, along with words; I don't really think I can write word for you. I hope this is OK, like your blog.
