One drawback on the Italy plan is that if I am lucky enough to be pregnant again then, I would miss out on all the wine!

OH went on a Greek islands holiday not that many years ago (on his own), so unfortunately that's low on the list for awhile!

So many great places. I like the idea of Spain, Italy and maybe Marseille/Aix-on-Provence. The greek islands are nice, it is too bad that oh has already gone.

You could always stock up on wine for later. Last time I was in Germany, I shipped six bottles to myself.

I love Germany, my family is from the black forest region originally so my distant cousins still live there. I went and stayed with them a week when I was 20.

We thought we stocked up on wine when we went to France last year- it was so easy since we were in our car and got the ferry back- but we really underestimated how fast we would go through it! I think we have one bottle left now that was from the vineyard where we camped one night.

I am SO excited to have wine tonight at my book club dinner. I haven't had any wine (or any alcohol) since the night before OH's dad's funeral, which was almost a month ago!

I bought a case of wine last time I was in southern France (May last year) and gave it to my husband as a wedding present (it's from our favourite wine region) and we are waiting until our 5th anniversary to start drinking them!

I didn't want a white wedding dress but I didn't have Clandie's luck finding one I liked, so I ended up getting one made (started with a burgundy bridesmaid dress and added silver embroidery/applique and a belt and some pintucks).

I am definitely looking at some bridesmaids dresses too! I think that's a great idea!

Mother-of-the-bride dresses were another avenue I was trying, it just happened that the base dress I decided on was a bridesmaid dress!

To be honest, my ideal dress would be a long, sleek 1920s Downton Abbey style dress, but I'm so top heavy, and short(ish), that style doesn't suit me. I like the idea of a short dress though, especially if we are roaming around the island taking photos. I definitely don't want to deal with a train!

Ok, I have invented some sort of story about OH and I getting a fire safe box for the house and putting our important documents in it to ask my mom if she had my documents, and that maybe I should take them back with me in case I need them for the future...
