FAMILY // THE BIGGEST SURPRISE EVER

So yes this is old news and it happened weeks ago but I'm pretty sure my husband and I were able to pull off the best surprise ever. Which means of course that I have to share it with you because honestly I have no idea how we were able to keep it a secret...

Just before Christmas, the day before we left actually for Mexico, Jonathan and I were talking about how we wish we could go see our family sometime during the holidays. I already had a trip planned for mid-January, but he wasn't going to be able to go with me. As we were lamenting over not being able to go, we started browsing flights and somehow found ridiculously cheap flights to Philadelphia... on New Years! What?!

What did we do? We did what any impulsive, lamenting, travel-loving couple would do. We bought those tickets in a heartbeat. And told no one......

Well that isn't completely true, we told my husband's parents (because we were about to spend a week in Mexico with them) and we told one of my sisters because someone needed to pick us up from the airport. Other than that though, we told no one. And we were so excited about it!! I think in fact we were more excited about the surprise than the actual idea of going. Wouldn't you though? It was going to be a big surprise...

And we did it!! We got to the house and still no one had any idea.......


The best part I think was that my mom was so mad at my sister and her boyfriend for leaving right in the middle of a game! She was so mad in fact that everyone in the house was getting ready to go out to do something fun as a family, without my sister, because they were so upset with her leaving... if only they knew right?? I'm pretty sure all hard feelings were gone pretty soon after we got back...

I'm not gonna lie.... I saw that video when you posted it on ig so it was no surprise but this time it made me tear up! Family is the most important thing to me (as I know it is you) and being with them is like no other. Being apart from them is like no other as well... Hard and sad. Which I think I take for granted because we've always lived so close. Thanks for posting. You're such a sweet lady!
