Hi. Thank you for this opportunity ! First I want to say , I am in Texas , I was raised in Ft.Lauderdale Fl. And miss it so much. I have not been "Home" in 20 plus years.. I have 4 childhood friends I miss tremendously. They all still live in Fl. , we always said we need to do a girls trip ! As with everybody life just got in the way. It's now the biggest regret I will ever have to live with ! My very best friend of 42 years , picture perfect health , passed away suddenly and unexpectedly in September.. She actually had moved to Dallas , for work and we still did not take the time well I did not for many reasons and none of them any excuse. I did get to see her last May hen she came to my daughters wedding ! Thank GOD ! You see , she had a Brain aneurysm just out of the blue , Before I could get there she was gone.. She left  behind 2 beautiful smart daughters ! One is a nuclear scientist!! The other in college still..Her sister is one of the other 4 I would LOVE to pack up go to Fl. And spend time with ! I want to take her , the girls, and her mother ( raised me too ) and just go down to the keys for the weekend ! If the girls can't , I have my other 2 lifetime friends , we can all go ! I am just sick and miss my BFF everyday !! I can't let anymore time pass before , I go ! I am not healthy and it's only getting worse .. So one way to another , money will come for me to fulfill this dream ! It may just take a few years ! Thank you so much  again for this opportunity !

This past summer saw the passing of my dear Aunt Ann at the incredible age of 97.  Aunt Ann was a matron of our large family and her funeral brought together many of my cousins from near and far.  The night before her funeral mass, myself and my cousins Maryellen, Regina, and Margie met to select photos from her long life that would be used in a “Celebration of Life” collage.  During that evening we all reminisced fondly of our early years together and how close we were before our lives spun us in differing directions.  Being together for the first time in quite a while we decided to use the occasion to plan an upcoming short overnight excursion to one of Aunt Ann’s favorite locales, a casino in Atlantic City. 

 

The getaway trip was a blast to say the least.  The four of us had varying casino experience ranging from significant (myself) to none at all (Margie).  By the trip’s end, Margie had discovered her retirement’s new hobby, specifically fine dining and spa services, Maryellen became a whiz a video poker, and Regina spent delightful hours at the luxurious indoor pool.  We all parted with a magical sense of camaraderie and playfulness that was indescribable.

 

My hope is to rekindle this wondrous feeling of family and companionship by winning the Ultimate Girlfriends Getaway and taking my three cousins mentioned above with me to Las Vegas, NV for one week where we would stay at a deluxe hotel casino and lavish ourselves with sumptuous spa treatments, enjoy entertaining Vegas shows, and explore the exotic desert environs with sightseeing excursions to such places as the spectacular Grand Canyon and the Hoover Dam.
