Without a doubt our beach house! It is not a palace, we hope to build our dream house someday on the lot. But, it is 200 yards from the beach, 50 yards from the bay, and we are surrounded by some of my oldest friends. It is a place that is all bout family, fun, and relaxation...our little piece of heaven on earth!
Just blogged about it this week if you care to take a look!

A trip last Spring to Hamburg, Germany to visit an old friend who had been living there. She totally needed the company and I couldn't leave the country faster!

when my husband was in residency, we had little money. i purchased a nice glider rocker and rocked all three babies with it. i will never part with it and hope to save for grandbabies!

Hmmmm, that's a tough one.

The money that went on my visa to marry my man!

So many examples come to mind, it's hard to choose. A special trip I took with my husband to Europe before kids...special gift for my mom's 60th birthday...my big painted floor lamp in my house. Usually when I pay top dollar for something and the quality lasts...that always makes me feel like it was worth the extra $.

Oh, how can I forget the money we spent on finishing our basement - where our kids play every day - that area is worth its weight in gold!

Probably the airline tickets I bought for my grandmother to come spend a week with Hubby and I during the summer of 1998. One year later she was diagnosed with Alzheimers and within 3 years she had died. I'll never forget the time we spent together that week.

Fertility Treaments - Six years of trying, three miscarriages and MANY tears...we got our only son! I would do it all again and again!Money and emotion well spent.

I went skydiving once and I'll never forget what an amazing feeling that was! I'm not sure it's the *best* money I've ever spent, or the most meaningful, but it was certainly the most exciting!

well, after reading all those,i think Lorilu wins the most meaningful $ spent--that was sweet! Mine would have to be our honeymoon week to Ocho Rios, Jamaica--it was just a perfect memory and I never expected it to be THAT great (not the sex-LOL!-not that it wasn't great,but i am speaking of the place and now i am of course babbling):) The amazing part was that we had no $ but got bumped up to a better resort in the Honeymoon Penthouse suite for the week b/c some girl needed more rooms for her wedding party! We didn't have to pay a penny extra and were treated like royalty and it was amazing--I will never forget it!
