  1. Believe it or not, it’s my favorite outdoor chair on my patio with a stack of books on a table next to me. Nothing wrong with home sweet home!

  2. Anywhere quiet with a cocktail or glass of wine and a great stack of books to read would be the ideal vacation spot!

  3. While I always love going someplace warm, my dream vacation would be to go north like Greenland or Iceland to see the Northern Lights.

  4. My dream vacation would be to go to Europe to see all the Cathedrals and eat lots of pizza and pastries in Italy and France.

  5. After the winter we had, anywhere warm without snow. I love history, so I would love to travel from Boston to Maine.

  6. My dream vacation spot is Bondi Beach, Australia. We are going to the big island of Hawaii, so that reading material would come in handy for sure!

My 3 children said they were going to send us their for our 25th Wedding anniversary and they couldn’t afford it. We’ll be celebrating our 45th wedding anniversary this coming September it would be nice to finally be able to go. Here’s wishin and hopin I’m one of the lucky winners.

  17. My dream vacation would be anywhere outside of my city. A peaceful and quiet place is the dream I am looking for.

  18. I’d love to win a trip somewhere close to home, like Myrtle Beach. It’s just something about lying in bed when you first wake up or right before you go to sleep and hearing the waves hit the shore. Two words…simply beautiful.
