As I had mentioned before, my parents entered (and won!) a “Trip of Their Lives” from Scottevest. Their prize is a two-parter: the first trip is to Italy for the honeymoon they never had, and the second part will be a photo-journalistic trip to Congo that my dad will be taking later this summer. My parents had never traveled out of the Americas, so this has been a HUGE deal for them.

Visit their site to see photos and video by my dad, blog entries by my mom, and to learn all about the Scottevest apparel they’re wearing. They’re gearing up for a Skype call with Scott himself this evening!

(And seriously–if you’ve never tried Scottevest, you’ve got to. My mom wears her Molly jacket everywhere, and I’m in love with my trench.)
