    So my FI and I have this longstaning joke that he is going to buy me a lake. I'm not exactly sure how that happened... but we just know he is going to buy me one someday.

    Well, after seeing Momma Mia this weekend... I decided I would MUCH rather have a private island in Greece. How beautiful!!!

    We decided to buy an island, build a couple of villas and specialize in destination weddings.

    Any takers?

    Shoot... now I just need 8 million dollars to buy this one...

    Nafsika Island, Greece, Europe


    Do you and your FI have any grand plans? LOL. Even if they are a bit impractical?

      So I sent the island to FI to investigate.

      "Oh. That's nice. I bet we could build villas in the hills... oh, that's very nice. How much is it?"

      "8 million dollars"

      "That's not bad at all"


      ... never in a million years did I picture having a conversation that said "yeah, 8 million dollars is nothing"

      Aye!

          DH has always wanted his own lake that he can stock with fish and I have no problems with that! I always imagine sipping on my coffee in the morning with the birds chirping while I'm in awe of my surroundings. So tranquil and peaceful.

            Maybe he is saving up to buy you a BMW horse trailer and a diamond encrusted saddle for your pony?

                Hee hee. I can imagine what the look on my face would be if I opened one!!

                Let me know if you get the island... I mean. Maybe we could be sister islands or something like that or heck... I'll hook my FI up with your DH... and we could buy the same island... then I don't have to be lonely!
