You are trying to prepare your girls for next Christmas. Even though this year’s tree is packed with presents, next year will be a different story. The year 2018 will be a big year as your older daughter will be graduation from college, your younger daughter will be graduating from high school, and you and your husband will be celebrating your 30 year anniversary. In order to commemorate these three events, your family has decided to celebrate by taking a major trip. The goal is to travel to Santorini, Greece, for an extended vacation.
In an effort to make this big trip manageable you have let the girls know that next year you will forego both birthday and Christmas gifts, all in an effort to pack the three week overseas vacation full of great experiences. Your husband swears that you will never be able to hold to that deal. He fears that instead of skipping Christmas and birthday you will still buy the girls gifts, effectively cutting into the vacation fund that you are trying to build up. What your husband does not know, though, is that you have some free presents that you are planning. From sea glass rings that you have made yourself to other kinds of homemade sea glass jewelry.
