"No way, look at what Aunt Lou sent us!"

Adam came into the living room where Joan sat on the couch, indulging in one of the books that she never had the time for anymore. He held out two slips of paper to her.

She took them and her eyes grew wide when she realized that what she was holding was a pair of plane tickets. "Whoa. Paris? No way!"

He beamed at her, reading from the letter he received from Aunt Louisa. "Your uncle has recently closed a very lucrative deal and we know how much you would love to see Europe. How would you like us sponsoring a trip to France for you?"

Joan sat up a little straighter. She looked at the tickets again. "Holy crap, these are Business Class. Are they serious? They're giving us a luxury trip to Paris as a present, just like that? Adam, can we accept this?"

He shrugged. "Why not? You've seen their house. They have money. Wait until you hear this. It's not just a trip to Paris. She's also enclosed train tickets and hotel confirmations. It's a fully booked two week trip."

"Wait a minute, two weeks pre-booked? When? Can we take that much time off work?"

He grinned at her sheepishly and read more from the letter. "Adam, please don't hold it against me, I've taken the liberty to call both your employers and arrange for them to free you of your duties in the two weeks in question. (Don't worry, they both embraced the idea very enthusiastically and thought it was a wonderful surprise for you.) From experience I can tell you that July is the best time to see the lavender in bloom in Provence. It's absolutely beautiful, I think you will both love it."

Joan was stunned. "I don't know what to say." She looked at the plane tickets again, then got up and gave Adam a kiss full on the lips. "Looks like we'll be going to France in July."

His eyes sparkled with pleasure. "Yeah. Wow. I still can't believe it. Let me go call Aunt Lou."

"Give her a big, mushy thank you from me, will you?"

Adam was already on the way to the kitchen where he had left the cordless phone. Joan called after him, "And tell her she's the awesomemest aunt on the whole planet. And that I will forever love her until the day I die."

As Adam chuckled and vanished into the kitchen, Joan ran upstairs and woke the laptop from hibernation. She logged on to her Facebook and changed her status message to 'Joan can't wait to go to France in the summer!'

Then she clicked on the 'New Note' icon and started typing. She wanted everyone to know that she had the best aunt-in-law in the world.
