Today's guest poster is adorable Gracie from Queensland, Australia!
Hi this is Gracie from Gracie Bella Butterfly. The lovely Erin asked if I could write about my favourite vacation spot while she is off enjoying herself in England.
As a child we didn't really go away for holidays much. We did go down to Sydney occasionally but we didn't do away much besides that. I think it's because my parents wanted to take us to the Philippines every few years. It's one of my favourite places to go visit. I have a lot of family still living there so it's wonderful to be able to see all my cousins, aunts and uncles.

I went on my first trip just before I turned one, but I had my first birthday there too. Since then I have been back five times and have loved each trip.

I get to be immersed in the culture and I get to know the history of the Philippines. My last trip was even more special because Jason (my hubby) was able to come with me and my parents (though he wasn't my hubby yet). I loved that I was able to share this part of my life and heritage with him. Plus the shopping and food are great!!

I'm so thankful that my parents gave us the opportunity to visit the Philippines several times. I'm looking forward to the day when Jason and I can bring our future children there.
Thanks for letting me guest post Erin. I hope you and your family have a wonderful trip!
Gracie is gorgeous. She writes a lovely blog about her life as a newlywed in Australia, and includes lots of wonderful posts about books and stationery and lots of other things I love. Go visit her. You'll be smiling for sure!
