    If I could wake up anywhere, I would pick along the beach in Italy. I'd love to experience this.

    If I could wake up and be anywhere?? I'd be somewhere tropical with my husband napping in a hammock. Yeap- that's where'd I'd be.

    I would have to say... next to my two little children and to the sound of thier contagious laughter.

    Exactly where I will wake - in my bed with two small, sweet little ones snuggled between myself and my husband. I absolutely love co-sleeping even though I it is something I once said I would never do.

    Great question! I would love to wake up in Vermont on a beautiful autumn day! I am orginally from Vermont and I miss all the beauty of that state! The crisp fall mornings, wearing sweater, going to football games! It's a magical place!

    I'm boring. It would be in my own bed in my own home - love my home. The only thing that would make it better is having my children there also. It's tough being an empty nester.
    Thanks for the give-away!

    I'd love to wake up in Munich, Germany again. I studied there in high school and would love the chance to go back and really appreciate the land and culture again.

    don't know if I made it under the time frame or not, but wanted to answer anyway....I would wake up in a beach hut on a great island, sunrise on my face.

    I'd love to wake up in Munich, Germany. I studied there in high school but would love to really go back and appreciate the culture and city nowadays.

    If I could wake up anuywhere, it would be in Venice, Italy. I would wake up to the traffic sounds on the Grand Canal.

    POIPU!!! Sorry to be so corny, but I love going to Kauai with my husband, and waking up there, going for a walk on the beach, then having a breakfast with lots of tropical fruits. It would totally help my funky mood I've been in!!

    I want to wake up at Yahats, Oregon -- so we could eat breakfast at our favorite restaurant -- then walk the beach with the dog and totally unwind!

    I would like waking up to a vacation in the mountains, in a cute little cabin right next to a lake, and with my hubby by my side. We hardly ever take a vacation just the two of us, and I would love to do nothing better than spend some time with him just relaxing in our pjs.

    at my grandma's, with her still there and my kids there too..
    this makes me remember how important ours stories are and how much we need to share them- for ourselves and for others.

    If I could wake up anywhere it would be after a nice long nap on the beach in Hawaii, Oahu specifically. With my hubby next to me on our towels.

    I would love to wake up just where I do every morning...lying beside my wonderful husband with my kids sleeping soundly in their rooms :)

    That's a tough one. At first I was thinking Barbados with my husband, but does that mean I don't want my son with me? Then, since I'm feeling a little down right now, I thought about waking up in 1998 where I could start my life all over prior to leaving home. But the more I think about it, I'm fine right where I am.

    If I could wake up would be Madrid. I spent a month living there before my senior year over 20 years ago and would love to go was so beautiful there!
    Thanks, Ali!

    I would wake up in a hotel on the beachfront with the doors open and birds chirping and the sun blazing in while sleeping on stiff white hotel sheets and very cute pink pajamas!
