Just Hanging Out
Two weekends ago, Steven and I headed out of town to Bend for our 12th Anniversary. We love that town. Lots of sun and a break from the rain and grey of winter. I really cannot complain about this winter though, we have had a sunny winter for the Pacific Northwest, but, nonetheless, Bend did not disappoint. Sunny days were in abundance. Steve's parents were generous enough to offer to take our kids for the weekend. Yes, they do that. Amazing family we are blessed with. We felt so spoiled, three days and nights away. Steven got me the necklace above. I absolutely love it in all of its chunky, aqua green glory. We hiked and biked and ate and shopped and relax and ate and slept in. It was marvelous. Our room had a view of the river and a wood burning fireplace. Heaven. When we got there I realized I forgot to bring a knitting project from home. Perfect excuse to run and buy some yarn. With Steven's encouragement, I headed out to buy some bulky yarn for a scarf for me.
It was lovely, relaxing, and went by too quickly. I love going away just the two of us and I also love coming home to my babies. They saw us coming up the drive and came running out to meet us. Love them to pieces. I always love coming home to them.
