I'm sorry I've neglected you.....
Is it just me, or did July fly by?!! Life has been full. My business is growing, which is so encouraging. We've had our first dinner guests, plus some.
Most recently we took a four day mini trip down south. The first half was to Portland, Oregon where we stayed at our favorite place, McMenamins @ Edgefield. Summer time brings quiet a buzz to this resort of the PNW (Pacific Northwest). In the past we've stayed in the Fall and Spring which are less crowed and a little dreamer, for the atmosphere is different... or I'm slowly learning that I much prefer Fall to any other season. We had a great visit and celebrated 6 years of marriage!! Yeah! Hard to believe 6 years has past already!
After crusing around Portland we headed up to the Olympic Peninsula to the town of Sequim. This past weekend was the annual Lavender festival. We have some dear friends who happen to live right in town so we visited with them, ate some delicious food and smelled all sorts of lavender things!!
We've both been working so hard lately it was nice to get away and relax just the two of us. We've decided that we are going to keep it up, every few weeks taking a few days off to just visit a new place and just be.
Here are a few pictures from the past few weeks.
