A Little R&R Does a Soaper Good

My sweet husband and I got away this week for a little working vacation to the Washington coast (cute little town called Seabrook). Amazingly, the weather held for us and we got three whole days of sun. It was lovely respite from our normal daily routine. Even though we did emails, blogged, and (of course) Facebooked, we managed to go hiking around the beautiful Lake Quinault. We even found a beautiful deer to keep us company for a bit.

In addition to hiking in Lake Quinault, we also saw the world's largest ... um, Sequoia? Redwood? Spruce? Cedar! Cedar! It was big!

My husband got in a few rounds of golf while I happily cocooned away and read. I am obsessed with the Percy Jackson series right now. I know that they were written for um, 12 year old boys, but they're quite engaging and were the perfect vacation fare.

We also got some windy windy beach time in. You can't really see it very well in the photo, but I swear, that's my husband flying a kite. Other than the fact that enough wind to fly a kit means that there's also wind pushing sand all over the place, it was hilariously fun. We laughed and giggled. And I crash-landed the kite enough that my husband was declared the full-time driver for the kite.

Today was/is all about friends. I went on a huge hike with the ever fabulous Ms. Breakfast Cookie and Ms. Artist Extrodinaire. It was great to talk business, goal setting and vision for three hours. And tonight? We are the luckiest couple ever because we're going to a friends house for movie night, complete with movie popcorn and a funny movie ('Date Night'). There's even a rumor that there's Junior Mints and Sour Patch Kids ...
