We traveled from Orem to Reno, NV, to Weaverville, CA, to Eureka, through the Redwoods to Fort Bragg, CA, back north through the Redwoods, on to Crescent City, CA, then into Oregon, wandering up the coast to Newport, then over to Corvallis, through Bend, back into Idaho, and finally, home again, home again, jiggity jig.
This pause allowed us to step away from the hustle and bustle of our lifes. How lovely to be away from computers, traffic, work, people, and be just us. Scott and I seldom, as I'm sure parents understand, have time to be a couple. And we like each other, and we like spending time together, especially when it doesn't involve doctors' visits! Wandering the beautiful forests, seeing ginormous trees, walking the beaches and gathering sand dollars and rocks, and sitting next to each other watching people and enjoying great food was invigorating and healing.
I'm not going to use the "re" words, so - we are fresh, anew, emerging with plans - a future involving forward motion. What a treat!
Many thanks to David - Fort Bragg, Audrey Ann - Corvallis, Uncle and Amy - Homedale, and Kristee, Blanca, and Dad and Mom for their generosity.
