So tonight I could sit down and blog, or I could get my laundry done, and return some long overdue emails, and pack like an adult since we will be on a plane in slightly more than two days (and in this rainy weather I swear that’s how long it is going to take my jeans to air dry so I better get to washing unless I want to resort to the dryer and look like a flood warning is in full effect the entire time I’m in Seattle.)
Anyway, since I obviously have like 900 things to do before this trip — which technically is a trip for Garrett’s Birthday (even though his actual birthday is not until May) — I thought I would post a few snapshots of the first birthday trip we ever took together up to Humboldt County way back when we were just babies in love. I think I may have washed my face and brushed my teeth first thing every morning on that trip. Ok, I probably wasn’t that crazy, but when I look at these pictures I just remember how excitedly new everything felt!
We spent a day driving up the coast, checked in to the World’s Cutest Cabin and then spent a few days eating crazy-hot hot wings, drinking Lost Coast brew (if you see their Tangerine Wheat beer — drink it immediately!), and meandering up and down North Coast beaches hand in hand being super sappy. Did you just barf a little? I know, that was pretty sickening, but it was quite blissful actually. And I have the same hopes for this birthday vacation!
