To Washington or Bust

Mount Rainier, my favorite.

Hi all. :)

Today will be spent packing. Today will be spent shaking out my already-present nerves about leaving this state on three flights to Washington. Green Bay to Minneapolis to Billings to Seattle/Tacoma....and three flights back....Seattle/Tacoma to San Jose to Minneapolis to Green Bay. Today will be spent reassuring my himalayan kittens I love 'em and letting them know we hired cat sitters; no lie, a fellow police officer and her children are going to be stopping by from time to time to ward off any kitty blues.

We are going to be visiting Colin's family. Only his momma and step-dad know...shh...not his 3 brothers or nieces and nephew! Everyone is getting together at his mom's house, but we are still trying to figure out how to surprise them. Any suggestions??

If you live in WA, check out his family's bakery A Taste of Eden in Chehalis: . They always have goodies at farmer's markets as well. I'm pretty sure they said they are going to be at the Puyallup Fair next week.

Please pray for safe flights--we had a rickety one with loads of turbulence last time we flew, and I'm trying to scare away my anxiety for these ones.

Along with sharing tons of pictures from Washington upon my return, Colin and I have exciting news to share with everybody. No, not pregnancy news. However, here is a clue:

Sometimes on the way to the dream, you get lost and find a better one.

Blessings and Grace,
