Last month, in celebration of my husband’s 51st birthday, we enjoyed a four day escape to our state’s gorgeous coast. The Fort Bragg~Mendocino area is about a four hour drive from our home, and holds a special place in our collective heart. We spent many random long weekends and holidays in this splendid place prior to our wedding nearly seven years ago. We really haven’t had a chance to visit as much as we used to in the last few years-illness, our home, responsibilities, expenses and other needs have stood in the way of wants. Such is life. But that is what made this time away all the more special.
This amazing time together was the perfect way to celebrate my husband’s next trip around the sun~a good and loving man who deserves everything he dreams of. This time with him also returned me to a fundamental truth~travel, this earth, beauty and love, all of it reminds me that I am meant to be here. Alive, happy and aware.
Have a gorgeous week.
