Getting back into the swing of things

I've been away from my blog for a month and am still trying to get back into the swing of things.

our first selfies too - can you tell?

My husband and I took our first ever vacation just the 2 of
us. We spent a week of total togetherness and we can still stand to be around each other so I think that makes it a success.

We went to Portland, Spokane and Seattle. We visited relatives in Portland ad Spokane. Seattle was just for kicks.

Driving from Portland to Spokane we spent a little time at Multnomah Falls - the view was breathtaking. Actually everything around Portland was breathtaking! I was in awe of so many shades of green and the ferns growing wild (and healthy) all over the place.

We did not plan for nearly enough time in any one place but for this trip it was the best way.
Someday I would love to go back to Seattle for about 4 days and really get to look at few things in depth. I think I could spend 2 days just in Pike's Market!
Of course I will make a vacation journal as soon as things slow down a little. I got a start on it with this Portland page
The ferns for her hair represent the ferns growing wild all over the place. The few areas of rain are because it rained a little bit each day that we were there. The multi-colored background because overall it was just a colorful place. There were colorful areas of the city, colorful people (literally and figuratively), colorful plants, colorful landscapes - color everywhere. The 'thing' across the bottom is the tail end of a huge fresh salmon that Wade's aunt fixed for dinner the last night we spent there. It was wonderful.
Eventually I will get back to this journal and share Washington with you. Until then - thanks for stopping by.
