Yes I'm in desperate need of just that. Somewhere that I can forget about the craziness of life here at home for just a moment. Somewhere that I can gain clarity and just relax. Things have gotten wild and they are about to get crazier. (still working on that post)

My husband is amazing. He sees that need. He's sending me away. A trip that was supposed to be for the two of us. A trip that was supposed to mark our 12th anniversary, a trip that was supposed to mark his 32nd birthday. Due to unforeseen circumstances leaving the children twice in a short time wasn't something we wanted to do. He's still sending me. I love him.

In 24 hours I'll be in Oregon with my peeps. Peeps that bless my heart and will refresh this weary soul. My hubs will be here to maintain the house and hang with the kids. Also desperately needed.

I'll be hanging with these gals.

Meeting sweet baby Alayna for the first time. I'll get to chill with these kids

at their house and go out with their mama.

This mama will join us.

If that wasn't enough I found out late last night (thank you facebook status updates!) that THIS cool chick, my sister from another mother is going to be in Ptown the SAME time I am! We shall meet. Yes we shall. So excited!!

To top it off my dad is getting married in June. Aren't they cute? Brenda has been amazing. She's bent over backwards to get to know us, to love on our kids, and to make us feel apart of their new life together. We've talked for hours, she's beat me numerous times at facebook scrabble, we email, we love her. We've also never met. She'll be in town the same time. We'll meet. Can't wait.

FUN! It's good to get away every now and then - especially for some girl bonding time.
And - how wonderful you get to meet your dad's fiancee!
Have FUN! And give Leul a big smooch for us! :)

Oh... I'm so glad you get to go. Sounds like the Lord really worked out some awesome details. I pray that you have a fantastic time and be sure to catch up on some much needed rest.

Give Sarah a hug for me! : )
