A Mini Vacation

Sorry for the grainy iPod pics - forgot my camera

I just got back from this. And it was wonderful!

This was the first time Ben and I have been away by ourselves in 3 years, and it was very much needed. Nana kept the kiddos while we went and recharged. I feel so much better. My mind is clear and I am so much more relaxed.

On Saturday we decided to go walk around and visit all the shops we've never gotten to before. So we parked at one end and walked up and down the streets looking at all the different little places. I found a nice little health food store and I am still kicking myself for not buying the raw milk I saw. I have still yet to taste raw milk.

One of the shops was a big antique store and I found this beautiful, gorgeous, well used and loved hutch/work space.

I wish I had a place to put it (and that it wasn't so expensive) because I would have snatched it up right then... And gotten it into the car... somehow. It was so beautiful and all the dings and scratches made me wonder what its story is.

I've enjoyed being away from the internet and electronics so much for the past few days that I think I will keep avoiding them for awhile. It's good for my brain. :)

Happy Monday,

ooh it even has the flour bins! I love hutches too. Glad you guys had a nice vacation - you deserve it!

Sometimes a little mini break is just what you need to get going again.

Hooray for the two of you getting away!!! I'm sure the kids enjoyed their stay as well. Yes, you are so right that avoiding the internet and electronics makes a big difference, doesn't it? Happy you had a wonderful time.

That is a great hutch. I bet it was an arm and a leg. Morro Bay looks fantastic. So pretty. I am so glad you guys got to get away for a bit. Maybe we will get away next year. :)

It must have been so nice to get away. I bet the boys had a good time and I bet you missed them.

You must live nearby me to head to Morro Bay for a quick getaway :) We live only about 20 min from there.

It takes us about 2 hours to get to Morro Bay - we're in the bottom of the San Joaquin Valley.

I grew up in the San Joaquin valley! A little town called Ripon? Small world!
