Whidbey Island

On Saturday morning of our vacation we went through the storage unit and packing up the rest of our stuff then we spent the rest of the day relaxing.

Sunday was the really fun part: we went to Whidbey Island in the Puget Sound and I of course forgot my camera. I rode a ferry for the first time in my life. It was so cool. We spent the day with three other couples and another friend. We all went wine and cheese tasting. The girls went to a few little shops in Coupeville and the guys went to some sort of old military fort. Our friend headed home and the couples got together and enjoyed our wine purchases in the hot tub. Then we all headed home and I got to ride the ferry again!

A couple of weeks ago Ben and I were able to go on our first vacation together as husband and wife. It was also my first paid vacation ever!!! The first day we spent time with my family in southwest Washington State and we got to see our niece who is now a year old, a relatively smart one year old I might add. We also started organizing all the stuff we were bringing down. Sadly, this was somewhat of a working vacation because were finally going to finish moving our stuff down to Arizona.
The next day we drove up to Seattle in the moving truck and went to our friend's wedding. Shout out to the bride & groom! 10 years to the day that they had been together. I wish them all the best!

Spreading My Wings

Ok. So here it goes, my first blog entry. I had been contemplating writing a travel blog for quite some time and now that I have a trip to write about I am going to give it a go. This blog will primarily be a travel log of vacations, day trips, and my eventual plans to travel Europe and the rest of the Globe with my husband, Ben. However, since our income and amount of vacation time built up won't allow for much of the week-long or more variety of traveling I will have to spice it up with other entires. I'll probably include my hobbies such as quilting, scrap booking, reading, cooking and the like. I may also include a bit of an exercise log, not to be overly boastful or bore you, but as a motivational and accountability tool for myself. Hopefully this can also be a tool to keep our far away friends and family aware of the goings on in our lives, instead of having to do the annual Xmas letter.
