early saturday morning, the baby SIL and i strapped ourselves in for a fourteen hour drive back up to seattle for a little getaway and some quality time to be with family. this has been the longest i have been away from home. i forgot just how beautiful washington is with the lush evergreen trees, the beautiful lakes, the unexpected sunshine, and of course the puget sound. hello seattle. this will also mark the longest i will be away from the mister. already dying a little on the inside. but back to the good stuff.
so far i have slept, had long bed time chats with the mother, ate great food, cuddled my little man (my dog), constant texts with the big man (the husband), scheduled "playdates" with great friends, and best of all, not cleaning one single dish. oh the joys of a dishwasher and parents who insist on doing everything for you.
