A couple friends joined me in planning a 40th birthday getaway for our good friend, Vivian.  We wanted to make the day extra special, and we knew we had to escape our normal life to make it happen. 

Well, turns out this charming town of Seabrook is just 2 hours away on the Washington coast.  It's a fairly new town with the cutest homes that must meet strict criteria in building and appearance...which makes them all just darling. We stayed in this adorable home.

We had lots of birthday fun planned  in the day and a half we were there with a super fun group of 9 ladies!

I traveled up with this crew (Carissa, Jen, Ashley). We couldn't wait to get away!

And sat out in the sun as soon as possible!

When the rest of  the crew arrived, we headed out to eat at the local pub.  

And then walked down to the (very windy) beach!  Gorgeous, but windy!

One of my favorite photos from the trip!

The sunset was gorgeous!

The next day we rented bikes and toured the town, played volleyball, and visited several homes having an open house that weekend (kind of like parade of homes). I love, loved seeing inside these charming (and $$$) houses!

Happy Happy Birthday Vivian!  Sure fun to celebrate you in such a fun place!

Why I {Blog}

My little blog is a family journal. I include things on here I want to remember years and years from now. So when I post a zillion is because I want to have it for my posterity. So please forgive the often posted-picture overload.

Currently I am trying to focus on my photography skills...reading, reading, reading, and taking pictures when I can. Then edit, read, read, read some more. I finally feel like I have a basic understanding of exposure...hooray! I updated my blog template so I can display larger photos because...aren't pictures better than anything I have to say anyway?

More about me here.
