i'm going back

Sunday, October 19, 2014

Okay... Sorry to skip back a couple of months, but I can't seem to go forward until I explain what has happened in my life.
You guessed it.  I fell in love and tied the knot.  
And we did it the way that felt completley right.  We eloped to the King County court house in Seattle, Washington.  For the first time in my life, (I know!  That's a big statement.) I felt true to myself.

08.04.14 The day I said "I do" to this man forever.  

We had two friends for our witnesses.  A judge that was spiritual and lovely.  And ourselves.  
It truly couldn't have been more perfect and more real.  
We told the children, our parents, our siblings and some of our closest friends before we left.  
Desolation Sound, B.C.  
Of course there was knitting.  (Socks from previous post.)
Glacial Valley, Desolation Sound, B.C. 
Hood Canal, Washington
Dinner.  Hood Canal, Washington.
Olympic National Park
Lake Crescent Lodge, Olympic National Park and Forest

Not until you let go of your past can you get on with your future.
I now believe that with all my heart and soul.

  41. What a journey life has taken for you and I couldn't be happier. Your husband looks to have a kind heart, I genuinely feel it shows in the eyes - so that makes him a perfect match for you. x
