I hope you got to see my tribute to the past five years I've spent with D in this post. Now, I'll show you pictures from our wonderful trip to Orcas Island, WA, where we spent our five-year anniversary!
The sunset was amazing each and every night. It gave us the most beautiful colors, and we literally stared at it for minutes at a time, entranced. You could see so many stars in the sky when the sun finally fell.
I love Steven Smith tea for many reasons, but this season, they gave me another: their seasonal winter tea, Silent Night, is absolutely lovely, and a great way to end the evening. I grabbed some at a bookstore on the island, and I drank it every night we were there.
We had so much fun together the entire weekend. Also: check out this awesome cabin!
A view of the water from a different location on the island from where we stayed. The island is small enough that we could explore a different part of it each day to our heart's content. This was in the small "town" of Olga.
The cabin we stayed in had some wonderful touches, such as this Christmas/holiday decoration. Nothing was over-the-top or splashy, but everything in the cabin made our stay feel comfortable. We did not want to leave.
We cherished the time we got to spend together; it's rare to have that much time off with each other, and we were reminded just how much we love being with the other person.
