This morning on my pillow was an envelope, and as Mike was still asleep I took it out in the other room and opened it. Inside was an invitation for a trip to the coast! It is an anniversary gift and we will be going to the Newport Seafood and Wine Festival, and stay overnight at a Bed & Breakfast on the beach! I am totally surprised, and now have to see if my friend Lisa can animal sit while we are gone. 16 years with this wonderful man and he still can surprise me when I least expect it. It will be nice to get away, and our weary muscles can handle the break too. The property is finally starting to emerge from all the wreckage, and today we have a lot of wind, so I am really holding my breath that nothing else happens to us, our neighbors and the 9,000 people this last storm affected. Some people in the low hills are still without power! And it has been over a week since the storm hit us. Anyway, the seafood at the coast is scrumptious and I can't wait till we get there. He is such a love, I am glad I found him through such a fluke!
