I am very fortunate to have relatives who live in Washington State. I love Washington. We honeymooned in Washington. I would live there if I could. But since God has other plans for our family right now (one can always dream about someday, right?!), having relatives there is the next best thing since it gives us the excuse to visit regularly. J Michelle and I were there in September for my grandfather's memorial service. Our time there was way too short, but thankfully we were able to spend an couple of hours one afternoon here, one of my very favorite spots in the world. We stopped. We rested. We breathed. And our souls were refreshed.
