Vacation Madness

I have had two weeks of relaxation, laughter, and alcohol. I'm so relaxed I resemble a wet noodle.

We stayed at a beautiful hotel called The Nines in Portland and I would live there if it was only more affordable. The architecture was stunning as the main level opened into a hollowed out building, with a glass ceiling. The hotel rooms looked onto this well designed great room and restaurant, and in the wee hours of the morning a couple gentlemen may or may not have been seen mooning onlookers below.

I am so excited to be back and blogging again as I was starting to miss you all! I fell in love with a french design magazine while away and I can't wait to show you some of the scrumptious architecture in it this coming week.

I would like to send out a special thank to my incredible cousin Anya and her husband Will for being the best travel companions we could ask for! xx

I also had the amazing fortune to meet with Natalie and her husband Chris and they were just the nicest people you could meet! We were overwhelmed by their hospitality. There is something so special about the friendships you meet in adoption. You never have to explain yourself because they already understand.

We also just returned from camping with our friends Tim and Rachelle and their 18month old doll face and had a ton of fun in the sun! We had amazing company on all our vacations. We were very blessed.

I hope you are all enjoying the fabulous summer,and I have to give a congrats to the five families we know of that received their referrals for children this month! Make that a congratulations to all of us!!

Jessa Now #44 on The List!! xx

    How is your sun burn doing? I hope it didn't get worse!!
