Recently we took a trip up to the Lake Quinault Lodge in Olympic National Park, Washington. The end of December marked one year of us "being awesome together," as I like to say, and we figured a celebratory adventure was in order. We had stopped by the lodge on an Olympic Coast backpacking trip last spring and were enchanted by the rustic beauty and history of the lodge. We talked of returning and this seemed like the perfect excuse.
Our weekend consisted of reading and lounging in front of the fire place in the expansive lobby, (I read a book and a half!) rainy walks with cameras in hand, lots of naps and cuddling, champagne, and a beautiful drive around the lake. It was a quiet, indulgent, beautiful way to celebrate this milestone in our life together.
