Back in May Kurtis moved up to the Bay Area for work. I visited him last month because first, I missed him, and second, I needed a break from work. I was up there for ten days and let me tell you, it was a little hard at first realizing that I didn't have anything that I had to do. I wasn't stressed for time, adhering to schedules or what someone else wanted, and I definitely enjoyed it.
While I was up there, Kurtis and I got to do a little exploring. We had to pack our adventures into only a couple days since Kurtis couldn't really take any time off work other than two days, but we made it work and still had a good time.
One of the things we got to do was visit the Redwoods. Nature's cool, I tell ya. I used to love going on hikes and exploring forests growing up. For those of you that don't know, I wrote stories ALL THE TIME growing up. Writing has been one of my passions my whole life and the majority of my stories had forest scenes. I was so intrigued by forests as a kid--I felt they carried a lot of mystery and wonder about them--and even to this day I have such a tie to them (although still a total beach girl at heart). Walking around the Redwoods was interesting because I felt like a 6 year old girl again thinking of all of my stories and some of the parts that took place in forests. It was kind of fun for me!
Enough of my ramblings, here's the good stuff:
