Never in my life have I been so ready for vacation! Not even for the honeymoon. Chris and I have been working our butts off and definitely deserve this little get away that we have planned. We're flying out on Friday to Seattle for 5 days then off to Nashville for 5 days! Every time I think about this trip I get giddy and start counting down the hours to departure.

Stay tuned though, I am going to do my best to blog everyday about our adventure with pictures! See you in Seattle!
