Friends, things have been insane over here! I have been working towards a looming deadline for my book- 1 week left! I am not sure I have worked this hard - EVER- we are talking around the clock kind of work. This insane schedule has coincided with my wedding anniversary and this weekend my husband not only surprised me with a brand new bike (something I have been talking about for months) but he also convinced me to steal away with him for a leisurly afternoon spent eating and strolling around our favorite marina. Oh how wonderful it was to forget about deadlines, to celebrate six years of marriage, reflecting on memories, enjoying good food, watching boats sail in and out, dreaming up stories of where we would sail and what we would name our boat, and just finding escape for a moment in time.
