Anyway, since I obviously have like 900 things to do before this trip -- which technically is a trip for Garrett's Birthday (even though his actual birthday is not until May) -- I thought I would post a few snapshots of the first birthday trip we ever took together up to Humboldt County way back when we were just babies in love. I think I may have washed my face and brushed my teeth first thing every morning on that trip. Ok, I probably wasn't that crazy, but when I look at these pictures I just remember how excitedly new everything felt!
We spent a day driving up the coast, checked in to the World's Cutest Cabin and then spent a few days eating crazy-hot hot wings, drinking Lost Coast brew (if you see their Tangerine Wheat beer -- drink it immediately!), and meandering up and down North Coast beaches hand in hand being super sappy. Did you just barf a little? I know, that was pretty sickening, but it was quite blissful actually. And I have the same hopes for this birthday vacation!
