But real life hit. Cars needed to be fixed, root canals done, and unexpected school bills creeped up. The week of our tax appointment we were feeling financially defeated. After all, we moved home to save money yet we were turning it all over to school and dental bills. If we owed for taxes we would both be in tears. During our tax appointment our dear tax man looked at us and said, " What amount would you be happy with for a refund?" At the same time Trav and I both replied, " Not owing anything!" He smiled, gave us our amount, and our jaws dropped. This year's tax return was a gift from above no doubt. We would be able to pay off yet another medical bill, put money back into savings, and......go to Seattle!
So, at the end of the month we will be heading to Seattle, Vancouver, and maybe even Victoria for a fun filled vacation! Trav and I have learned these past 3 years that we LOVE traveling together. While it's usually to go see family, our trip to Colorado this past fall proved how much we love touring new cities and seeing what is out there. We have tons of sites we are planning to see....we may need another vacation when we come home just to rest up!
I can't wait for this time to be adventurous with my Trav. It's a perfect way to celebrate the end of this journey we have been on. Thank you Jesus for this wonderful gift and for our tax angel :-)
Here are some sites on our agenda.....
|Ah, she is a beauty!|
|This is #1 on Trav's list to see. He wants to watch the fish being thrown....and maybe go on a food tour!|
|Can't see Seattle and not go to the first Starbucks!|
|Sheraton Seattle where we will crash at the end of our busy days!|
|Up North is the tulip festival. We may have to pay a visit!|
|We are heading to Grouse Mountain in Vancouver to....ZIPLINE =)|
While we are facing fears of heights, we might as well cross the Capilano Suspension Bridge :)
Hurry up March 30....we're ready for some adventure!
