Ephesians 4:12

"A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken." Ephesians 4:12 NLT

Flashback Friday: We get to go to Oregon!

When I was growing up in Southern California my mom's parents moved to Southern Oregon.  It was there that I spent summer vacations until I was in Jr. High.  That's me (Beth) on the left.

This is the great hammock that they had in front of their house that overlooked the port in Port Orford, OR.

The house is now a vacation rental.  One day I want to vacation there again.

Dave and I have been super busy in these past 4 years and especially in the past 18 months.  We've seen a lot of changes and we've had a lot of transitions in our lives as a family and as a couple.

One thing that helps us to connect is our times that we can get away.  Times that allow us to just be Dave and Beth.

So we are getting away to Oregon!  There was a great deal with Southwest so we snatched up some cheap seats and we are making plans to get away.

Here are some of the websites that we used or are using for our getaway.  We're giving them to you because we think that all married couples should get away now and again to reconnect and remember who they are as a couple.  Sometimes it's hard to figure out where to start.  So here you go, some easy starting places.

Southwest Airlines usually has great deals and your bags fly free!

Travel Oregon is a fun site to visit to find out a variety of things to do and places to stay in Oregon.

Travel Portland is another site that I just found last night.  I was talking with Dave while I was making the plane reservations and he said that he wanted to take public transportation all around Portland. We wouldn't be renting a car this time.  This site has helped me find a lot of great places to go, to eat and to stay in the Portland area.

One last thought:  Marriage is hard work.
