Great Expectations

A beginning is only the start of a journey to another beginning.

Ahhh to get away! The Old Man and I got to and it was wonderful, amazing, and totally needed. We headed south to Costanoa and spent a day and a night completely relaxed. We got massages, sat in the hot tub, we lay around in our bathrobes (really fun and one of my most favorite things to do)!

I can't say enough about this place. The food was delicious, organic, and amazingly fresh. There was interesting driftwood art and beautiful, native gardens.

Outdoor showers and fireplaces and other relaxing places scattered about.

The Old Man's mother stayed with Babou and LocoO so we were dog and toddler-less and that was lovely as well. It felt so good to let the relaxation sink in and not have to hop up to attend to this or that. Just lovely.

And to what occasion owed this celebration retreat? The Old Man's Father's Day present: that he is going to be a father again! We are happily expecting the birth of our second child late next February. Yes, that means I am pregnant!
