A close friend of mine came to visit this week from Michigan. It was great playing tour guide around the beautiful Great Northwest. Often times we get caught up in our everyday lives that we forget just how gorgeous this part of the country is! Don'tget me wrong, I love having friends visit, but if I can be honest, after 3 days I'm exhausted! I'm practically sleep walking. I've got my fingers crossed for an 8-hour nap this afternoon.
