Castaway

I've been kind of MIA from the blog scene lately. Work has been busy, and a lot has been going on in our lives, in general. Which, of course, means many great blog posts are currently on back order.

However, they're just going to have to stay there for a little while longer, because Brad and I are leaving today for a much needed mini-vacation!

Promptly at 4:00 this afternoon, we are heading to the beach! But not just any beach. We're making our way to an island! We'll be heading due-east to the outer banks of North Carolina, to hop on a ferry, and enjoy 4 glorious, relaxing, intimate days together on Ocracoke Island, lounging on the beach and getting kissed by the sun as we leisurely read books by the shore. We haven't had any alone time away since our honeymoon, over four years ago, and we're totally ready!

It's kind of a celebration of sorts. We've made it this far, through job stresses, personal struggles, three different summers with "roommates," and we still love each other. I guess it'll be much like an anniversary trip, only this is "just because we deserve it" trip. Well, and it's a little celebration of some changes in our future, but those are other blog posts altogether. (Before you even go there, no, we are not pregnant.)

Anyway, I'll be MIA for a little longer. We'll be being beach bums on and island and loving it.

Stay tuned for recaps next week, of course accompanied by tons of pictures. Oh, and maybe I'll find time to post about everything else that's been going on, too. We'll see how I'm feeling after I've been castaway.
