Time is drawing near to my final day here in the PNW. This week has been bittersweet as I quickly approach to the day I’ll be home for the holidays and thereafter, but that also means I’m saying my good-byes to so many who mean so much. This morning I said good-bye to a group of women who came into my life right when I needed it. You might remember this post about my thoughts on leaving, and meeting this group of women at a mommy workout group I was a part of 3 days a week for over a year. Tomorrow is my last day at work. A place I’ve been a part of for over two years. It wasn’t the stimulating career I’d envisioned, but it has provided me with the flexibility and freedom to be a mom during the day and explore my creative ventures even further, not to mention brought some special friends into my life…and for those reasons I am forever grateful for my time spent there.
This weekend brings so.many.excitingggg plans of celebrating with friends! But before I overshare the plans to come, let’s back track to some plans we did. Today’s #8in8 was our trip to a family-owned tree farm called Hunter’s down the street from us. In the Fall they have a fun pumpkin patch similar to the one we’ve visited here, but I never actually visited their farm, until I heard about their u-cut Christmas tree farm! Don’t judge me on my seemingly ‘clueless’ state of mind, but…I’ve never actually know they had places you go and CUT THE TREE YO’ SELF! I thought that was just from movies in the 80s! 🙂 I’ve always wanted to go and just walk the rows of towering Douglas Furs and spruce trees. And this place was too adorable to pass up on my 8 things I want to do before leaving.
