My birthday was last month. I may have delayed this post because now I have officially moved into the 30's, and I have been a teensy bit annoyed at this fact. Whatever the reason for the delay, I thought I would share some of the highlights of my birthday weekend.
We went to Manzanita and stayed at Nehalem Bay State Park in a yurt. Andy had never stayed in a yurt, and I'm not sure why. It's kind of strange since before I met him, I stayed in them multiple times during the year. I guess since he is so darn good and setting up a tent and campsite, I no longer needed the idiot proof camping experience that a yurt offers. Anyway, when I made reservaI didn't want to deal with the potential wind and rain when I made reservations, so we stayed in a yurt.
We had a relaxed weekend sitting on the dunes, building sandcastles, and walking through the amazing coastal forests nearby. The final book in the Twilight series, Breaking Dawn, came to the door just before we left Saturday. I got to sit around and read my book for two whole days, listening to the surf and the wind in the trees. It was perfect.
Usually I'm ready to leave the coast after a few days, but I had such a good, relaxing time, that I wanted to stay longer. I'm already trying to plan a way to go stay another night soon. I had the best birthday I have had in a very long time thanks to my amazing, supportive husband and my sweet daughter.
