We're going on vacation for a couple weeks at Holden Village, one of my favorite places on earth. Sometimes I like to call it the Leftest Outpost of the Lutheran Church. It's a retreat center and intentional Christian community in the Cascade mountains in Washington state. It's an old copper mining town and there are no roads that go there, you have to take a 3 hour boat ride up Lake Chelan, which in and of itself is a religious experience. In the village there is an arts building complete with floor looms and a pottery studio, an ice cream shop, a book store, a pool hall (with a three lane set-your-own-pins bowling alley), and a hike haus stocked with back country gear. The food (including all the bread) is made from scratch daily and is comprised of as much local, organic produce as possible. Worship every night is creative and inspiring...always something different. To top it off, the kids go to "Narnia" every morning where the staff has lots of kid stuff for them to do.
I believe I might just get to know my husband again...we barely see each other at home and he's about the hottest nice-guy you've ever seen. Seriously.
See you in a few weeks.
