A Dream-Come-True Kind Of Trip
My sweetheart and I are leaving town very early this morning. We are on our way to a sweet, little village on the eastern slopes of the Washington State Cascade Mountains. This is a dream come true for me – something I have hoped to do but never thought it would be this year. Or any year soon. God provided in a way we can still hardly believe and we know it’s a special gift from Him to us. My cousin and her hubby are going, too. This is something we four have talked about – now it’s for real!
Leavenworth, Washington is a small Bavarian-style village that attracts thousands of people each year. There are festivals and activities throughout the year. We hope this will be the first of many visits to join the fun. You can read more about our destination here. We have tickets to a harp and vocal Christmas concert with Bronn and Katherine Journey. Bronn is an acclaimed harpist whose music I have loved for several years. And we hope to take a sleigh ride, if there is enough snow, and enjoy the shops and dining and all the sights and sounds of this little town.
We won’t be gone long and when I return I will tell you all about it! Oh, there will be so much to tell.
