Profusion of Pink


Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.

I don't recall a time that I've ever been so thrilled on a Monday morning, EVER! I look at our little countdown clock, and with a smirk on my face think, "In two days, I will be FREE!". Free for a total of 11 days, free to do what I want, when I want. The anticipation of a vacation is very liberating! I'm pretty excited about flying in a plane again too, for those of you who don't know, it will only be my second time. The first being when we went to Las Vegas in October for my birthday. This will be my first time going to California, and I think that we've picked a fabulous location for our debut. I can't wait to sleep under the stars at night, and awaken in the morning to the fragrance of fog bouncing through the forest. Sleeping in the woods is one of my most favorite things to's been so long it seems.

Sleeping in the woods aside, I have planned some wonderful activities for us to do while in Big Sur. The weather forecast seems pretty agreeable as well, I checked last night and according to the 10 day forecast we're looking at highs of 69 with lows of 47, not too bad. Since being in the mountains, I've become pretty spoiled so those temperatures are right up my alley..........I hate sweating, unless I'm exerting myself. For someone who hates sweating, I lived in Florida waaaaaay too long! Anyways, so yeah a lot of fun, exciting, and picturesque things to do and laptop is coming with me since I feel like 4 memory cards will not be enough to accommodate the substantial amount of photos I plan to take. And plus, one or two of the campsites have wi-fi!!!!!! How crazy is that?!?!? I'm sure that I'll be dying to blog about our adventures at some point....I can't very well leave you hanging for 11 days, now can I?!?!?


So far, I've only had 11 requests to plant trees with the Nature Conservancy. My intention is to match the total request, each request being $1.00, right now the total donation would be 22 trees. If you have yet to leave a comment on "Where's Your Green?!", you may do so now. I don't plan to donate until tomorrow evening, so there is still time!!
