my first whisking


i was awakened friday morning to, "rachel, put your sundress in a bag - we're going to the beach!"

what!?

naturally, i flung off the covers and as i hastily brushed my teeth, learned that childcare had been arranged, work had been taken off, and we were really spending the day/night at the beach... just us... and i was totally surprised! it was my first whisking!

the short drive to wrightsville beach was fragrant with the honeysuckle growing up alongside the highway... the room was ocean view, and the weather was glorious. we walked for miles and miles, just being together, ate fish and chips, & sat on the lifeguard tower and watched a full moon rise over the ocean, spilling it's orange light toward us. we saw little fish trapped in tide pools skim the surface and scatter at our feet, and it was perfect. a perfect 24 hours.

this summer will be our 15th anniversary. and you know what? i still choose curtis. he is still the guy i want to be with - even though some days i feel like stabbing him with a spoon. :) he is one of God's many good gifts to me. i love him.

and it turns out i love being whisked away to the beach. feel free to do it more often, honey.... :)

Yay for whiskings! I can't handle them myself ... I'm too much of a type A ... but they SOUND lovely!

I wish Curtis would wake me up and say, "jd, put your fishing gear in the car!" and we'd head out for some mad surf fishing!

I could probably handle whisking, even if it did involve fishing!

If you were an egg it would be your last whisking...
