I kidnapped IZ today for a quick trip to Cannon Beach. We usually try to head out there before the holiday for a little Christmas shopping–but with the 4th Sunday service this year, we didn’t make it. When today dawned a lovely sunny, promised 50 degrees: it seemed like the perfect opportunity to make up for our missed trip.


The Ocean always brings a new sense of calm and focus.



A mocha at Insomnia Coffee. They make their own whipping cream: chocolate flavored for mochas. YUM.
