Slimy Moss

Things are finally settling down a bit after a very hectic week.  I LOVE my new job!  It is going very well so far.  Some parts of it are definitely going to take some getting used to, but overall it is interesting, challenging, and enjoyable. 

We had company visiting from NC this past week/weekend.  Ben's best friend since childhood and his girlfriend came to hang out and check out Portland.  On Sunday, we spent the day at the coast.  We found a great little spot on the beach to hang out and watch the sunset.  While we were there, our friends got engaged!  It was a very beautiful and special day (and eventful - considering the engagement and the fact that Ben came very close to being swept away by a spout wave - he drives me insane by getting very close to the edge every time we are on a hike or near any sort of cliff.  I hope he learned his lesson).  We did a lot of laughing, eating, and shopping while they were here.  It was so much fun! 

Here are some pictures from the past few days:

Ready for a day on the town!

I hope you all are having a beautiful week!
