if you must go, then go.

"I am dwarfed by thou painted maple."
-A midsummer night's dream

My favorite line, by far.

Ohio to Oregon- It's been an amazing month of laughs, stories, eating, fires, gardening, music and being a FAMILY.

German food. Suasage and suasage and more sausage. A bed of sauerkraut with a side of spaetzle please.

An easy stroll, pushed by a slight wind in the right direction, landed us in front of a romantic conundrum written by the Bard of bards.  Sit back and enjoy the show, but please don't go- 31 hours away that is.

I believe in the Lord's will. I believe in His beautiful, perfect plan.  I'm excited, don't you worry these are tears of joy.  Before you go, please, let me send you with just one more thing. {A hug and a kiss don't count because those aren't debatable} but rather a small prayer that has shaken the millenniums':

For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us.
-Ephesians 3:14-20

Now get. go. be gone my sister and brother.  My love will be chasing you...

{"Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened."} ...and Dr. Seuss of course.
