Shut the Meash Up

No reception on the coast of Cali!

We have a lot of updates and love stories and pictures but very few chances to post.
And I have no service again! We’ve been driving around with my parents the past few days and we’ll hit a town with cell service every once in a while.
We’ll try to go somewhere with wifi soon to update!

Stay lovin!

On the road again!!!

We said our goodbyes this morning to Ashley’s family in Portland and headed to the coast. It was bitter sweet to leave them. It’s been such a nice few weeks with all them. I feel so welcomed into the family, and I love each of them so much :) I’m so grateful that we have such a supportive and loving family on Ashley’s side. Now on to meet up with my parents in California! Yay!

We took a pit stop to tour the Tillamook Cheese Factory and have some Tillamook ice cream! Yeaaaah buddy! Then we said hello to Sparky the Wish Guardian in Lincoln City. Now, we’re going down the coast on highway 101!

“The truth is that the more intimately you know someone, the more clearly you’ll see their flaws. That’s just the way it is. This is why marriages fail, why children are abandoned, why friendships don’t last. You might think you love someone until you see the way they act when they’re out of money or under pressure or hungry, for goodness’ sake. Love is something different. Love is choosing to serve someone and be with someone in spite of their filthy heart. Love is patient and kind, love is deliberate. Love is hard. Love is pain and sacrifice, it’s seeing the darkness in another person and defying the impulse to jump ship.”

What is your definition of love, Michael?

So we went to this adorable little town called Silverton that I used to haunt as a teen to meet my bio dad, and on the way out we stopped for gas. The attendant that pumped our gas (yep, Oregon is one of two states in the USA that still has other people pump your gas for you) was a sweet spirited guy named Michael. He asked about our window paint and I asked him if he might tell us his definition of love.

"That’s a tough question," he proclaimed.

Finally he said, “I guess I’m not really sure. But man, woman, whether you are a man or woman it doesn’t matter. Love is love.”

Then he grinned and added. “Gay marriage is legal here in Oregon now, you know!”

We yelled, “We know!” And I added, “Isn’t it awesome?”

Then we air fived/crazy waved or something that sparkled and drove off into the rainbows while he went to help the next customer.

Thanks Mike!

“if you had a friend who spoke to you in the same way you sometimes speak to yourself, how long would you allow that person to be your friend?”

Family times! :)))) ❤️ explodes! My favorite is the last one where my nephew Spencer and my niece Audrey are mean muggin’ me with their stuffed animals. But also my favorite is the first one where my niece Anya made Malibeaux dip her 100 times in a row.

Spending time with my nieces and nephew and the family I wish I could see more. We made egg rolls and watched their recital video and of course… So… Much… Giggling!!! I miss these guys! They love Malibeaux and her amazing dance moves! She is so perfect with them… Sigh of happy… Great day!
