This is one of my favorite traditions! (Becky-Debbie-Becky) A couple years into it we decided to make a set date every year, so that we didn’t have to go through all the hassle of trying to coordinate an actual weekend. This year we stayed in an adorable house right near downtown Olympia. We filled our days with Afternoon Tea, sunny walks, Christmas shopping in excellent small shops, buying too many books, talking, and eating great food. We even completed a scavenger hunt on the grounds of the state capital! As usual, these days were the perfect blend of adventure, friendship, and relaxing.
