We’d been talking about going to Hawaii early in 2020 for my 40th and Doc’s 50th but literally the day before we booked, my work lost a huge client. Layoffs ensued (I’m still employed) (for now) and we both thought it might be wiser to hold on to that trip cash for an uncertain future.

But we wanted to go somewhere in February that had color, so we took a long weekend and headed to Moab. We only got one sunny day but the desert never disappoints:

Plus, I found the local quilt shop and got some souvenirs–which is also the plan for when we make Hawaii happen.
