Matt and I had the most amazing once in a lifetime experience this weekend. When Matt was here in February and we did the Red Wine and Chocolate tour in Prosser, the owners of Coyote Canyon Winery invited us to their vineyard for an Easter Sunday sunrise service, where they have three giant crosses. We spent Saturday night in Prosser so we could make it to the vineyard by 6am Easter Sunday. There was a small, intimate group, a fire, and a lovely Easter Sunday service with Bible readings, songs, and bread and wine – Tres Cruces wine – very fitting for the occasion. The view was breathtaking and everyone was so welcoming and loving. It’s something Matt and I will never forget and are so appreciative of the opportunity.
We then spent the rest of Easter Sunday at mom’s and had the whole family over for lunch and an Easter egg hunt.
We also spent time with our good friends Sara and Stephen. They came over for steaks and wine and good fun and laughter.
I just hate it when we have to say good-bye. I leave the airport in tears and spend the rest of my day at work feeling so sad. It’s a crazy emotional roller coaster. One day you’re full of smiles and laughter and holding hands, then the next day your heart is melting and the tears are flowing. Each time I tell myself, ‘this time I won’t cry’ and it never works. The emotions and the sadness never go away and saying good-bye never gets easier. The next time we will see each other is Memorial weekend; that’s a long time from now.
