Given that I really need ocean right now, maybe I try to convince the Husband to take a day trip for our anniversary next weekend. Monterey isn't that far away...
Leave a comment on my 1/6/14 post by Midnight PST, Monday 1/20/14.
We'll draw the winner's name out of a hat on Tuesday, 1/21/14.
The prize: 1 skein of Socks That Rock Lightweight in Fleur de couleur.
