This past week, we decided to do a last minute marriage retreat in Port Townsend. We stayed at the Mansera Castle, which is reportedly haunted. We got to take a stroll down the picturesque streets of downtown and tried some beer at the Port Townsend Brewery. We caught up with friends who were also on the retreat, and finally had the chance to come together and enjoy each others company on a mini vacation. The material they taught at the retreat to strengthen our marriage was on the book by Gary Chapman, called The Five Love Languages. I found it to be very helpful and made sense as to why it is so successful! If you haven't read it, I highly suggest you do!!
