Why I Love Oregon

Before I met my boyfriend (which sounds like a silly word to my ears because he is way more than that to me) I thought I was an outdoorsy kind of girl. I mean I've been camping and hiking before. But I was not really "outdoorsy" at all. Fast forward a year and half later and I find myself hiking in the rain and cold of Oregon in March. But it is beautiful in it's own way. Now this California girl loves it here and doesn't even mind a lil' rain.

Weekends Go By So Fast

Time flies by the older I get. I appreciate my weekends but they end so quickly. Portland is pretty much unchanged as far as weather is concerned. Rain mixed with snow and gray skies. Can you tell this California girl is aching for some blue sky and warmth? But despite it all we are making the best of the outdoors with a little trek to Tillamook National Forest last weekend. I went hiking in the snow covered woods until it threatened to make it impossible to drive out. It was quiet and peaceful. My mind truly quiet for once.

Birthday Weekend

Last weekend was my 27th birthday - eek-- when did that happen!!!! Time really is flying by. After getting a yummy dinner made for me and flowers from my BF we headed to the coast on the weekend in Oregon. It all went by too fast.
