the oregon coast, and reminiscing

Jun 16, 2010 | Life in Progress

we took a much needed spontaneous trip to the oregon coast – just me, john, and our doggie bella. it’s june but you’d never know it with our fleece hats, scarves, raincoats. it’s always like this in oregon. you can’t really count on summer arriving until july (but it’s seriously the most perfect 3 months when it does finally arrive). the weather lately is sort of driving me a little insane, all this rain and cold. on the rare occasion that the sun does come out, we’re all flocking out into the wide open spaces, soaking it up like a precious fleeting moment.


have i mentioned lately how much i’m digging my husband lately? just this morning we were reminiscing about our first time venturing out here to the or coast together. it was over 10 years ago. we were young, had just moved from FL to OR together after only knowing one another a few weeks (we fell in love quickly). after we settled into our first apt in portland, we came out to the coast to check things out. we were completely enamored with the scenery (so much different than the FL beaches!), with the wide open spaces, with how unpopulated it was.

so yes, we love the oregon coast. it holds some serious magic. and i love reminiscing with john. we’re in that space these days where we’re reviewing the last 11 years together as we prepare for a whole new life with baby. i can’t believe we waited this long to start a family but i’m glad we had all those years to grow up together, too. i am feeling incredibly blessed inside this life.

Sending much love,
