Weekend Getaway: Pacific Beach

Weekend Getaway: Pacific Beach

For mother’s day this year (my second one ever!) I wanted to take our daughter Milly to the beach for the first time, so we planned a very last minute trip to the Washington coast with my parents. It was fast, but we had a […]

Brunch at Riverwalk Cafe

Brunch at Riverwalk Cafe

This weekend my husband and I celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary! We kept it simple and went to Chelan for brunch at Riverwalk Cafe. I’d never been and it did not disappoint. I loved the “order at the window and then go find your seat” […]

Trinity Gardens Lavender Farm

Trinity Gardens Lavender Farm

Did you know there’s a beautiful lavender farm in Quincy, WA? If you’re answer is no, then my response is I didn’t either. This is one of the reasons I love social media. I follow Burch Mountain BBQ on instagram, and they posted about Flower Fest, happening […]

Breakfast at O’Grady’s at Sleeping Lady Resort

Breakfast at O’Grady’s at Sleeping Lady Resort

I’m kind of a breakfast girl. I like dinner just fine, but when given the choice to go out for breakfast or dinner, I’ll usually choose breakfast. Our sixth anniversary last year was no exception. We decided to keep it pretty close to home, and […]

Weekend Getaway: Iron Springs Resort, Copalis Beach, WA

In 2017 at the end of June we took a long weekend and headed to the Washington coast for our babymoon (and also our 5th wedding anniversary). I’m so excited to share about this place here because we had such a great time! We stayed […]

Leavenworth Reindeer Farm

Leavenworth Reindeer Farm

Happy holiday season, PNW friends! If you’re familiar at all with Leavenworth in central Washington, you know that it’s a Bavarian village that turns into a full blown Christmas town during the holidays. It’s nothing short of magical. Just outside of town, there’s the Leavenworth […]

Dry Falls

Dry Falls

When I think of adventuring in Washington I often think of the mountains, or Puget Sound. I rarely think of Eastern Washington and the more desert-type landscape. One day, we felt like taking a day and driving east to cover some new ground. Originally I […]

Weekend Getaway: Walla Walla

Weekend Getaway: Walla Walla

At the end of April my husband and I had a weekend getaway in Walla Walla, WA. (Our first weekend away from the baby!) It was nothing short of amazing and full of great food and great wine. I’m already planning a girl’s weekend so […]

Camping at Alta Lake

Camping at Alta Lake

Camping is a PNW staple. I love camping near a body of water. The ocean, a lake, a river, a stream – I’ll take them all. I also like camping near a bathroom, I’m not going to lie. When we took our dogs camping a […]

Multnomah Falls

Multnomah Falls

What a gem. Multnomah Falls in Oregon is probably my favorite waterfall I’ve ever seen. (And keep in mind, I’ve been to Hawaii twice.) It is so unbelievably stunning, very accessible, and definitely worth the crowds. I’ve been a couple times, and would gladly go again. […]
