home sweet home.

I got to visit my family last weekend and I had the best time! I forget how much I miss them sometimes with the daily grind of life. And I forget how much distance is between us, and that makes me sad 😔, but also extremely thankful for the times we get to be together. This time we went to the Oregon coast & stayed at the best golf resort! It’s called Salishan Spa & Golf Resort. They have their own private beach for their residents; we loved it!

And the food…. so delicious!! We had brunch every day in the sun room at Salishan & before I left Oregon, I got to go to Jim & Patty’s Coffee. If you ever have a chance to go, I’d recommend the “Friggin Freemont” and the huckleberry coffee cake. I mean…!

Lincoln City is great & it’s really close to Newport, where you can go visit the Aquarium & Rogue Ales Brewery! Just in between the two coastal cities is Depot Bay, where you can whale watch & get salt water taffy 😊.

I’m from a big family. Of all girls. 😬 A couple years back we started making a point of going out to get coffee together, just us. No husbands, no kids. Just the 6 of us ☺️. It’s always special to me and I’m so glad we started doing it!

On our way back home to Portland, we stopped by the Tillamook Cheese Factory. So fun! You get to see how their legendary cheddar cheese is made and can also get some amazing ice cream. Like this beauty:

My mom’s yard is beautiful. I’m struggling to keep my two succulents alive & here she is with blooming hydrangeas, rose bushes, & seriously incredible “chicken & hens” succulents. I guess you could argue that she has it easier due to the Oregon climate, but I’m betting she has a green thumb…

 It was so hard to come back, but I did miss my babe & my pup, so it was very bittersweet. Iced coffee soothed the pain a bit, though 😉

Hope you all enjoy the last bit of your weekend! Cherish your family, your loved ones, any one you care about when you’re with them. It’s what truly matters ♥
