While tightly scheduled getaways have their place, this post is focused on those trips that let you be in that placed you’ve flown across the world to visit.

        Our New Year Weekend in Bend, Oregon

        There’s something about being around people that care to ring in the New Year. This year, I was glad to be welcoming in 2018 in Bend, Oregon with my boyfriends family. For three days, we were able to spend some time in the hidden gem of Oregon, and one of my personal favorites. From hiking in the snow, to ice skating in the Pavilion, we spent three days enjoying quality time to reflect on 2017 and look forward to what the New Year has to bring.

        My Boyfriend and His Girl Friends

        First of all, I wish that this was something I wouldn’t wrack my brain thinking about, but I do, and therefore, this spew of words you’re reading is a result.
