This morning I shared on my Facebook account photos taken nine years ago for Throw Back Thursday. These particular photos are from my first visit to Oregon in which I stayed for about two weeks (if memory serves me right). Funny enough, a year from when these photos were taken, is when we got married! It wasn’t planned that way either. Oregon hasn’t changed too much in nine years but we certainly have!
The photos above feature Justin and I at several locations. One is the Settlemier House ( a Victorian Mansion) in Woodburn, Oregon & the other Silver Falls near Silverton Oregon. I haven’t been to either place since but would love to revisit.
Another location that I hold near and dear that we visited during this time together is the Newport Bay restaurant on the Riverplace Marina. We have pegged it as the place were we had our real first date in Oregon. I still remember the delicious meal, dimly candle lit atmosphere, soft music, and the view of the annual Christmas Ships floating by. It was a magical evening with my dear love and best friend.
I’m often sharing lots more of myself on my social media channel but lacking that here. I’m hoping to change that starting now.
