[Oregon] state of mind.

Hi there.  

Been a while, hasn't it?  We got back from Oregon late Wednesday night, but the mellow, laid back vibe that this state- our trip- embodied is still lingering.  Not good, seeing that real life resumes bright & early this very mornin'.

Finally unpacked Saturday night, preceding a bottle of wine & not 1, but 2 movies.  Back to back.  That never happens.

Kinda daunting, getting back into it after all this r&r, but pretty exhilarating at the same time.  A new year awaits.  

An open road.  

Work to be done.  Pleasure to be pursued.  

I'm ready.

But first- I thought I'd share a few pics...  An entire week with Ryan's grandparents, an abundance of trees, and simple, natural beauty in every direction... just what we needed.

{one big trip with lots of little trips in between.}

...an overnight stay with family.

...a rainy drive to the coast.

...for clam chowder, fish n' chips, & grandpa's favorite- oyster stew.

...a trip to the museum.
...to the produce market.
...and of course...
...to wine country.
{rain or shine}
...tasting into the wee hours of the night.

(well, until sundown anyhow)


  1. Welcome back, Torrie! Love the light in these photos! These tell a lot about your relaxed state of mind! Good luck with your re-entrance this morning....

  2. Love these. You guys are such an adorable family and I love the adventures you have together!

  3. Sounds like a fantastic week with family. I always forget how beautiful the Oregon coast is. I've only been there once but it was amazing. It's funny, I was walking through the Farmer's Market yesterday and thinking about Oregon and how amazing their Saturday Market's are. I think I need to plan a road trip. Welcome back and happy new year.

  4. Wine tasting until sundown??? Love it!!
    Your kids are too precious, each of their pictures should be blown up and framed hhah
    And um yummmmm? clam chowder, fish n' chips, & grandpa's favorite-oyster stew!? Ideal!

  5. Oh, so LOVELY. Welcome home and Happy New Year!

  6. Oregon sounds so nice right about now!
