“A person does not grow from the ground like a vine or a tree, one is not part of a plot of land. Mankind has legs so it can wander.”

SAN DIEGO + A Little About Me: Recently this year, I’ve had opportunities through my work to travel some of the West Coast. I was in San Diego for a work trip over MDW. Although I’m not a world traveler, nor am I traveling far from home, I think I can still learn a lot by traveling to new places. I was 16 when I first flew on a plane, we went to the grand canyon and 21 the only other time after when my family and I went to South Carolina (my only time being on the East Coast!). Now 24, I have flown well over 6 times in 2016 and June has only begun. In efforts to rid myself of my fear of flying, I keep getting myself on a plane. All of this might not seem like a big deal to some people, but for someone like me who hasn’t flown much and hasn’t traveled much, this year has been a learning experience! Hoping to plan a big trip within the coming year, I will need some cocktails to be on a plane for 14 hours!
As I grow my blog, I realize some readers might not know much about me. I am a small town girl from Southern Oregon. I grew up in a town of 4,000 people and from a small tight knit family of 5; I have two younger sisters who I’m very close with, my mom who is my best friend and my dad who encourages me with everything I do. I recently graduated from Oregon State University and moved up to Portland Oregon about a year and a half ago. I have been able to find a great group of friends, work family and my own little puppers, Jax, to make Portland my home!
Memorial Day Weekend (MDW): Below I’ve shared some pictures of my Memorial Day Weekend. I was all over the place. I was in San Diego for work a couple of days, in Corvallis for a photo shoot and home in Southern Oregon for the last two days. I was so thankful to not be in a car or a plane! My sister, Shelby hasn’t been wine tasting since she’s turned 21, so we went to a few local wineries in Southern Oregon. Paschal’s is a small winery in Talent, OR (where we’re from) and the other we went to is right by the golf course in Phoenix, OR called 2Hawk Winery. Great places! I would also recommend Belle Fiore Winery in Ashland, OR if you’re ever visiting Southern Oregon and want to taste some great wine with a view!

Enough about me, let’s talk about YOU! Where are you from and where is your favorite place to travel? 🙂
