What an amazing vacation! I don’t remember the last time I went away, and felt so relaxed–it was perfect, and exactly what I needed before I begin my summer work. Ashland was absolutely gorgeous.
Mandie showed me around the Oregon Shakespeare Festival.
I drank this awesome delicious blackberry beer. Aaaaaahhhmazing,
We went to a beautiful winery at the Applegate.
The second day, we met up with our friend Brittany who is also working up there, and took an other walk through Lithia Park. I can’t get over how amazing it is. If I lived here, I would be at the park every single day.
And I finally got to try the famous clover coffee from Starbucks.
The truth? It tasted the same as regular iced coffee to me. Maybe I need a more refined coffee palet 😉
The trip was absolutely perfect in every way, and seriously has me wanting to move to the Northwest! Now I’m busy busy up in Portland, but I have 2 exciting announcements!!
YESTERDAY I RAN!!!!! It only hurt a tiny bit, and for the last mile and a half, I didn’t stop to walk at all! I’m on my way back to training, and I had a serious runners high going!
