If anyone ever asked me to give them advice about life in general (you’d be surprised how often this happens…), I would tell them to find friends that you love to travel with. These are very special friendships because you couldn’t spend a weekend or longer with just any friend, they have to be special. James and I have found these friends and we are lucky that some of them are family and the others just feel like it. The last trip we took together was to Lopez Island but a couple weekends ago, we made the trek over to Bend.
Bend is probably James and I favorite weekend getaway spot. This is where we spent our honeymoon and first anniversary. There are so many incredible restaurants and breweries. Speaking of restaurants, lets talk about Chow. Holy crap this place is amazing. Its the only restaurant I would ever wait an hour to get a table. It’s that good. I’m only slightly obsessed and have only on a few occasions seriously considered driving three hours to Bend just to eat there… Ok, I’m done talking about Chow, but seriously, go there.
We spent most of our weekend eating, playing games, and enjoying the shops and boutiques in downtown Bend and Sunriver. If only I could teleport here every weekend.
I have to post these pictures of my niece because she’s only the cutest thing ever.
