If you live in western Oregon (or really anywhere in the Northern Hemisphere), I don’t need to tell you summer is finally here! The gorgeous weather here really makes me feel so lucky to live in the Pacific Northwest, particularly when I hear about the plight of family members back home in the Midwest dealing with 100+ degree heat and major power outages.
Recently, my husband and I took a quick trip from Portland to the Hood River area to check out some of the local wineries on the Fruit Loop. Definitely a work trip, research related you know. Since I’m almost 8 months pregnant, I got to be the DD, but that was ok because it turned out there were lots of activities other than wine tasting for me to enjoy-not to mention the fabulous views!
