back from oregon!

we just got back from our trip to oregon! it was really great to meet my friend lea in person and spend lots of time with an old friend from high school, brittany, and her partner, daphne. i can't even being to explain how breathtaking oregon is... from the mountains, to the trees, to the ocean, everything is just magical, if you ask me. and the weather! oh man, brandon and i did not want to come back to hot and humid texas after experiencing the fabulous oregon climate!

anyway, here are some pictures from our trip. if you're my friend on facebook, you can see the whole album (i took a lot of photos!).

me on the plane! this was my first time flying, believe it or not! (ps - that necklace is a new 'kabuku' piece of mine which will be available in my shop soon ;D).

mt. hood, as seen from the plane, as we descended into portland.

portland, as seen from a viewing area on top of a big hill.

oregon sunset.

ecola state park. it was so moody and perfect with the mist and the cold air!

the water was so cold on my feetsies! it felt awesome!

the astoria bridge, as seen from the astoria column.

the columbia river gorge.

me and brandon in front of multnomah falls in the columbia river gorge. i'm a sucker for waterfalls!

we had such a great time! thanks to brittany, daphne, and lea for showing me and brandon a great time - it was our favourite vacation so far! you guys are the best!

It looks so beautiful! My boyfriend grew up in Oregon (he is half American, and lived there until he was 15, when they moved to Europe), and I just can't wait to see it some day!
