  • I learned how to make _French bread_ in _France while I was living there.___
  • I have always wanted to _travel around the world___
  • My purse always has a _camera_and _a wallet_.
  • One day when I am _not so busy_I am  going to _clean my closets.

    1. We visited the Tillamook Cheese Factory when in Oregon ... it was fascinating to watch. And the sample of their white cheddar was divine! And of course, a visit isn't complete without an ice cream cone. ha!

    2. I am a fan of covered bridges. There was actually one in my own neighborhood growing up (it's still there) and we loved riding our bikes under it to get to the pool. Great pic with the 'little' brother!

    3. Looks like a fabulous vacation! My oldest and dear friend lives in Oregon and I've always said that I'd come to visit. After seeing your wonderful photos, I'm moving that trip up on my list of places to see!

    4. Burchart Gardens is absolutely stunning. And we love the rainforest at Olympic National Park. Looks like you had beautiful things to do and see on your vacation.

    5. Absolutely spectacular trip pictures...Hope you enjoyed Victoria.

    6. Oh Marti.....looks like you had a wonderful time in the Pacific Northwest......such a magical place...isn't it? We finally leave this week.....yipee!!!!



    7. i hate cleaning my closest (but I always find something cool there I forgot about)

    8. As always, beautiful pictures!!
      I want to travel the world too.

    9. I gotta go back there someday.
