It could not have been a more lovely time to escape the heat and my creative, busy mind! George had some business to do in The Willamette Valley, Oregon and invited me to join him for a weekend escape. How could I resist this opportunity to visit friends, enjoy some travel and my favorite wines from the Willamette region?
A dear friend of mine has a new home in McMinnville, a town about 35 miles from Portland. She and her husband welcomed us to stay with them this past weekend! They are brilliant entertainers and made us feel so special during our stay. We were able to enjoy McMinnville from the eyes of a local, not a tourist, which was very cool! We enjoyed a magical walk, garden gazing, delicious food, wine tasting and created a memory that will last a lifetime!
We are so thankful for this time with our dear friends, which came at the most perfect time.
