Cheese and Crackers

So, we just returned from a sweet weekend away to Tillamook Bay to enjoy some quality time together and lots of cheese.  Holy Moly, did we have some cheese!  I'm pretty sure that I spent a good portion of the trip trying to convince the Mr. that cheese is, in fact, a vegetable and, therefore, good for you.
We absolutely LOVED the place we stayed!  We were greeted with fresh popcorn and complementary *Tillamook* Cheese and crackers every night, and a homemade breakfast each morning.  We are now completely convinced that we should always vacation in the off-season!

We spent an afternoon just reading and relaxing and taking bad-quality pictures in the mirror.

Our hotel was a block from the bay, leaving us with this beautiful view of the fishing boats and sailboats in the harbor.
Cheese, Gromit, Cheese!!!  Seriously, it was like "Picture, Picture" from Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood watching how cheese is made.

OH, and Tillamook makes ICE CREAM?!  As if I would forget.....

Outside the Blue Heron Wine & Cheese Company... following one of the best wine-tastings ever.

We went for a walk on the beach....

Our dinner out...

I cannot even explain how sweet this time together was... a time to hit "Refresh" and start the new year AND check #1 and #3 off the Forest Grove Bucket List!  We enjoyed rich conversation and the opportunity to plan for the upcoming year. What a gift this man is to me!

Blessings on a new week!

PS - Two years ago, today, the Mr. did THIS!!! And, boy, am I glad he did!

We will also remind you that this is just a BLOG…just the highlights. We don’t sit around happily smiling for pictures all day long. Our life is far from perfect: we are imperfect people serving a perfect God. We do strive to glorify God, but we fail miserably and find comfort in knowing that our debts have been paid and we have been set free.
