Throwback Thursdays: Pacific Northwest

I haven’t posted one of these in a long time, but with recent conversations that I’ve had with friends- it inspired me to post about one of my favorite places. There are no words to describe the beauty of the Pacific Northwest in the United States. The vast landscapes of both Oregon and Washington state have left me wanting more. Hubs and I had a five year plan before this whole moving abroad business happened. Our goal was to move to Portland or Seattle, because we loved it that much.

Hubs and I have both gone together twice ( in 2010 and 2012) and he’s made several trips out to Seattle before we met. We’ve done the road-trip from Portland down to Crater Lake, over to Ashland and then up the Oregon Coast.  And another time, we did the Seattle-to-Vancouver-to-Whistler, Canada variety. Both were such memorable trips. I yearn to call this place home one day.

Did you know that it's a rare sighting to have such a clear view of Mt Rainier in Seattle?  Both time that Hubs and I have been together, we've been lucky to see it!
