Vacation time.........

And can't wait! We go to the Oregon coast every summer and stay at the same house, it's such a treat. We stay in Gearhart and visit Astoria, Cannon Beach, Seaside and have the best time.
I bring a stack of magazines and books for inspiration and just to relax. We go down to the beach every day that the weather is even semi-nice, but I must confess that we have built fires in the fireplace during our summer vacation sometimes.....that's just life on the Oregon coast.
It's all good, and the best part is that I get to celebrate my birthday there, what could be better?
I'll chat with you in about a week, hope it's a good one for you all, it's supposed to hit the triple digits here in the Willamette Valley, so it's a good time to go away!

Lucky girl. Gearhart is my favorite spot too. Is the house a rental if I may ask. I have stayed at the huge concrete condo. Very nice but would love to rent a beach house. Sharon PS Happy Birthday!!!!

Hi Gail and Happy Birthday whenever it was! Thank you so much for your kind words and encouragement! I am a little scared of this new venture but also excited! I am going to start setting up the garden area this week and then gradually the store as the venders clear out this month.Hope you can stop by at some point:) ~Kathy
