Good Morning my friends!
It’s the dawning of what promises to be a gorgeous late–spring Friday—a mid 70’s, sunshine, top-down (on the car), day-off kind of day—so I’m abandoning my garden


and headed out shortly for an adventure with friends to Hood River, Oregon. We’re visiting wineries, gardens, shops and cafés in what I hear is an exceptionally lovely town, so I’m dashing this off as I throw together the essentials for the day—including my camera, which I am notorious for leaving behind.
I love ‘Field-Trip-Fridays’, and though I used to have them frequently, it’s been awhile since I’ve set out to explore a new place. I’m anticipating a glorious day of food, friends and fun!
By the way, if you’re off adventuring on a Friday this summer and you’re in the eastern Willamette Valley, come visit at Alexeli Vineyard and Winery. I’ll be there through the summer—out in Heidi’s beautiful vineyard garden—pouring the lovely Malbec (as well as Muller-Thurgau, Reisling, Gewurz and of course—Pinot Noir) for you to taste.


Happy Friday to you all, my friends! Enjoy this day and whatever adventure it brings your way!
