Celebrations

      I love celebrations! I found out a couple of years ago that I also love planning them! In August of 2016, Jocelyn and her husband Justin were married in a beautiful, family centered ceremony. It was held at a gorgeous home in Happy Valley, what a fantastic day! I was honored to be part of it as a bridesmaid.

    It was actually my first time being a bridesmaid, and I knew I had some planning to do! I never could have done it without  fellow bridesmaid Jackie, a longtime friend of Jocelyn's (who has given her a shout out on our blog before, she is obviously special to both of us!), and now my lifelong friend too! Jocelyn is from Montana, so we decided a cowgirl theme was in order! We went camping at Willamette Mission Park, after a fabulous lunch at Red Hills Market in Dundee. We even had a wonderful, private wine tasting at Argyle winery!

    The camping trip was super fun (sorry, no details! Wink, wink!), we had kabobs for dinner and the yummiest breakfast burritos I wrapped in foil and we grilled in the morning. They were a simple veggie scramble, but I made them special with fresh tarragon (an herb I encourage you to try!). 

    Needless to say, it got me hooked on planning celebrations! Find an excuse to celebrate something! Then invite some family and friends, and enjoy!

XO- Vicky

P.S. Happy Anniversary Jocelyn and Justin!!
