    Love, Love,love those waterfall pictures. Reminds me of New Zealand.

    Yeah… gluten free flours ALL taste like sawdust to me. :0

    You look great -BTW!

      Thanks Karen!

      I’d LOVE to go to New Zealand someday….

    That scenery is just amazing – my husband and I always talk about places we’d like to retire to, and the Pacific Northwest is always on the top of the list!

    Low key New Years are just fine for us – sadly, my husband is in the hospital right now – we went to the ER yesterday so hopefully we’ll have more info today.

      I understand that desire, but I think the tax system in Oregon would be a bad idea for a retiree. You could always live across the river in Vancouver,WA. Just a few minutes from Portland.

      That’s scary! Sorry to hear about Tony!

    That hike looks awesome and I LOVE Bella’s booties. They’re so cute!

      They were pretty cute and SO funny to watch her try and walk in them.

    A lazy New Year’s Eve is just fine! 🙂

    The photos from the hike are so beautiful! Hope you’ll go back soon! 🙂

    Wishing you a healthy & happy 2014!

    Oh my, those falls! Spectacular! I am not a big fan of buckwheat. There’s a place my daughter loves that makes savory buckwheat crepes and even with the savory fillings it just seems wrong! 😉

      Those crepes sound interesting….
