Dark skies, chilly rain & yellow leaves all mean one thing: fall!
My good friend Michaela & her husband Matt came down from Seattle to visit us & meet little Oliver! We met in college as roommates and have been friends ever since! They have the cutest little dog, Coco, which made me seriously debate about getting a puppy. Matt (my hubby) quickly shot that idea down for the millionth time. I have wanted a puppy for a very looooong time & since we have a tiny apartment we decided it would be best to wait... Having a baby to take care of usually keeps my mind off of the puppy idea (which makes Matt happy).
Anyways, when they arrived we decided to head up to Joseph & Wallowa Lake. It is my favorite place to go, especially in the fall! We stopped at Arrowhead Chocolates & drank some dark chocolate mochas (did I ever mention they give you a spoon to lick which is dipped in dark chocolate...? Well, it is AMAZING!) & also shared some of their chocolate candies. Then we walked to beecrowbee, where they have the best lip balm & yummy smelling soaps. They also have the cutest shop & make a lot of their own products (perfect place to go Christmas shopping!). Finally, we drove up to the lake, but it was really windy & rainy so us girls & baby Oliver stayed in the car while our Matt's went to check out the river & lake.
It was so fun having them here, and I wish we all lived closer!
