Our Wine Country Road Trip to Willamette Valley in Oregon and Walla Walla in Washington

For years leading up to our 20th Wedding Anniversary, Steve and I thought about where we’d like to travel to celebrate such a hallmark of our time together. Since falling in love with wine country, we thought it would be nice to visit a wine region and enjoy the relaxation it has to offer. We […]
