A Day in the Life of Jean in Oregon

A Day in the Life of Jean in Oregon

Before meeting my husband, all I knew about Oregon was the Oregon Trail, which was a game designed to teach school children about the realities of 19th century pioneer life.

Boy, did I have a lot to learn... for the past 8 years, we have been going to Oregon once, sometimes twice a year to visit my husband's family.  My in-laws are among the kindest and most thoughtful people I know, with a deep respect for nature and the environment.  I always love visiting and spending time with them when we visit.

So, here I have put together a Day in My Life in Oregon.  



Heading out for an early Morning Run in the dark on Coyote Hill; flashlight in hand of course

Spectacular views

Vineyard sighting

Coyote siting on my Run- there were 3 of these guys, but I was only quick enough to snap one of them with my phone

Bus stop

Post run Breakfast- Yogurt with blueberries, bananas, almonds and a drizzle of Oregon raw honey from the property

Drove an hour to the Oregon coast- Newport

Loving the message on this boat

Lunch at one of my favorite restuarants along the Coast - Tuna Nicoise @ Local Seafoods- Newport, Oregon

Evening run in Fitton Park

Light pouring into the forest

View out the window @ dinnertime

Lavender sachets purchased from the Corvallis Farmers market - I tuck them underneath my pillows at night for a soothing, relaxing sleep
