Weekend getaway!

Last time Stephen and I were in Pacific City, it was to spend some time with my parents before they left for Idaho. This time it was for our honeymoon! ...Sorta. 

Stephen and I weren't able to take a honeymoon this summer because I've been in an internship and we're moving to Alaska, well, today! We simply didn't have the time. We've loved getting to start our (real) lives so quickly, and most importantly, together, but we're still planning a honeymoon for later down the road. Maybe on our one year anniversary we'll be on a warm beach with our toes in the water and a drink in hand. Until then...

My parents were so sweet to give us a weekend getaway at their condo. The Oregon Coast is our favorite place and it was the last time we'd be there for a year... The weekend was perfect! Stephen and I are so grateful for all my parents did for us. The place came stocked with drinks, food, goodies, roses and chocolates. It felt so nice to have a break from work and a weekend together before Stephen left for Alaska. 

We started the weekend with a dinner date at yummy Big River

(that Stephen insisted on climbing up and running down many times)

Us :)

The view from the backside of the dune.
We took a little trail through wooded area to get there,
no one was up there - so secluded and gorgeous!

Went walking and shopping through town.

Dinner on the deck :)

Watching the sunset

Yes, thanks mom and dad
We had so much fun; we are so grateful!
