We're Off to Ashland Oregon!

I love Oregon in the fall

After an exhausting but wonderful move last week, we are now, shockingly, mostly unpacked. We are at least at the stage where we can cook and do dishes and laundry (at any hour- hoorah!) and bathe and perform all of the basic functions of everyday living. We even have internet as of yesterday evening.

This weekend we will not be staying at home to complete all of our projects, but instead escaping to Southern Oregon. Nearly 9 months ago, before we could foresee this whole moving business, we bought tickets to the Ashland Shakespeare Festival. While part of me feels bad about ditching all the work we still have to do and running off to play and explore, I am mostly thrilled. This is an event I have been trying to attend since high school, and we will be spending our Labor Day weekend soaking up "Measure for Measure", "Love’s Labor Lost", and even a musical with "Pirates of Penzance". It feels good to check an item off the bucket list, doesn’t it?

We will naturally chronicle our adventures and the best food we can scout out along the way. Until next week!


  1. Have so much fun! Can't wait to see all the goodies you'll eat.

  2. Thanks Tiffany! I'm looking forward to the food perhaps most of all.

  3. Have a great time at the festival! My town has their own Shakespeare fest and this summer I too saw "Love's Labor Lost"...fantastic! Those boxes can always wait!


Thanks for sharing your thoughts with me!
