Mamaholic Visits Oregon
Wednesday, September 3, 2008

A great friend of mine from college, Laura (a.k.a. The Mamaholic), traveled last week from Illinois with her husband and daughter to experience all that the Pacific Northwest has to offer. I'm so glad that I was able to meet up with them at Larch Mountain for just a short time while they were zipping through town.

Laura's daughter, Clara, was born just one day before Avery.

After camping and hiking in the Columbia River Gorge, the very exuberant family of three rushed off to the coast--gearing up for quite a drive south before entering Redwood National Park in Northern California for more hiking and exploring. It's so refreshing to know that there are other die-hard, outdoorsy families out there. I was starting to think something was wrong with us.

My Wine Personality:
For the most part I’m a chardonnay, as I consider myself to exhibit a somewhat sunny and mellow disposition (most of the time), but because I find a tremendous amount of joy out of showering my two kids with hugs and kisses, I also possess the subtle sweetness often found in a riesling. But don’t be fooled. I love a great outdoor adventure and am willing to try anything once. This occasional display of boldness is thought to match that of a cabernet, whereas my appreciation for nature suggests that I have an earthy component to my personality—very characteristic of a merlot.
