Good, Random, Fun ~ Week 23

the GOOD
In 2016 I'm attempting to do #52weeksofstorytelling with a different theme each week.
Week 22/52 - Refresh

Sometimes I don't realize how much I need a break from regular life until I get that break. This past week was vacation for us and hanging out with family and friends was just what I needed! The first half of the week was just the four of us, then some friends from church joined us for the last couple days. It was fun to play, hike, run, eat, talk and laugh. And now I'm ready and refreshed to tackle summer and the busy month ahead. 

more GOOD
there is so much beauty and diversity in the state of Oregon
Central Oregon is completely different from where we live, and I love the change in scenery

my raspberries are ripe, we played at a new to us vineyard and my frogs are everywhere

the FUN
have I mentioned how much I love macro photography?
Here are a few more shots from my backyard...

I'm linking up with Good, Random, Fun , Seasons and Life Through the Lens

  6. Oregon is my dream retirement state!! That snowcapped mountain is breathtaking peeking through the tree line. Visiting from Lisa's

  7. Wow what a wonderful array of lovely, lovely photos. I especially liked the first shot, your frogs and the macro flower at the end.

  8. I am biting at the bit for a break. But I think ours will come this fall, so push on I will. Your trip sounds dreamy, and I am glad it was refreshing. The scenery there is stunning.
