My time here was spent unwinding and thinking. Sometimes in life, you just need to hop on a plane and go with the flow. Last weekend was nothing short of magical. I learned a lot about myself and want I really want in life. I realized that I had bigger priorities and I refused to settle for less. The struggles I've endured over the past few years just seemed to melt away. For the first time I was able to see a clear future for myself and it just might be filled with a closet full of boots, gloves and scarves...
Bend is a quaint city filled with humble, kind people and my heart swelled from the joy.
Look at that view. I'm not sure if it's gets better than this. The cold, crisp air felt invigorating and the nature was something I'd been craving for way too long.
I felt like a queen with a two bedroom suite (and a private hot tub) that overlooked the Deschutes River. Between the soothing sounds of the river, the crackling fireplace, the flowing wine and the great company I had, I was in complete heaven.
Friday afternoon I spotted these two beauties from a distance and on Sunday morning, before I left, momma and baby came over to say hello. I'm pretty sure I gasped from excitement! After being a city girl for so long, I forgot the simple things in life that make me happy.
If you are looking for a winter ski or family ski getaway for the holidays I highly suggest you don't hesitate another minute and book your lift and lodging package at Mt. Bachelor Village Resort in Bend, Oregon. This was by far the most quiet, coziest place I've ever stayed. It felt like home and I honestly, almost refused to leave. I spent time enjoying the nature and soaking in every breathtaking view. I learned how to relax again and to sum it up, this trip was simply life-changing. It's ah-mazing what a few days in Oregon did for my soul.
A big thank you Mt. Bachelor Village Resort and Bend for welcoming me showing me nothing but love. Oregon, you have my heart and I will be back sooner than later.
