If there’s one thing I truly miss about Oregon now that I’ve moved back to Texas, it’s all the hiking I used to do.

Honestly, I could easily go on a hike any day of the week where I lived in my college town of Eugene. The other great thing was that hiking spots outside of Eugene weren’t ever too far of a drive as well, all within a few hours driving distance.

Readers, I insist that y’all hike at least one of these spots if you’re ever in Oregon–please!

*Other spots I love that aren’t listed: Silver Falls State Park, Hobbit Trail (Florence, OR), Deschutes Basin, Skinner’s Butte, Yachats, etc.

Bits and Pieces of October

Found a lovely silk scarf at an antiques store that’s perfect for a mother’s Christmas present.

When the temperature begins to dip, it’s time to get out the big pot!

Had a wonderful time hiking Smith Rock for a field lab report.

And of course, to go along with my Game of Thrones obsession, I carved the Stark sigil into my pumpkin.

Pumpkin pancakes are literally one of the best things about this time of year.

Not even the rain can put a damper on my mood when the color of the leaves are changing. 

Happy November y’all!
