Nye Beach “my pick” – Newport, OR taken 9/2015

Hood River, Cannon Beach, Timberline Lodge … just three of the top romantic getaway destinations in Oregon. The Oregonian listed their picks for 2016 last weekend and there were no surprises this year. The feature also included reader poll results for best coastal towns with Cannon Beach winning for romance and Florence getting top honors for best getaway. Read more about the hot spots. Note: I have to say Newport wins in my book … beauty, food, Nye Beach, whales, cool vibe and still manages to offer serenity. Contact me if you need any suggestions for your visit.

3 Continents Unite at Joyful PDX Wedding

Tony and MariaFamily members literally gathered from far and wide to celebrate the big day for Tony and Maria. The wedding was held yesterday at the luxurious Sentinel Hotel in downtown PDX. Tony’s African roots were well represented by loved ones who crossed the ocean for the big event including his Mom who lives in England and his Grandmother who traveled from Zimbabwe. Born in So. CA, Maria was happy to have her Grandmother attend from Los Angeles; as well as local family members and friends. The spirit of harmony was felt throughout the ceremony and reception … so much joy filled the room it was palpable. And you gotta love it when guests dance before, during and after dinner. That’s my kind of party. The newlyweds will honeymoon in Cancun before returning to PDX where the bride is an esthetician and the groom is a software engineer for Nike. Congratulations, Mr. & Mrs. Tonderai Nemarundwe. May the love and harmony that graced your wedding day remain with you always!
