We're back, and a new chapter begins... photos from a pretty trip to Bend

We're back from our lovely little mini-trip to Bend over the weekend. It was great and I'm feeling very refreshed and ready to start my new job tomorrow! Thanks for the well wishes last Friday and on Instagram--I'm excited but definitely a little nervous.

We had an awesome time celebrating our anniversary and chilling out in Bend, Oregon, where it was sunny and clear and the air smells like ponderosa pines.

We saw amazing mountains, walked around the tons of parks in the sun, ate pretty food, swam in the nice hotel pool and hot tub, ate more pretty food and walked around some more, and then went to Lava River Cave and went a mile underground in a cave with a propane lantern. Adventure!

Lots of parks.
I take that back. I'm almost ready for the new job. Yikes!
