One of my goals this year was to take my mom on a road trip. I think road trips are amazing for relationships. There is so much time for conversations, beautiful scenery and good music!
I took my mama to Portland and then we drove to Central Oregon to a ranch called Black Butte Ranch — we had such an amazing experience!
Oregon is beautiful y’all! I mean WOWZA.
The best moment for me on this trip is when my mom told me that the trip had changed her life. She told me she felt renewed. That was exactly what I wanted.
Anyway we had such a great time and I got so many DM’s on my Instagram asking about recommendations for Oregon so I’m gonna share a list here with y’all!
