To the Tulips

Written by Megan.

Spring has sprung here in Portland, but has it really if we don’t share a post of us with some more biological proof? We finally made it. After years of hearing about these beautiful fields of flowers, we drove down to Woodburn to frolic in a field of spring itself.

We love the country. So much so that we plan to eventually leave the hustle and bustle of the city to be among the quiet and slowness of small-town life. We dream of a big house with a wraparound porch where our garden will grow, our pup can run free, and our future children can adventure in peace.

You see, that is what I know. I grew up in a small town where everyone knows your name, what you did the day before, and what you did that one day in second grade. In all actuality, it is what has made me the person I am today and I think it truly has taught me to be extra vigilant about my actions in my life and how to treat those around me like my neighbor.

We arrived at the Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival and were delighted to find that parking was a breeze. Actually, it may have been because of the breeze. It was a pretty quiet day there, with not many people. It was also blustery with the heavy clouds above taunting us with rain drops every so often. We were lucky though, warmed by coffee, lovely staff, and tulips for days. I know the photos can probably speak for themselves here, but what a sight to see!  

We came for a quick visit just to see the flowers, but we know that there are a lot of other great things to enjoy at the festival including hot air balloon rides, wine tasting, hay rides, and shopping from local vendors.

We hope to come back next year, fingers crossed the weather will be better!
