*I have the most delicious apple hazelnut cocktail to share with you today!* I've always known what a privilege is to call the Willamette Valley home. I mean, this place is truly beautiful. Rolling hills of farmland and vineyards with a river winding it's way through the landscape. And I'm not saying that we really need anyone from the 'outside' confirming what we already know.

A Few of My Favorite Things

Best-DIY-Kitchen-Makeover

Hello At the Picket Fence friends, it's me, Julie from redheadcandecorate.com. I wasn't able to stop by last month due to a busy time at our house.
