A Charming Town

January 3, 2016

On New Years Day, the sun was shining after days of rain. We decided to drive to the coastal town of Florence, Oregon, that is.


Despite the wind, people were out and about braving the cold weather. Our main focus was food. A certain restaurant had been recommended to us, but it was very busy, and didn’t have a table available.


We decided to give this place a try and I am so glad that we did, because my sandwich was delicious and so was Mr. G’s clam chowder.



After we ate, I walked around a bit, bought a jar of olives and then I found my way to a cute gift shop and purchased a journal. It is unlined and maybe meant to be used to draw in, but it appealed to me, so I will see how it works out.DSCN2847

It is the one on the right hand side. Here are some other paper treasures to start me off on the right track. I know there are other journaling enthusiasts here at WordPress, who have shared their new journals and also new devotionals. We ladies are easy to please, would you not agree? Lol! My focus this New Year is to Simplify and to commit to more Prayer time in my day. Today we woke up to snow. I was so excited, but it barely covered the ground. I am hopeful that we will get more… ps if anyone is interested, this cute B&B is for sale..

    I so enjoyed reading about your day out and the food looks yummy! What a charming looking place, and enjoy your paper purchases. I second your desire to simplify and create more space for prayer in an often too busy a day! Blessings to you in 2016, take care… 😀🌟

    Looks like a lovely day in Florence. Your sandwich plate looks delicious. We have that Secret Garden coloring book and her other one called Forest something. Our daughter Katie is really enjoying them with the hidden symbols, etc. Have a wonderful week!

      It was Ellen! I will have to look those coloring books up. My daughter might benefit from the calming effect of coloring, as she learns new mommy skills…You have a good week too.. Thanks!

    I’ve been to Florence (in the summer though) and it is a charming town. – Looks like you had a nice visit and that food did look pretty tasty.
