Salem Trip

Hello there all,

Over Valentine's Day weekend, The Mister and I went on a trip to Salem. Why? It is so close, but it is far enough away to feel like we were getting away. We were able to get a schmancy hotel downtown (because who tries to live the schmancy lifestyle in Salem?) for a way cheaper budget than Portland. During college, I lived rather close to Salem, and I never understood the intrigue of it all. However, I have a secret: I have a bit of a crush on Salem now. It has some neat architecture, some delicious noms, and it is rich in Oregon history. Nerdiness love!

It was a ridiculously, lovely weekend. Sorry for all the pictures, but this doesn't even begin to show all of them.
