Oregon Coast Photo Diary


We’ve been exploring the oregon coast for a few years now. Every year we get to see a little more, and every year I fall more in love with this pacific northwest wonderland. I couldn’t have asked for a more amazing time! Mario was the SWEETEST for putting this weekend together, he knows the way to my birthdayzilla heart. This birthday was special for so many reasons, and you can blame the pregnancy hormones but I get a little emotional thinking about it. I feel like the best trips are the ones that you look back on and think “Whoa, we really got to do that?! That really happened!” I feel so much gratitude in my heart for this special season, for the fall weather, for another year on this earth, and for the opportunity to carry our sweet little babe. My heart is SO happy. On top of that we got to stay at the cutest little beach house near seaside oregon via Vacasa. Our experience with them was amazing, and I’d do it again in a heart beat.

Here’s a little photo diary of this gorgeous place! this place will always hold a special place in my heart and I can’t wait to make more memories as our little family keeps growing.

I got to wake up to my 25th year of life in this cozy place, and was treated to a delicious home made breakfast.

The perfect breakfast nook. We packed our dave’s gourmet over night oats for a quick option for breakfast on the go!

I love fall, and it was so fun to stop in these festive little shops a block from where we were staying.

The sweetest little space.


On my birthday we spent it exploring our favorite spots, like Cannon Beach’s Ecola State Park. You get some breath taking views of haystack rock from their lookout. We also went on a sweet little walk in Oswald State Park that leads you to Smuggler’s Cove. It had the perfect moody oregon vibe, next time we’re for sure doing a beach bonfire here!

Ended the day with some delicious birthday cake from Cannon Beach Bakery!

We went on a five mile hike to Cape Falcon in oswald state park. We climbed 27 floors and needless to say I was exhausted by the end! Not too tired to take all the bump photos, though. Carrying our baby girl has been one of the greatest joys of my 25 years.

Ended our last day on the coast with a sunset at Cannon Beach. It was the perfect way to say goodbye to our fun getaway.

On our way out of town we stopped at Schoolhouse Electric Co.’s storefront in portland. It was a design heaven! We got our little babe some unique children’s books and I can’t wait to put them on display!
