My First Vlog

Hello Everyone! I have seen a lot of bloggers become very creative at "vlogging" in the last year so I finally tried my hand at creating a short film highlighting the events of a morning/afternoon as Megan Preston! I hope you enjoy learning a little more about me!

Wine Tasting with Friends

This last weekend was way too much fun - a best friends bachelorette party Friday, followed by a day of wine tasting in beautiful Washington wine country Saturday, followed by a relaxing Sunday afternoon bridal shower! Katherine, the beautiful bride-to-be was absolutely overjoyed by the series of events that us bridesmaids had arranged for her, and what a great weekend it was for all. Many of the girls came from out of town to enjoy the festivities and it was great to be able to meet a few of Katherine's college friends who I had never before met!

So Saturday was my very first wine tasting and I really can't believe it! I turned 21 two years ago and live in Washington wine country - basically nothern Napa Valley!! We all decided that as Washingtonians, we must make it a regular thing..

We all decided that Terra Blanca is the place to go (below) the views are absolutely stunning and the atmosphere is majestic - it really does feel like tuscany! High ceilings, giant 12 ft doors, a friendly host and a glass of Rose - what more could you ask for! I highly recommend visiting Terra Blanca if you're ever in our neck of the "woods"!!

Planning the Belated Honeymoon

Andrew and I finally came to the conclusion that its been far too long since we've gone away.  We've been so caught up in trying to get on our feet that we haven't had that much needed quiet time together that we so desperately need.

For the past two years we've been on countless soccer trips with Andrew's teams and have passed the ferry terminal signs on the highway many times. I've always had a wanderlust for the islands and finally we are going! A few hours North of Seattle,WA are a group of Islands called the San Juans, and that is were we'll be headed at the end of June! We'll be staying on Orcas island - said to be the perfect combination of potential sea and forest exploration. We are both hoping to catch a glimpse of the beautiful orcas while picnicking and beach combing for three full days!

I have always been one to scan vacation home sights for hours no matter how user friendly they are. This time especially, I just wanted the perfect romantic getaway - so after scanning for hours and reading countless reviews I finally decided to make a reservation at the Rosario Resort on Orcas (below).

Rosario Resort, Orcas Island WA
I am extremely excited for our relaxing getaway and am finding myself dreaming of beachy picnics and heated pool dips on a daily basis.

Stay tuned for a thousand photos of sparkling water, forest and wildlife!
