Romantic Oregon Coast 40th Birthday

Posted by Becky / April 7, 2009

My boyfriend and I are in the second year of a long distance relationship. He lives in Oregon and I’m in Maryland. Last year he planned the most perfect and romantic weekend imaginable for my 40th birthday.

He called me at work one day to ask how I would feel about spending my birthday weekend in a cottage on the coast. I was speechless. I couldn’t imagine anything better. He rented a cottage in Yachats where we watched the sunset from the lawn near our cottage, relaxed by our own fireplace and took long walks hand in hand. During the days we explored the Heceta Head lighthouse, tried quaint little restaurants and shops in Yachats and drove to Lincoln City to hear one of my favorite bands.

It’s been more than a year now since my 40th birthday weekend and the memories still make my heart warm and bring a huge smile to my face. As long as I live, the Oregon coast will be one of my favorite places and hold a very special place in my heart.
