As The Twilight Saga: Eclipse dominated the MTV Movie Awards, demolishing competitors with its mega-fan power, I was relaxing at my local Forks, WA B&B, recovering from a two week vacation binge that culminated in the sleepy little town where it all started. Relaxing in the quaint and homey Misty Valley Inn’s media room, I felt fortunate to be able to watch Eclipse win the award for Best Movie and to see the world premiere of the new Breaking Dawn trailer while actually in Forks.

If you [...]

My husband and I just returned from a 2 week Pacific Northwest blitz vacation, where my sweetie gracriously agreed to spend a whole 3 tedious (for him, hah!) days in Forks and Port Angeles.
