"For the love of North Bend" is a blog series that will highlight places, people, businesses, and the many reasons that make this town so great! When I decided that I wanted to write this blog, I made a few posts on local social media sites to get my creative juices flowing, the response was overwhelming!

I started to compile eveyone's loves and it seemed the material might lend itself better to a book (luckily Bob Antone and his wife are doing that for us:). With all of that said, I thought I might start with sharing a place to meet, sip, gather and share.
It was really hard to choose a starting point but after lots of consideration I landed on Pioneer Coffee
I’m feeling really excited about this one! It always feels great when you can blend things that you truly care about! As You know I feel super passionate about education as well as homes❤️. This seems like the perfect way to combine both. If you know anyone that is looking to buy or sell I would love to help! #ourkidsarethefuture #livewhereyoulove
