Hollie Morris has created a space that is the definition of warm, cozy and inviting.

Morris's boutique, Opal & Oak, is nestled next to the big blue windmill in downtown Lynden. The store sells everything from jewelry and scarves to mugs and vases—they even sell houseplants!

Opal & Oak is truly a family business. Morris and her husband co-own the business together, and their son Max adds an extra dose of cuteness to the atmosphere.

Stanwood, a burgeoning town west of Interstate 5 and south of Bellingham, is home to the picturesque estate vineyards of Bayernmoor Cellars, an up-and-coming Puget Sound winery. Bringing honor to Washington State’s fourth-oldest and second-largest AVA (American Viticultural Area), Bayernmoor Cellars is a humble, family-owned operation producing juice that rivals the likes of its southern brethren in Willamette Valley.

Neither Jennifer Worthley nor Bryan Matamorosa set out to be a chef; it just sort of happened. Coming from different corners of the world—Worthley from Maine and Matamorosa from the Philippines—they both ended up at Bellingham Technical College in 2017 and 2018. Matamorosa was pursuing an associate’s degree in the culinary program while Worthley was enrolled in the pastry arts program. The rest, as they say, is history.

Break out your bucket list; it’s time to imagine UNESCO sites in Europe to explore. Whether you can only dream or have the means to go, our ongoing travel series will take you far away from reality into a time when Kings and Queens ruled, family feuds were deadly, and the countryside was filled with castles and forts that protected against invaders.

The early ’60S house in the Edgemoor Neighborhood had been the client’s family home—it was built for his father’s aunt and her sister, and later the client’s parents had moved in and raised their children there. Now the client was moving back in, along with his wife, and they were ready for a remodel.

Go beyond cards and candies! There’s no better way to feel the love this February than by attending Bellingham Circus Guild “My Circus Valentine.” “My Circus Valentine'' is an annual circus performance that highlights “our human need for connection and what that means.” It’s been recurring since 2010 when Producer and Principal Artistic Director Anneka Deacon, a founding member of the Bellingham Circus Guild, had the idea for a Valentine’s Day show—but not for the reasons you might think.

I think we can all agree that going out for coffee or food is already a treat, especially in these times of ever-increasing inflation. But sometimes, we need a little something extra—whether that’s a small freebie, a creative presentation, or even just a kind word. That’s why we’ve polled everyone we know to get the inside scoop on the places that go beyond “service with a smile” to really make their customers’ days.

Nestled in a quiet residential neighborhood of central Bellingham, surrounded by early-20th century craftsman homes with inviting porches and manicured lawns, is a surprisingly stately house. The Roeder Home, built by Victor Roeder at a cost of $20,000 (that’s nearly $650,000 by 2023 standards) and finished in 1910, is a three-story Arts and Crafts structure with bracketed gothic accents.
