Weekend Recap: Portland 2014

As you might remember, I went up to one of my favorite cities earlier this month. If you need a refresher, here you go! Well, I’m back from Portland and seriously missing it already. Side note: while in the Pacific Northwest, my darling friend Kortni and I began working on something really exciting for ye olde blogge, so be sure to follow my blog with Bloglovin or my  musings on Twitter to ensure you won’t miss any announcements! Also, check out my travel, DIY, and recipe inspiration boards on Pinterest to see what I might be making/doing next!

Getting Ready for Portland (2014 Edition)

Man, oh, man. With the NapaQuake turning the Wine Country upside down for a short while (click here to read my story), I’ve been itching to get out of California.  My trip this past weekend to Chico was heaps of fun and filled with food, friends, and beer! But I have somewhere a little farther away I’d like to get to.. PORTLAND! We all know Portland is one of my favorite cities and I’m excited to say that this weekend, I’ll be jetting up to that fabulous city for a quick weekend getaway.

My darling friend Kortni and I have been scheming together to see one another, but our schedules are jampacked. Sometimes being an adult sucks. But we finally discovered not one, but TWO weekends where we’ll get to see each other. A few weeks after my visit up to Portland, she’ll make her way down to Napa. That should definitely keep my wanderlust at bay until my Mexico trip in November, but more on that later.


This picture captures us perfectly.
