Today it was slightly cooler out, though the locals still thought it was too hot. At 84 degrees. (Sigh. I wish we had 84 degree summers in Austin!)
i hid the bat in justin’s pants pocket as i was putting away laundry last week :: he made his way to portland!
in the 2nd floor lobby of our hotel, a pop-up concert :: her voice was a trumpet, a heartbreak, a memory
espresso con panna from stumptown
it looked so pretty on the lobby table
after some walking around town, we headed to the portland saturday market :: these flowers were so pretty
being on the willamette reminded me of new orleans somehow :: except with jet skis
this is my “don’t take my photo” face
i think it’s time to dye my hair :: and get a tattoo
cutest sign at the market
kalua pig plate lunch :: poke :: kimchi :: mai tai :: dark and stormy :: we love this place
look, dad! they still have arco here!
gorgeous display outside the supercute woodsman market
adding to my collection
justin’s birthday present :: i don’t know what this is but he loved it
dinner at grüner :: potato croquettes stuffed with raclette :: tomatoes with freekeh, kale chiffonade and creme fraiche :: liptauer with radishes and pretzel croutons :: ricotta zucchini dumplings :: maultaschen :: fantastic
after dinner we headed back to powell’s for more book shopping
of note: restaurants don’t put ice in their water here

It looks like you two are having a lovely time:) Unfortunately you missed the “cold front” that blew into Texas this weekend, where the first cool day of the season is playing tricks on us. It’s glorious. Enjoy your time!!!
Cool front?!! Oh, I hope we bring some of this cool weather home with us. 🙂
I love these Portland snapshots! You’re so great at creating that airy, dreamy feel of traveling to a wonderful place. Fun!
Thank you so much!
