It has been a long winter for us here in Portland but Spring is finally just around the corner. Living here has made me appreciate how wonderful Spring is. Flowers are in bloom, Farmer's Markets are finally opening, and my favorite part -- being able to dine outside! Our back patio table is back in action. I love any opportunity to sit outside to eat -- doesn't it just make a meal feel much more special?
Whether you're doing some last minute Holiday shopping or treating yourself to something special, we've got you covered. Holiday deadlines are fast approaching (December 16th for domestic, December 13th for International orders) so it's time to get your orders placed if you want them by Christmas! The whole store is 15% off until the cut off date, which again is the 16th of December.
I've been dying to explore more of Oregon lately so this was the perfect trip. We both mean to get out more and explore, but work and life always seem to get in the way. For the past few weeks I've been glued to the couch sick, so getting out was so needed. We took both the dogs, as usual, and headed East. The drive out to the Painted Hills is really cool and you go through just about every type of terrain; from evergreen trees, to snowy mountain views, to bright red soil brushed hills. My favorite part of the Painted Hills is the color variations. How perfect is that reverse ombre hill shown above!? That pinkish mauve soil might be my new favorite color.
I can wholeheartedly say that Paris is one of my favorite places in the world, and like thousands of other people, I want to live there someday. So does my dude, who actually took it a step further and learned french. A girl can dream, right!?
