Here’s a little collection of snapshots from our Portland trip. We had such a great time! I really loved Portland and having a whole week to wander around eating, shopping, and getting to know the city.

1-3 We were lucky enough to get to stay in Andrew’s uncle’s stunning condo in the Pearl district. Look at that view!
4-6 I loved visiting the local Zoo! My favorite was the bat exhibit. Such cute and strange little creatures.
7-14 Amy and Tyler’s wedding was simple, lovely, tucked away in the middle of the woods, and completely perfect for them. They’re both biologists and ignited a “unity volcano” during the ceremony rather than a cheesy candle. So perfect. <3
16-20 On Sunday, we checked out the Flea at Rejuvenation. It was pretty magical in there.
21-22 I had to stop into Crafty Wonderland! It’s an adorable store. I bought a cute brooch from The Paper Mama. :)

    Ahhh! I want to go back!

    • It’s so weird that we just missed each other there, Staci! Haha, I swear we will meet and hang out one day. Somewhere!

  • Yay! What a beautiful photo collection! Craft Wonderland also does two large craft fairs a year. :) I’ve been to one of those, but haven’t been to the store, though!

    • Man, I would love to go to one of the shows one day! Since we have such an awesome hook-up with the free place to stay, I’m hoping we can make Portland an annual trip so I can catch some cool events like that!

  • that condo looks so cozy– sounds like you had a lovely trip! these photos are wonderful and you look so so gorgeous. also, i don’t know how long i’ve been living under a rock but i am loving your new layout! <3

  • Portland looks so fun and friendly. I hope i get to finally get to see it for myself when I next visit the U.S.A.

    • It was super friendly! That was one of the most pleasant surprises to me, actually. I think I expected everyone to be super cool, aloof, and pretentious, but people were so sweet!
