One Down, Three to Go

 

I can’t believe a quarter of the year has already passed by! Growing up, I always had older people tell me: “oh just you wait until you’re older…time will start flying by!” I honestly never believed them when they would say that, and yet, here I am, wondering where the time went.

2017 has already treated me so well, though, that I won’t complain about how fast it seems to be going by. I was able to take a trip to Seattle and back to my second home of Oregon, spend time exploring new places in my area, and change up my casual wardrobe to represent a more post-grad life ( Side note: This has also resulted in a few more people now asking which college I recently graduated from instead of asking which high school. #shortpeopleproblems? haha).

Hope 2017 has been good to y’all as well!

Over the Thanksgiving holiday, the other half and I travelled up to Portland not only to see Pearl Jam but to also celebrate the birthday of a good friend of ours. Going to the Portland Art Museum was a must–plus, the Samurai Exhibit that’s showing there right now is too cool to pass up. Our friend also indulged in the fact that I was a newbie to the city as we also ventured off to Pioneer Square and the iconic Mississippi Avenue neighborhood.

Also, for those who love restaurants that put local farms to good use make sure to check out Sweedeedee on Albina Ave. It’s a very quaint cafe and there generally is a wait to get a table, but the atmosphere and fresh food makes up for the wait and then some. Sweedeedee has also recently been named among the Top 10 restaurants in Portland by Portland Monthly magazine.

Hope y’all had just as great of a weekend!
