But first the BIG NEWS: We Are Moving to Portland! (more…)

Travel Guide: Portland, Oregon


***Now updated****

Portland has my heart.

I have traveled to a lot of different cities and have been lucky to experience a lot of different things, but there is something I find SO endearing about Portland that I cannot stop recommending this city to everyone I talk to. It’s the artisanship that goes into the food, beer, and crafts that has me falling in love with the quirky city of ‘Portlandia‘, made even more popular by the TV show of the same name.

Haven’t been to Portland? Go! Go! Go! Here are the things I got up to during my first getaway weekend and I just updated it from my recent (second) getaway!
