Portland Anniversary Trip




Hello Loves!

Sorry it's been a minute, I've been sitting on this here blog post for a few weeks trying to piece all this together. In coordination with this recap from Grant and I's trip to Portland the first week of April 2017 a LOT has been happening. Well not a ton but it all has to do with Portland itself. 

For starters our trip was INSANELY WONDERFUL, between all the eating, drinking, exploring and coffee consuming we had an absolute blast and by the end of the trip we did not want to come home. I mean how can you not tell by all the colorful photos I've posted above.. 
We were in Portland, Oregon for a total of 6 days, where we spent 3 nights with Grant's fantastic cousin Megan Grant (who also happens to be a hairdresser with a gorgeous house planted in Saint John's neighborhood). We also spent 3 nights in our special Airbnb home (the home of Emily Katz @emily_katz and Adam Porterfield @goldenruledesign) for the second half of our trip. The days seemed to meld into one another and we never made an official agenda other than taking it one day at a time. Below I'll list the places we checked out and so you can take a peek into the world of springtime in Portland though our eyes...

Listed in no particular order here's our Portland Guide:

So basicly if you're planning on taking a trip to PDX yourself anytime soon take this list above as a safe and secure guide that will have you exploring all over Portland's finest neighborhoods. And speaking of neighborhoods I have BIG NEWS everyone, I'll be moving to Portland this fall! 
For those of you who follow me Instagram (@honey_lavender) may already have a hunch that this is happening but it's official now since you're reading it here published in this post that Grant, my boyfriend and I will be seriously moving to Portland, this fall, the first week of October to be exact and we couldn't be anymore excited!!!

On a reflective note I just wanted to mention that sometimes life just falls into place and as much as we try to make things happen for ourselves sometimes we just gotta let life run it's course. With that said I'm also happy to mention that we already have living situation ready for the move as well. We have a place on 12th and Madison which is basically a block away from hip and happening Hawthorne street ready for us to move into when the time comes. 

So long story short there's been some traveling, changes and reminiscing in this here blog post but I gtg and head to work for the evening. You lovers have a great rest of the week! I'll be posting again soon with new content coming your way.
