PET SHOP UPDATE: The response to our birthday celebration has been outstanding! So much so, that we’ve hit our earliest holiday sell-out to date for custom portraits (aka, the maximum number of paintings I can physically do before December 25th)! We have only a couple of openings left, after which, custom listings will become deactivated. To the moon and back, thank you for the continued support.
As is our travel tradition, Scott and I spent the last week celebrating our wedding anniversary. Okay, so, technically our anniversary is in November, but when a wedding had us booking tickets to San Francisco, we turned a could-have-been-a-weekend-trip into our once-annual-big-trip, and so we also split the west coast visit with our Portland friends! (Hi, Julie! Hi, Brian!)
We’ve been to Portland once before, but this time, we ventured outside of the city. We took a road trip to play along the beaches, taste wine in the Gorge and fill up on cheese plates and chocolate at various vineyards. While the marine layer had already seeped in by the time we made it to Cannon Beach (despite our best efforts to leave the house on time; I blame the excellent brunch we consumed beforehand!), we couldn’t contain our excitement as we danced, kissed and kicked up sand – all while snapping an insane amount of photos. Our stomachs hurt from laughing so hard, our bodies relaxed as we unplugged, and it wouldn’t be too far fetched to say that our bellies may have expanded, too.
For the sake of keeping this short (wait, me?), I’ll share our photos from San Francisco tomorrow, and then we’ll dive back into the swings of things around this home! We’re feeling awfully refreshed, so we couldn’t be more excited for the to-dos on our plate. Yeah, I said it.
