Last weekend, Chris and I had the opportunity to make a quick trip to Portland to explore the city and visit with his sister and her family. It was a lovely break from the heat of Southern California. We ate and drank so much coffee, roamed around Powells and just had the most delightful time! Here are pictures galore! Brought the Midori along with me to try and record the trip. Most times I was good about it, sometimes I forgot. :)
Bollywood Theatre, yummy food and amazing decor. So many pieces of wall art I just loved. The one thing that Elsie requests when we go somewhere is a tee shirt of the place we visited. We found this cute shop that sells many local artists. Perfect! Tender Loving Empire.
Powells we love you and could spend days upon days there!
Unexpected rain means a new set of Docs. Haven't owned them in about 20 years! Loved this little book shop that had a little reading art gallery in the back! Reading Frenzy. And alas, the sun came out for the last few hours we were in Portland. So pretty and perfect temperature!
Had the infamous Por Que No tacos for our last meal in Portland. SO GOOD! The decor, I melt. SO CUTE.
Last stop, Voodoo to bring back for the kids. I thought they were yummy but Elsie's verdict: "They taste like any other donut I've had." The girl has eaten a lot of donuts and we have some pretty good shops here in LA. :) We loved our visit cannot wait to get back next year with the whole family!
