Lovely friends –

This next week is a busy one for me – adjusting to my new job and learning the ropes, celebrating my 29th birthday, acquiring a new tattoo, and logging some hours Love (ing) Portland.  I’ve decided for my sake, and poor Favorite’s sake, to give myself a brief vacation from blogging to celebrate, adjust, and relax.  We’ll return to our regularly scheduled programing on Monday the 22nd.  Until then, I’m wishing you tons of happy summer moments with all the peace that’s present in the picture above.  May your hugs be long ones, your meals be full of great company and conversations, and your sangria plentiful.  🙂

See you in a week!

    I miss you! I miss my bright ray of sunshine every morning, but you are definitely entitled to a vacation. I hope that you and Favorite had a wonderful week. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
