Everything's Coming Up Roses

Off to Portland, the City of Roses, for the weekend to visit my family there -- my dad, sisters, brother-in-law, and niece and nephew. We had a great weekend, full of nature, good food, family time, and hipster-esque "Portlandia" moments (I ate some chicken, I wonder if his name was Colin; but, we didn't go to any feminist bookstores). Some of the highlights included chowing down on some VooDoo Donuts, wandering through the Japanese Gardens, a rainy day drive in the Columbia River Gorge heading up to Skamania, and eating authentic Thai dinner at Pok Pok.

(I wore an old French Connection striped sweater dress over a JCrew chambray button down, with a turquoise and tortoiseshell necklace from Sole Society, and lipstick pink Hunter rain boots.)
