I hope you all had a merry Christmas!
I apologize for not posting before leaving on my Christmas vacation to
(well, Kelso, Washington actually),
but life just whizzed by those last few days before I left.
Here's a quick recap of a day trip we took into downtown Portland:
We went to
Powell's City of Books
...and I decided I want to move in. I could spend a life time perusing their shelves.
This place had not only newly published books
but hard to find VINTAGE books as well. Oh. My. Goodness.
We grabbed a quick bite at Baja Fresh:
(I know it's probably nothing special to a lot of you out there, but for us Utahans,
it was AWESOME to have good gluten-free, dairy free food. Mmm....)
...then headed to the Portland Art Museum. We saw some of my favorite artists, like...
...& Franz Kline.
There were also some artist's works that I didn't recognize but were inspiring none-the-less:
... and some pieces that were down-right creepy (in my opinion).
We couldn't tell if this installation was a real person or not.
Since he looked like a serial killer, I avoided getting too close.
Did I mention there were Franz Klines?
Seriously, I fell in love with Portland.
I am smitten with all the cafes, shopping, culture, the hustle and bustle,
and you just can't beat their scenery.
Who knows, maybe the hubby and I will end up there one day?
What did you do for the holidays??
