Portland love...

It's official - I've fallen in love with Portland! There are so many interesting, beautiful and inspiring things. Do you ever have that sense of belonging somewhere? I'm in awe of the small businesses and endeavours people undertake here. And as for the scenery - jaw dropping. Some recent discoveries include...

Ink & Peat - A wonderful collection of homewares, furniture, flowers, and objets d'art.

The Japanese Garden - Beautifully tranquil and proclaimed as one of the most authentic Japanese gardens outside of Japan it is one of my new favourite places.

Lark Press Printing - Tucked away over on N Williams is a lovely letterpress printing studio and retail space.

Laughing Planet - Scrum-diddly-umptious, wholesome, quick-service cafe. And there's one just a few blocks from our wee home. In fact there are so many great dining options here - our new family plan is to try a new one every Friday night - yum!

The Oregon Coast - One word - sublime! Oregon has such a diverse range of scenery and ecosystems. Put simply - jaw-dropping

J Crew - OK so not officially a Portland exclusive but I love it all the same.

Turtle & Mu's new school - Such a wonderful place - we feel grateful that they get to experience such a warm and inspirating place.

There are so many more things, places, and people I could go on for ever...
I hope you're having a lovely weekend - what:nots will be posted later this evening, and I'm aiming to update the 'our house' set on Flickr with some pics from our home away from home.
