Life has been busy lately with lots of travel and exciting things happening! This past week alone I traveled to and through 3 states and saw tons of friends and family.
I love traveling, but I think it's made all the more sweeter when I get to come home and sleep in my own bed, shower in my own bathroom and resume a somewhat regular schedule for a little while.
Last Friday I headed off to the land of palm trees, blue skies and sunshine!
It's been almost a year since I last visited Palm Desert and I was well over-do for a visit! I spent many days down at the pool with this view...
And many evenings on the patio with a glass of wine in my hand and this view...
It wasn't all pool time and sunsets though. I also went into town and got my hair cut. I have been contemplating growing it out, but just couldn't take the helmet hair anymore. As soon as I saw the finished product, I immediately felt 'normal' again and like myself. I think I'm destined for a life of short hair.
While I was sad to fly back home and leave SoCal, I was super excited to be back in Portland to join Kayla for the Amos Lee concert at the Oregon Zoo Thursday night! Amos was amazing as usual, and I loved how close we were able to get to the stage with our general admission tickets.
How do I get press passes like those lucky ducks in the front?! I was KICKING myself for not bringing my real camera. I was close enough to have gotten some really great photos, but had to settle for iPhone snaps instead.
See?!?! Look how close! Sigh...
Early the next morning I was back at PDX to head to Boise for the weekend.
I spent Friday evening with my favorite person. I just love spending time with this little. She's such a character.
Sunday morning I was back in Portland again and joined my brunch book club crew at City State for a delicious breakfast and book chat. It was the perfect temp to sit outside and enjoy a cup of coffee and a chat.
This next week I'm staying in Portland, and looking forward to some down time at home with a regular (or somewhat regular at least) schedule for a little while.
