Come Fly Away...

Back from a whirlwind two days in Portland and am so excited to share my pictures! They really do not give it justice, The whole time I was there I just kept thinking about how lucky I was to be in such a beautiful place, and that I couldn't believe this was "out there" and I had never known! The trip would not have been possible without a little help from The Pilot, who so graciously helped us out with some friends and family deals ;) So up in the air we went early Saturday morning and we floated on cloud nine all weekend long visiting our darling Julia in her new home.

Miss Jules and their brand new pup precious!

The weather held out for the most part and we were able to take in the unbelievable Fall scenery. We just kept talking about how great it would be to visit during each and every season as the city and surrounding areas would be equally amazing Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall.

We started our weekend right with an amazing brunch, bellini's and girl talk at Mothers Bistro downtown.


Love these ladies! (Hate the roots! getting fixed tomorrow!)

It was so nice to have a little girl time with these two girls. They will forever hold a special place in my heart as they were my very first friends when I was the new girl in school waaaay back when in 6th grade. Their friendship means the world to me and it's been an amazing almost 18 years of friendship that only gets better with time and age... just like a good wine ha!

Pioneer Square Courthouse

We spent all of Saturday touring the city and it's different districts, we did a little shopping, walking, and relaxing with wine.

No sales tax!! One of Portlands many perks!

Adorable little wine bar, the perfect stop after a long day of shopping.

Jules, Me, and Tina

All dolled up and ready for a night on the town.

We ended the day with dinner at Urban Fondue and with an after dinner drink at the Teardrop bar. Lovely ladies night!

The next day we had a full day of sightseeing to pack in before it was time to head back to the Bay!

Waking up to their incredible view...

Pretty fall pathway outside of their building...

Incredible views at Vista Point...

Just a tad windy...

Waterfalls and winding pathways...

All of this beauty just a short drive outside of the city...

Once we headed back to their neighborhood we took advantage of their great location to walk down to the waterfront and enjoy an early dinner...

It was the perfect ending to a perfect weekend.

Already looking forward to planning my next trip! If you've never been I hope you've enjoyed my mini tour. A wonderful way to begin a week of thanks, I'm so thankful for amazing friendships and discovering new places. Thanks Steve and Jules for hosting and I can't wait to be invited back ;)

XOXO- Miss V.
