Happy Friday!

It's hard to believe that this is the last day of August. Where has summer gone? I'm hoping that the nice weather will hold out for a bit longer at least, but with each day I feel the cooling breeze of fall approaching. With this being the long weekend, I'm hoping to be able to fit in some relax time, go for some Menchies yogurt, and spend time with good friends. I hope you have a fun and relaxing weekend as well!

{Shop Stop}: Assemble Gallery & Studio

Assemble Gallery & Studio is an inspiring creative space that functions as part gallery, part workshop studio, and part retail. I'm thrilled to have my cards there alongside so many other beautiful goods. I love how they use old card catalogs to display the cards! They'll be launching an online shop very soon so you can get your hands on all the wonderful things they have in store. If you're in the Phinney Ridge area of Seattle, be sure to stop by to say hello.

Hello Portland!

Here are a few snippets via Instagram from my road trip to Portland a couple of weekends ago. It was SUPER hot during those four days, but we enjoyed ourselves. As most vacations go, there was a lot of walking around and PLENTY of eating. Highlights included stops at Pine State Biscuits, Stumptown Coffee, Portland Japanese Garden, food cart hopping around (because of the heat many of the trucks were closed), and a wonderful dinner at Andina. Looking back at the photos, most of them were of food! Portland definitely did not disappoint in this department.

We were hoping to drive along the coast and visit Cannon beach on our way back to Vancouver, but due to time constraints we were not able to. We'll have to leave this for another trip.
