Portland is my kind of place.
The kind of place where a front yard bed of kale is considered landscaping.
The kind of place where the eggs are truly local.
Where the rosemary brushes dwarf cars (and maybe out number too).
Where even the dogs demand alternative transportation.
The kind of place where goats are the preferred mode of grass management.
Where self expression is the rule, not the exception.
The kind of place where mountains look like cartoon volcanoes.
And the kind of place where a little sunshine makes each of us feel like we are soaring 4 year olds.
Most of all the kind of place where Cedar, Anna, Chase, Arlie, Jodie, Dylan, Laura, Doug, Gabrielle, Ember, Amber, Jason, Laura, Suniti, Esther, Amber, Keely, Lauren, Preston, Amy, Alex, Sarah, Steve, and Michael welcomed me “home” as though I’d never left.
Thank you, Portland, for an amazing week.
Portlandia all the way
The dream of the 1890s is alive in Portland! 😉

I just booked a trip for a week out there at the end of March. My boyfriend and I are staying with my cousin in Hood River, spending 2 days in PDX, and 3 days at the coast. I cannot wait. It’s on my “I could live there” list.
Awesome, you will get to see the three best place in the area! Enjoy!

I would so love to visit Portland. It sounds like my kinda place. 😀
“A place called Portlandia” 🙂
I live in Portland and you couldn’t have explained it any better! I’m working from my home office looking out to my backyard where there is a huge rosemary bush and 3 chickens kickin’ it in their coop 🙂

Love Portland too! Beautiful PDX post Faith!
This post brought a tear to my eye. I do miss it.
Should we start the Western migration over again? 😉
always wanted to go to Portland, it really is the kind of place I feel like I would love. Glad you enjoyed.
