Road trip fever

Puppy window drivingIt’s no secret that I am in a constant state of wanderlust. While I won’t be going very far, my entire summer weekends will be filled with road trips for work and pleasure, and celebrations of love (it’s wedding season, of course). So here we go, let’s do this, summer! I’ll be sure to share my adventures with you. ❤

Where do you plan on going this season?

The obligatory Pike Place Market visit (Seattle pt. 4)

There were so many fun mini-adventures on our trip to Seattle, which is why I am (not) apologizing for the many different posts I am writing. Traveling is one of my loves, and I don’t get to do it often enough – even if it is just a short car ride away.

So, naturally, one of the places we visited while we were in Seattle was Pike Place Market. It would be silly of us not to! It was a sunny, hot day. Boy, were we glad to have a fresh farmer’s market juice while we enjoyed the sights, sounds, and smells of the market. We didn’t get my favorite pastry from Piroshky Piroshky this time since we just had an incredible seafood feast before going to the market. But next time, Seattle. Next time.

Adventures in (pet)sitting

diptic_1376205680652I spent a few adventurous days pet sitting a dog and two fluffy kittens, all of whom have more love to give than one person can possibly contain. I thought my puppy fever had reached its maximum, but it turns out the threshold is much higher than I imagined. People always try to warn me how much work it is going to be, that it’s going to be much more difficult than I imagined. But I feel I am ready for it, especially after jumping fences and getting knee-deep in neighbors’ bushes to retrieve a wanderlust dog who jumped the fence. No worries, dog. You were a little difficult to retrieve, but you are home safe and sound. I get curious about what’s on the other side of the fence, too. While we had some (mis)adventures, I loved every minute.

Frolicking on Mount Hood

So this is Part 2 to my friend’s birthday up on the mountain (check out Part 1). Did you know that you can play disc golf on Mt. Hood? Well, neither did I! You take a ski lift up the mountain and play disc golf on the way down! You have to dodge some major obstacles along the way, such as mountainous plants and mountain bikers (unexpected!).

It was my first time on a ski lift, and I loved it so much I just wanted to stay on it all day, riding above the mountain and tree tops. I wonder if they would let me?

While everyone else played some serious(ly fun) disc golfing, I was just happy to be in good company. I am not much of a disc golfer. The first and only time I played, my friend and I took turns tossing chucking throwing(?) a disc. We threw the disc straight into the water. Immediately. We haven’t really played since. If you ever want a good laugh, watch me throw a frisbee.

Regardless, I just love being outdoors with some good friends, picking flowers, taking photographs of the gorgeous mountain, and eating every single wild mountain strawberry I could find. They were incredible, by the way.

Portland Flea Market

Portland flea market & sisterSister shopping at Portland FleaIce cream at Portland fleaSister and camera at Portland FleaSale at Portland FleaSneaky selfie at Portland FleaI just discovered Portland Flea, a monthly antique and vintage market in Portland. It is mighty lovely, and I can’t wait to go again! I convinced my sister to join me on my flea market adventure. Good thing she enjoys flea markets as much as I do! It took every bone in my body not to walk away with 100 million new things. But I definitely want to score something next time. I am missing out on this month’s Portland Flea (happening today!), but there will be more to look forward to!

Who’s a happy camper this weekend?

I'm a happy camperNo need to second guess what I am doing this weekend! I’m a pretty happy camper (literally) when I’m out in nature. This weekend is no exception, as I get to spend it with my best friend. We don’t live too close to one another, so we are meeting halfway to camp out on the mountain. This weekend will be full of BBQing, teaching a 2-year-old how to roast marshmallows (mine will be vegan…but still fun), staring up at the stars, exploring the mountainous woods, campfires, and some of the best company I could ask for.
