poor man's gard{en}

it's been so long!!!

i hope you didn't miss me too much.
but i sure missed all of you.
thank you for the love & support
while i was away these past three weeks.
three. sheesh.

mr. amazing and i spent our first week
down in temecula with dear friends.
and helped get two of them married.
well, more like helped prepare 
their special day.

then, we drove up to portland.
17 hours. almost 18. yes. i know.
be jealous. except it was so special to drive
up with friends who we don't see very often.
and, of course, we ate and drank our way
through the city. that's pretty much all we did.
and enjoyed the gorgeous city.
oh, we went to powell's and a kickball game.

then we took a train up to washington & went fishing.
and drove over to seattle & spent our last night 
in that spectacular city.
my first time.
so of course we went to pike's place & 
took the elevator up to the space needle
(we drank a beer & ate haribo gummi 
bears while watching the sunset. so romantic)
and ate donuts, pizza & drank more beer.
we also walked to lovely park.

here are some photos of our trip
{warning: they are mostly of food & fine beverage}

my vacation started like this. in temecula.

delicious breakfast at jam cafe
on hawthorne. ugh. i want it right now.

heading into downtown portland.

some of the best coffee in portland.

handsome mister amazing at coffeehouse northwest.

a little beer. 
don't worry. i got more later.

local breweries in p town. perfection.

the biggest dahlia i've ever seen. at least 9 inches diameter.

picked fresh blueberries. sooo good.

 taken on my 7 mile run near the willamette.
it's a sign. literally. i know. i'm clever.

 first day in seattle. pike place.

top pot donuts in seattle. good thing i don't live there.
i'd be large.

volunteer park in seattle. so pretty.

 pizza at serious pie in seattle. mmm.

and this last week has consisted of preparing for
the flea market this past sunday.

we were well rested but jumping right back into 
things definitely took a bit of adjusting.

so, of course, i have a few flea market 
photos to share with you
on this 
poor man's gard{en} sort of day

i hope you have had a wonderful month of august.
september is around the corner
and there are some exciting things happening
over here this next month & a half. cannot wait
to share.
