Bryce and I had the luxury of spending the weekend in Portland. By ourselves. Without kids. Yes, we had a great time!
We made all the lovely touristy stops - Powell's Books, a walk by the river, a trip to Voodoo Doughnuts* (love the glittery building), and a stroll around the Pearl District. I brought Design Sponge's guide to Portland and we actually used it quite a bit. * If you are unfamiliar with Voodoo Donuts take a sec to read the doughnut menu. What would you choose?
I loved Cargo, a huge store of imports from all over the globe. Not your typical Pier 1, this was a well curated, but very full, store of furniture, textiles, jewelry, nick-knacks and oddities from all over. I had to snap a picture of the bird whistles. These weren't from Luxembourg but they certainly could have been. Bryce was very patient as I oooed and aaahhed over everything.
Have you ever been to Portland? What did you do?
