Portland has my favorite Stumptown coffee. I loved sitting in my jammies, drinking coffee, and staring out the window at the leaves that are just beginning to change colors. Have I said how much I love fall?
We made a stop at this fabulous shoe store Halo, in the Pearl District. I am drooling over these shoes! Every pair was handmade, and work of art!
We ran by the co-op close to my parents apartment, and I came across this amazing smelling chapstick by Soothing Touch. One of the ingredients is Cardamom, which is my absolute favorite smelling spice. This is definitely a new favorite!
I had the chance to visit Salt and Straw. It was hands down the best ice cream I have ever had. OMG seriously amazing! I ordered a mixture of Coconut with Petunia’s Salted Caramel Bars, which by the way is dairy free and Vegan, and Oregon Rocky Road. I can’t wait to go back!
I am slightly obsessed with this next item. Did you know there is a new fruit called a Kiwi Berry? I often do not buy kiwi’s because I hate to peel them. Here is a new version, grown only in the Northwest, and Chile. These delicious treats are the size of a kumquat, and require no peeling, but look and taste identical to a standard kiwi. Who knew?
My brother always happens to know about these random hideaways. He mentioned that he would like to take us out for a Spanish Coffee after dinner one evening. Little did I know that meant Barcardi 151, and fire, lol.
These are a few of my favorite people. We may not all live close to each other, but I love seeing you every chance I get! Thanks for making the trip so fun!!
