Portland Jones #1

Becki, let's grab cappuccinos at Crema, my favorite light-filled renovated warehouse coffee shop in Portland, and then saunter across the street to Una to look at Mociun & Krantz necklaces!

There's a wave of giddiness that comes and goes, that washes over me when I realize that I will be in Portland very soon.  It's been too long since I've seen dear friends, or had a cup of Stumptown coffee (another one we should go to, Becki).  There's been so much life that has passed in this year for myself and loved ones, and there were many times when I wished I could share in those moments more intimately with those who live thousands of kilometers and a vast ocean away. 

Wedged between me and Portland, however, are several long days and nights of writing, writing, writing and then revising, revising, revising - and technically, a shopping layover in Seoul, some time in Los Angeles, and mountain cabin time in Colorado.  



  1. All these bakeries and coffee shop places sound amazing- I hope you have a lovely trip home and do take lots of pictures to share! I'm sure you'll be doing lots of shopping as well :)

  2. oh man, these pictures are getting me into the mood for my own pdx trip in the spring!

  3. How can I possibly resist an invitation this beautiful?! I'm there the very moment you step foot in town, my friend - can't wait! Una and Crema are calling our names! :)

  4. Thanks, Tee! I'll take lots of pictures - it will be my first time experiencing a Colorado winter.

    Joyce: What are you must-eat places in PDX???

    Becki: And Frances May!
