|The earth is the LORD'S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. Psalms 24:1|
My quick three day getaway with John was just what we needed! It kinda felt like a mini Honeymoon, we enjoyed each other so much, kinda of neat that after 15 years of marriage we still like being around one another! Portland was one of the most beautiful places I've seen. The tree's were in abundance and showing off their amazing fall color's!!
Portland has many cute coffee shops, since the gloomy weather all you want to do is get cozy, sip a Cappuccino, which we did over and over!!!!
Here we are on the tram!! I had a coffee or green tea in my hand, almost the whole trip, it was raining and cold.
Next we wanted to go downtown and check out the cute shops, we found the coolest import shop, everything was 50% off!
Yep more food!! We Googled the best breakfast places in Portland and Mothers Kitchen came up as #1, we waited for over an hour, but the ambience, as well as the food, was well worth it!!
I ordered pumpkin pancakes!! Sooo Yummy with bananas cooked inside!
Next we heard of the Saturday Market was the place to be, Portland is full of self sufficient people! So many cool booths with natural food, hand made crafts! Super fun, it was drizzling the whole time, which was actually kinda fun!
This band made all the instruments by hand, it sounded great
Um, next project???
These two cool guys do drip coffee, it was yummy! And the guy with the barrette hat, his wife makes the clay leaf's!
Only God himself could make such an amazing color!
Wow long post!!! Time to get moving, I;m going to help my mom pick out carpet, and maybe a couch today! feels soo good to be home, with my kids, after day 2 of any trip I quickly get over my self and desire to care for my kids every need, I'm always do 10 things at once so to have allll this time to myself is appreciated in the first two day's then I'm over it! Thanks mom and dad, for seeing the need for John and I to spend time together. I pray that when I'm a grandma, I will be half the Grandparents you both are!!! Love you both soo much, Shirley
