Thoughts on Portland

Kittens! This is the last post I’ll be writing for out Portland Trip. If you want to see the other 6 (yea, I wrote a lot of posts about it, it was just so good not to!) check out the Travel tag. Also check out my Instagram for little insights from the trip too.

On February 16th we left Portland in the morning to turn the rental car in and hop on a plane to Denver then Wichita. It was another long day of traveling, but once we got home, and I snuggled with my kitty cats, I was feeling much better. But I was also sad about leaving the beautiful state of Oregon. Portland really is a great city with tons of things to do, places to eat, you can even drive a few hours in any direction and do something fun (beaches, waterfalls, mountains, etc). I would of loved to stay long and explore more of the city and the state, but we only had six days. And in those six days we did a lot!

Here are some of the goodies and gifts I got while visiting Portland, Oregon.

First I have these two small decorative boxes that I got in Manzanita. They are handmade and I got one for me and one for my sister. I also brought my Instax Mini 8 along with me and snapped a few photos.
