my lately



{for 2017}


{the tiniest bit of snow}



 {a visitor in phlly; a birthday dinner}



since the presidential results came out in november, the world has been a hectic place. december, january, and the beginning of this month have all felt similar -- lots of protest-watching, lots of hoping, lots of wishing. it's crazy how your life (and social media feeds) can feel like a huge bubble, so separate from reality. looking forward to a few trips planned in the coming months.

portland in october


{northwest, downtown}


{to the coast: cannon beach and ecola state park}


{around town // witches castle on lower macleay trail in forest park}

based on my love for all things california, there was a pretty good chance that i was going to fall in love with the pacific northwest. fall i did -- for the single drip coffee, the artisan doughnut, the honey lavender ice cream, the flight of strawberry-flavored cider. the coastline was pretty nice too.  

we stayed in the northwest district of the city, within walking distance to downtown, in the most chic air bnb that housed a trio of "creatives". as we were leaving one morning, our host gestured to the cameras hung around our necks. "are you guys photographers?" he asked. "um we like photography lol haha bye" we murmured as we quickly shuffled out the door.
