You guessed it, back again with another travel guide. This time around I went to a place I’m embarrassed to say, I’ve never been to before. Being a lover of wine and the Pacific Northwest I’m not sure why I never made it to Washington wine country, but all that has changed. I’m so excited […]

Brunch in Portland is quite the event. There are SO many tried and true brunch favorites in town. I always am looking to try the newest brunch menus, but that comes at a cost…waiting in line. Trust me when I say D is reluctant (at best) to wait in line for breakfast. It’s never an […]
