Luckily we managed to come at the perfect time of year when Portland was nothing but sun and clear skies. Absolutely perfect.  As I mentioned previously, the majority of our trip was spent in excess over food, beer, cats, coffee, and boys. It's true, really.  Street corners were heavily concentrated with really quaint cafes, bars, or coffee shops fluttering with friendly felines and pups.  My kind of town.
Three days, four boys, one city; it makes for an interesting trip, but I'd do it all over again in a heartbeat.
I've never been much of a supporter of having friends dispersed throughout the states...but it's actually nice.  They grant a valid reason to take a trip...or two. Next up, SF for a good week.

Awesome! Love the blonde and I'm so jealous that you went to Portland. I want to move there and I've never even been!

Lovely photos, definitely makes me want to visit Portland one day! Having friends from other cities and states is always nice, I find that I hold lasting friendships (for over 10 years, mainly through the internet) even though we rarely get to see each other. And yes, it gives us a reason to take trips when we can :)

By the way, what lens did you use for these photos? Bokeh is always on my mind, haha.
