Life is something to be CELEBRATED, and I try to have that attitude each day. I want to feel fulfilled and do the things in life that make me smile. That includes working hard, dreaming big, and setting goals. Recently, I have gotten serious with myself about my goals for the future and where I see myself in ten years. As cliche as that is, it’s an important thought. Am I making progress each day towards something that will be long lived or contribute to my future? It’s never too early or too late to envision your future and go after it. This 22nd year will be passion driven and hopeful.
There is nothing like walking around Portland on a sunny day. My birthday was super relaxed and just perfect. A few photos to share along the way :))))
^^ PRASAD. My top choice for lunch. A raw, vegan cafe that shares it’s space with a yoga studio. I am not vegan but this cafe makes me think I could be. It ALWAYS sounds good, and makes me feel good. Their brown rice/quinoa bowls are my favorite and I like to pair it with their fresh juice, Melody.
^^ It’s a rule to eat cake and make a wish on your birthday. Stopped by Saint Cupcake for these bad boys and they were delicious.
If you live in Portland, you’ve probably been to Pittock Mansion. It’s a beautiful spot to see the city light up as the sun is going down (when it’s not cloudy). Not only does it have a great view, but there are pretty flowers surrounding it and well maintained trails nearby. This is an all time favorite spot and I loved ending the day here. It was even cool enough for sweaters and beanies.. Fall i’m ready for you!
