Little gifts my husband returned with... he knows me well... some local coffee and a special beer to try! It seems he fell for Portland the same way I did.
Notice the words on the Vixen Coffee Blend - I arise in the morning torn between the desire to save the world and a desire to savour it, which makes it hard to plan the day...
The beans are from a small roaster on the island of Vashon, an Island not far from Seattle which I had the good luck of living on for a spell.
Fingers crossed there is a job opening in one of our fields and we find ourselves in Portland one day!
Till then its the start of summer holidays... long days of occupying the wee ones..
