Spring vacation is finally here! And while I’d love to take a day or two and just be, I feel quite fortunate to be able to be traveling to both New York City and Portland over this next week. Just as quickly as the week ends, I will be moving into my flat in Portland’ Pearl, and oh, how I cannot wait to spend more time in the rainy, rose city that I love. With a book reading by Cara Black, a bit of shopping, dog walking and time to just peruse my new walkable neighborhood, I feel like a young girl anxiously waiting for Santa to arrive.
And New York City. I can’t quite believe I get to return so quickly since my last visit to a city so full of inspiration, energy and opportunity. For a bit of business and pleasure, feel free to follow me on Twitter and Instagram as I will be sharing photos I capture along the way.
On this blog this week, there was inspiration for just about any area of living simply luxuriously that piques your interest – fashion, food, reading, decor and even a checklist for having your own yard sale. Have a look:
