Summer, my friends, has finally arrived in Portland. I may have said summer is on its way a few times this year already, but it’s finally here!
Oblique Coffee Roasters – you would think it would be easy to find a coffee shop open at 5am, right? Maybe that’s just wishful thinking. My quest led me to Oblique, which opens at 6am. That’ll do.
Tubing on the Clackamas River – First river float of the year. Check! A fairly last minute and short trip to the river, but always worth it. There’s nothing like floating down the river in the sun. It’s like being a kid again, where all you have to worry about is whether or not you get to stop for ice cream on the way home.
Kit’s Organic – I received a little box of treats in the mail, which I promptly devoured. Attention PR companies, you can always send me food. In all seriousness, I’m happy to see Clif Bar come out with something like this. My go-to bar if I pop into Whole Foods after yoga, is a Luna bar, so always good to have more brands and flavors to choose from. My favorite thing about these fruit and nut bars, is the ingredient list: Organic Dates, Organic Cashews, Organic Almonds, Sea Salt. Four ingredients? My mom would even approve. (granola – it’s genetic)
Portland sunsets – stunning sunsets this weekend. “It’s 9pm, hurry! Run for high ground to catch it!”
Pyro in the sun – spent a sunny lunch break at Pyro Pizza enjoying my favorite pizza and the weather.
Ya Hala – still my favorite Lebanese restaurant in Portland. 8 years later and the veggie mezza still doesn’t disappoint (although I would not turn down extra baba ganoush)!
What are you happy about this week?
