What I am reminiscing about?? My Portland trip ….that just comes to tell you…is that we are so in need of a VACATION around here in my house. Today, I will recap a few things about Portland that I just LOVE. I am so glad that I got a chance to visit Portland Oregon!! Honestly, I would have never picked this state or city to vacation with my family. But NOW…..I think my kids would love it out there..the state is beautiful!!

I left my house at 5:00 am on Thursday …without kids or husband. My first trip ever without my kids!!! We had a layover in Vegas so we call grabbed a bite to eat at the airport at this Mexican restaurant.
