Yesterday I had one of those perfect days. It wasn't a crazy day, and wasn't totally out of the ordinary, but it was one of those days that's filled with a lot of things that I love...thus making it one of those perfect days. I think perfect days are like perfect moments...they are not planned or coordinated...they just sort of catch you in a moment of happy bliss doing something totally ordinary. Here are some of the things that made up my perfect yesterday...
Boating (I have yet to get a picture of me actually wake boarding, so a picture on the boat will have to suffice. And...YES, I have actually been wakeboarding, I'm not making it up despite the lack of photos. Just look at my hair for proof).
Napping by the pool (not pictured for obvious reasons)
Dinner at Rose's (one of the MANY amazing Portland Restaurants). I had a grilled cheese sandwich and tomato soup (one of my favorite combos). Preceded and followed by shopping on NW 23rd, which happens to be one of my favorite places on the planet. Very charming and cute, GREAT shopping (tons of little boutiques with reasonably priced and very cute things...the manager at Sloan now knows me by name, "didn't you try on those shoes last week???"), yummy restaurants, and some of the best people watching.
And, at the suggestion of Gamine, we finished the night off with Miss Potter, a delightful little movie that I highly recommend.
To top it all off, the weather was GORGEOUS...beautiful blue skies, warm, with a nice breeze. Who ever said the weather in Portland is miserable? (please no comments about winters in Portland or the alleged "rainy season". I'll believe it when I see it...which will likely happen in October...stay tuned).
