The past few weeks have been extremely busy socially and I’m finding myself struggling to keep up! I know that waiting for life to calm down is a bit of a waste of time because in my experience, it only seems to pick up the pace! I’m doing my best to keep up with comments, emails, and questions so hang in there with me!
Last Saturday we attended the after party for Bon Appetit’s Feast Portland event held at Cooper’s Hall Winery and Taproom. It’s a gorgeous and spacious venue that actually keeps the winery and taproom open to let guests have a closer look at the wine making process. Since Sailor Jerry Rum was one of the sponsors, they invited my husband, Josh, to tattoo a few Sailor Jerry flash designs on after party-goers as sort of a ‘party favor.’ People were completely bewildered to see tattoos happening at a food and drink festival, but they loved it all the same. Thank you again to Paul for having us and all of the amazing people we met while there!
My friend, Britnee, moved into her new place on Monday so Josh and I went out for a little day-date. First up.. coffee and food at Pambiche, a little Cuban restaurant that serves up the best mochas I’ve ever had and even better food! I’ve never been to Cuba to sample their cuisine, but I have to imagine that Pambiche is keeping things pretty damn authentic to recipes from Cuba. After that we headed over to Pix Patisserie so I could FINALLY try a macaron. Probably the best and worst decision of my life.. I now understand what all the hype is about and I can easily see myself devouring an entire box on the couch in lieu of going to the gym!
We also had the Bostons for a few days which was perfect timing with the weather change. Portland finally decided fall was here and it’s been great snuggling up with the pups during these cool days. The cooler weather also brought on a slew of new ideas for October, so if you guys are ready for it… let the Halloween cooking and crafting begin! Tomorrow I’ll be sharing a fall-themed drink at Dream A Little Bigger and Saturday will be a DIY accessory that’s perfect for Halloween!
Have you all made the transition to fall yet? What are you looking forward to the most this season?
