I hope everyone had an amazing Fourth of July! My boyfriend and I spent the day at the Portland Blues Festival on the Waterfront, which gave me the perfect excuse to bust out my new favorite sundress now that Portland’s summer has officially begun! We tromped around with thousands of others, enjoying a few beers, some amazing BBQ, and listening to live Blues. We had a few friends over to our new place to grill out and then walked back down to the waterfront to watch the fireworks. Other than an overly intoxicated redneck yelling, “Get yerself some, ‘Merica!!” every time another firework exploded in the sky, it was a great way to spend the Fourth!

After having my family in town for a week and then immediately packing, moving, cleaning by myself while Josh was back home, we finally have things settled and I’m ready to get back to work! The chaos of the move was definitely worthwhile since we both have workspaces to draw, paint, and create! I can’t wait to share some of the projects I’ve been working on with you!
