Ayayayaya…. New York. My home away from home. There are so many things I love about it and one of which is the water. I know that kind of sounds gross to start off with but you can’t beat the east coast sea for the heat! As beautiful as the PNW coast is,  the water is pretty baltic. So when it came up about booking a trip out to Long Island, I had the ticket paid for within minutes. Continue reading “Long Island, New York 07/20 – 02/24”

Kicking off in Glacier Park

Aaaaaalrighty. FINALLY I’ve given a minute to catch up on the blog. This has been quite possibly the busiest, craziest summer I’ve ever had. I spent all year talking about how excited I was for an Oregon summer, yet I only spent a handful of weekends here. Anyhow – I’m going to kick off a series of posts with my first trip of the season, Montana. I can take zero credit for planning this trip. Himself did a mighty job co-ordinating it all from getting to Montana to the trails we were going to hike. We decided to drive and it normally takes around 10hrs to get to the west side of Glacier Park. We stopped half way in Spokane, WA though at the Davenport Lusso to break up the journey.

Memorial Weekend

I can’t believe that a year has passed already since my move to Portland. Time has gone so fast and I can nearly say to the hour of the day what I was doing this time last year (chilling out with my cousin in Newport! 🙂 ). I had moved here right on Memorial weekend and my timing couldn’t of been better. Last year I did the Rose Festival thing and drank my way through all of the breweries the city had to offer. 2017’s weekend went slightly different.

Tedx Portland

Since I joined Inavero, I’ve been waiting to go to Tedx in Portland. Rosemarie, my old manager in Adecco had told me about it before and I was really looking forward to seeing some speakers. The event definitely did not disappoint. I was warned to have tissues at the ready because the day itself is an emotional rollercoaster.

Ted began in 1984 as a conference where speakers came and spread beautiful ideas in 18 minutes or less. Tedx is community based with a Ted-like experience. It first came to Portland 7 years ago and has built a crowd from 700 to 3000 filling out the Keller Auditorium. I honestly didn’t know what to expect but the day went seamlessly. I was skeptical of the organizers  ability to sit, feed and water 3000 people but they managed it doing a great job. Continue reading “Tedx PDX”
