I posted the first installment of engagement photos here. With just 3 weeks to go until the big day, I thought I would blog more wedding-related posts. This photoshoot was our second look and destination, and we literally just drove on a road with our photographer until we saw this beautiful wildflower field and stopped to take pictures. I also love how these photos turned out, and that each location has such a different feel. Another huge thanks to our awesome, fearless photographer who trucked with us all day!

Tasty n Sons - Portland, OR

We're lucky to be a few hours drive from Portland, so a few weekends ago we did a mini getaway trip there. Most of this trip consisted of hunting down food spots, which is one of our favorite adventures. We heard so many things about Tasty n Sons so we had to stop by for brunch.

Chocolate potato doughnut with crème anglaise.

Griddled bacon wrapped dates with maple syrup and almond.

Sautéed spinach with sunny side up egg.

Auntie Paula's French toast with mixed-berry maple and whipped cream.

Moroccan chicken hash with harissa cream and over easy egg.

We're homeowners!

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have already heard the news. Here we are outside of our new townhouse in Capitol Hill, our favorite neighborhood! I've been awful at consistently blogging lately because of balancing grad school, wedding planning, and house buying. After over a month of craziness, I can finally check the latter of the list. We absolutely love our place and can't wait to start decorating it. I'm excited to add a home decor section to this blog, it's one of my other loves. :)
