About a month ago Chris and I had a day off together, which is actually a little rare. We’ve been making an effort to get outside and do stuff instead of just be blobs at home. This gets easier with the change in weather, though I’ll be sad to say goodbye to hot coffee, drafty windows and a good book. Holing up inside a cafe doesn’t make sense when the sun is out – fellow Portlanders can sympathize with the need to take advantage of every bit of sunshine we can get!
I will just have to replace hot coffee with root beer, and cafes with the park. No complaints here.
The last two photos were taken in front of Title Wave, our favorite used bookstore. It was really windy that day and I wanted to capture all the falling cherry blossom petals. In no way did the photo end up how I wanted it to, but I’ll settle for an adorable picture of Chris. :)
But first, we had a little sit down at Cartola, a Stumptown-serving cafe that is conveniently situated halfway between our apartment and Title Wave. That’s my jacket in the background being an unsightly (albeit bokehlicious) mess. I don’t know what that black blob in the bottom corner is, though – most likely some part of Chris in the foreground.
