happy birthday to..

me :)!
today was my birthday!!


it was rather mellow and quiet.
my hubby went back to Canada last Sunday for a week worth of work left up there.
so, I am all by myself here in Portland on my birthday :(
well,,, at least my little girl is with me!

I got a lot of messages from family and friends.
so that was very sweet.


oh, and I got an unexpected raspberry tart and card from our friend's family who we're staying with right now.
it was very sweet of them.
I was going to share the raspberries with little L, but she didn't really dig and tried a little bite on one.


and,,,
we're still 'home' hunting in Portland...
it's been pretty hard to find a family/kid-friendly place for rent that suites us.
although, this family is really nice to us and offering a place to crash,
it been pretty stressful(for me anyway)...
trying to stay positive!

Wait a minute - how did I miss all this!? I have been pretty absent from blogging and keeping up on everyone's events... you are in Portland and I did not even say "Welcome!". Bad me. If you get a chance, stop by the shop - we're downtown @10th and Taylor 11-6 every day except Sunday. How are you liking Portland?? I feel like all over South East PDX is pretty family friendly; also little areas in NE PDX. There are so many little neighborhoods here - I am still discovering and exploring all of them! Happy late birthday!

thanks! I've been wanting to stop by your store, but it's been just too crazy and busy trying to find a place all by myself right now... I promise to come visit when we settle in!!
otherwise, it's been great! yes, so many nice little neighborhoods here! and we're thinking of N/NE/SE PDX, maybe around Hawthorn, Mississippi or Alberta Arts areas.
