I love spring for all its beautiful flowers, but especially magnolias. There are already so many of them blossoming around Portland! At the International Rose Test Garden, you can find all three of my favorite spring flower varieties: magnolias, cherry blossoms, and camellias. Read more about why spring sessions will rock your world by clicking here. Let’s go make some lovely, colorful photos together!
I love seeing the city on foot. I used to walk everywhere. I’d walk to work early in the morning, then school, then finally back home late at night. I’d walk to yoga, to the rose gardens, to the grocery store. Walk, walk, walk. I’d walk just to let go of my day. Walking was a form of therapy. Lately, I haven’t been walking much. But last week, Ben and I walked to the east side via the Burnside Bridge and back home via the Hawthorne Bridge, where we saw a double rainbow and got poured on. This week we walked to the east side via the Broadway Bridge, and we returned to the west side over the Steel Bridge while getting to see the prettiest moon shift from day to night. Both journeys were taken after having somewhat difficult mornings/afternoons, and both days ended so well after our walk. So here are my two views of the Steel Bridge from our walk this week. It’s such a gift to be able to see the city at this pace.
