Actually, it's escape from a long grey winter and spring....
As a true Portlander I made like a bird and got the hell out of town for a few days. Thanks to a fantastic client and project, I spent some time in Florida recently (have I ever told you I love what I do? I love what I do!). And while it was a short trip, and one I mainly spent working, don't think I didn't enjoy every single bit of sunshine, warmth and loveliness. I brought you back some photos...
Bouganvilla is such a common plant in warmer areas, yet so exotic to those of us from the north.
This is called color. We don't see much of it in Portland during our dreary season.
Warm weather was made for mojitos.
Shared desserts with the 5 fantastic women I work with on this project. Before:
Morning walks around the lagoon, in the sunshine, short sleeves, and sunglasses.
