Red polish

I Shall Paint My Nails Red

because a bit of a colour is a public service
because I am proud of my hands.
because it will remind me I'm a woman.
because I will look like a survivor.
because I can admire them in traffic jams
because my daughter will say ugh.
because my lover will be surprised.
because it is quicker than dyeing my hair.
because it is a ten-minute moratorium.
because it is reversible.

Oregon coast and Tillamook Factory

So much cheese.

 Josh had the great idea to buy some of it to bring with crackers for a snack on the beach.

After this visit, and seeing San Francisco last year, I'm thinking the North western coast puts Southern California to shame.

Portland: Voodoo Doughnut

This was the first place we went in Portland. Well known for it's maple bars with bacon, and all sorts of other bizarre recipes. I don't even like doughnuts, but I thought it was delicious!

My best friend's wedding

This was such a big day in our lives. Really, it seams like we were just 5 years old making forts in the yard and selling lemonade. Seems like we were just in Kindergarten, crushing on the same boy. Or again in Jr. high, or dating the same boys in high school. It's the end of an era and the beginning of a new one. Like I said at the dinner/reception, if I didn't love Peter so much this would be hard. But Pete is the greatest so it is quite simple and easy to give my bestie away. I love you Bacon!
