My son outside of the Bye & Bye 2012


At Portobello Vegan Trattoria in Portland there is a beautiful mural by local artist, Jill Bliss. I’ve been fortunate enough to meet her a few times and even go to her house for a clothing trunk show last year. In December husband and I celebrated 20 years of knowing each other with dinner at Portobello and also in December I bought a handmade paper necklace from Jill at Crafty Wonderland. I feel pretty lucky to know her, to support her and live in such a cool city. XOXO

Here I am wearing my new paper foliage with a Rodarte for Target faux shearling shrug and a Free People sparkling dress:

Here are two pictures from Portobello the night of our anniversary dinner with a teensy peak of Jill’s work:

If you haven’t been to Portobello you are missing out. Beautiful inside, lovely service and wonderful food. XOXO

Two days before our (bigger) family Thanksgiving the three of us went out to vegan trattoria, Portobello here in Portland for an early feast aka little family Thanksgiving. It did not disappoint. yummmmmm
