august is here! where did july go?

seriously! where has the summer gone? the sister/bestie tied the knot last weekend. i'm still trying to get over my wedding hangover and i'll post photos soon. 

last sunday afternoon, after nursing my actual wedding hangover and cleaning up the beach house, i road tripped down to portland to visit my friend alison. not only did i pick up my philosophy goodies from her,  but we went to canon beach! i remember going there as a little kid after visiting my dad's mom, it was nice to come back as an adult and truly enjoy how beautiful the beach is.

i love the ocean, i could stare at it for hours and not get bored. i wouldn't be able to move too far away from the waves and salty air.
after running into the pacific a few times, we met some nice strangers on the beach and ended up grabbing a beer with them. one of the things that i love about alison is that she has this knack for making friends in the oddest of places. i hope it's rubbing off on me!

before heading back to pdx for the day, i had to get some salt water taffy before leaving. it's not a beach trip without it! the little shop we found, bruce's candy shop, had so many flavors! my personal favorites - pb and j and pomegranate. 

before leaving on tuesday, we stopped for brunch. i can't remember the name of the place, but it was one of the cutest little restaurants that i've ever been too. (it was in the pearl district) it felt a little weird going out for breakfast on a tuesday, but hey, que syrah!

looking at this picture makes we want another plate of french toast. with blueberries. and a glass of orange juice.
