Friendspiration – Portlandia Adventure

Pinterest

Dear Diary,

If you didn’t know August 1st, was National Girlfriends Appreciation Day. Luckily, I happened to catch an MSN headline, or else, I too, would have missed it. This, like National Pie and Tequila Day seem to be social media born holidays; giving us a new hashtag and subject to snap. I mean #blogger, #fitness and #shirtlessBieber can only be used so much…I get it.  However, as much as I have scoffed at the ridiculous celebrations, I feel like celebrating your friends is actually a good one.

One of my best friends from college, Lauren Amiri, also, happens to be a tremendously talented photographer. Unfortunately, we don’t always have time to catch up; she lives in Chicago and I, in LA. However, we do like to check in from time to time, and like they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. So, when she sent these amazing pictures of her trip to Portland, I was transported and inspired… I might even dare to hashtag #friendspiration. Though, it’s a couple weeks past the, “official day,” to appreciate your friends. I think it’s never too late or too early to start recognizing your friends for their talents…and seriously, who knew Portlandia was this beautiful??!

This is my absolute favorite, it reminds of the start of a great mystery novel.

I’ve officially added Portland, Oregon on my Ortbiz, inexpensive ticket alert.

Lavender fields, my new favorite thing… I wanted to do my engagement photos in one, but Max couldn’t bear the thought of taking pictures in a field of flowers, wasn’t quite manly enough for him. Who knew?!?
