alphabet soup

I like to look at houses
AND
I like to take walks.
put the two together and well,
it's kind of like eating chocolate.
or cupcakes.
or drinking your morning latte.
you get the idea.


so bright and early as the sun was just rising.
the hubby and I took a stroll through downtown Portland.


we found this as we walked...
tried to find the place, but couldn't.
(thankfully I had eaten two mini cupcakes for breakfast already, compliments of Cupcake Jones)

then we decided to head over to one of my favorite parts of town,
the Alphabet District

so I've noticed,
when I get uber-excited...
I don't tend to take the best photos.
maybe it is the because of all of the distractions...


but while strolling these beautiful streets,
it really is so easy to "get lost."
thankfully I had Josh to navigate...



and for the grand finale...
I found my vacation home in Portland.


*drooling*


see, I'm all ready to go inside and put my feet up after all that walking.
and wouldn't you know it... the house is actually on the market.

so for your viewing pleasure click on the link below:

I am so bummed you missed the VooDoo experience! Next time, you'll have to go! Love the photos and love NW ABC streets. I hope you took a stroll down NW 23rd as well... so many fun shops and things to see.

Don't give up on the donuts! If you're still here on Saturday... check out Saturday Market. From there you can hit up VooDoo donuts. It's right there. :D
