We had the most wonderful weekend in my favorite city [Portland, of course!]. We were lucky to be surrounded with great friends, family & some amazing food & wine. On Saturday it was my uncle Randy's birthday & we ventured down to Salem to celebrate! My [very talented chef] cousin James was in town from Philadelphia & he prepared an amazing tasting menu for dinner. Combined with loving family & their good friends, we had one of those evenings that you never want to end. <3

pretty flowers for our dinner hosts.
an Oregon malbec & Mo's clam chowder. only the best.
