spring in portland.

ft. our neighborhood

Spring in Portland, OR is seriously one of our favorite things about living here.

The colors of all the flowers are incredible and the weather is sooo amazing. We take neighborhood walks almost every day and I finally remembered to bring our camera to capture some of it! Also, there are these super cute ‘mini libraries’ where you can borrow a book or drop one off along your walk. 😍

We have a massive bush of hydrangeas on the side of our house with a bench in front of it and it’s always so nice to sit out there! The blues are something else. 💙

We just cut this little one to put in a small vase for our kitchen. 😊

Spring: a lovely reminder of how beautiful change can truly be.

love at crater lake.

Crater Lake is known for its blues… but when you’re there at sunrise or sunset, the colors you get to see are so unbelievably magical.

We had already planned to wake up early, but did not expect to witness the most magnificent sunrise. We felt like we had the whole place to ourselves because no one was around us. This place is also very special to us because it was the last road trip we were able to take Layla on before she passed away.

Experiences like this always remind us to appreciate and love the little things in life. ❤️

Look at those colors!! 😍


Our little family at sunset.


This viewpoint was perfect. It felt like the lake wrapped all around you.


Sometimes you gotta hide behind a bush to get those ~*angles*~ of Wizard Island. Photography can be a pretty funny hobby.


The girls and the moon.


Mount Thielsen in all of its glory in the early morning.


Sunsets here are pretty darn great, too.

This grand show is eternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never all dried at once; a shower is forever falling; vapor is ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal sunset, eternal dawn and gloaming, on sea and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls.
John Muir

If Crater Lake isn’t on your bucket list yet, it should be!
