Images and you

F. footbagging with the locals

More images from Portland to share with you, this is only a fraction and I am out of time. Getting looks from Hubs saying it's time to go. We are leaving this morning and heading to Seattle where friends and more adventure awaits. Meanwhile, I know what I am missing with you and your amazing posts. I have been able to jump around a bit and find inspiration and joy, laughter and authenticity.  I am twitching from withdrawal from not being able to comment, share, and give thanks for your inspiration and honesty.  Not sure when I can catch up, but I will...

Anyway... the last photo is a wall sized ad from Levi's from their "Go Forth" campaign. The first time I saw this campaign (I hardly watch TV) was on lovely Petra's blog in this post. Thanks Petra. I am so inspired by this campaign, I just might go buy me a pair of Levi's.  No...I won't :).

If you haven't seen it, here it is. The words by the way, belong to Charles Bukowski's "The Laughing Heart". I love Charles Bukowski.

go forth my friends and much love to you
miss you much
xx oo


  1. YEAH!! We're free every afternoon/evening this week after 2pm. Hope to see you!!

  2. As always, lovely photography here. My husband came back from Portland and wanted to pick up and move there (we didn't, I like where we are). We travel a lot, and Portland was just one of those places he thought was a bit of wonderfulness where he'd like to spend all the time. You've captured it beautifully here.

  3. I love the Pie propoganda and the dogs glee at running throught the water fountains, lovely and inspiring post x

  4. beautiful pictures MJ! catch up when you have time. one needs to live also. blogging, commenting etc. can always wait : )

  5. Wonderful photography. You will enjoy Seattle ... one of my favorite places. Go forth and have fun! :D :D

  6. Gorgeous photos. Can't wait to see your Seattle pix. I lived there about 20 years ago - absolutely loved it, but I'm a New England girl at heart. But I'd love to go back for a visit! Have fun!

  7. How fun MJ.
    And don't worry about us, we'll be here when you land. But, also, thanks for sharing with us.

  9. Oh what wonderful photos...and thanks for sharing the great Levi's ad...I love when inspiration comes in surprising places!

    Safe travels dear friends!

  10. Great pictures ... the dog in the fountain and your son on the river rock bed are probably the most stricking to me this morning. Looks like you are having a blast... soak it all up. And thanks for sharing the Levi commercial... pretty neat! Much love!!

  11. Just scrolled through your Portland posts. I have read and looked at so many cool stories and pics about that place. Looks like your family is having a great time...lots of memories.

  12. I've been loving the sites from familiar lands, and look forward to Seattle pics. Any chance you're coming to the islands? Fingers crossed.
