the other night, as drew and i were walking home, we got to talking about how much our view of portland has improved since the weather has changed. as much as we gripe about it in the rainy months, it's hard not to fall in love with this place when it's sunny, 75 degrees + no humidity. everyone comes out of hibernation, the streets are lined with people enjoying outdoor happy hours, street fairs are abundant, and gorgeous flowers have bloomed everywhere. there's something so satisfying about walking to all of our destinations in this gorgeous weather that i will most certainly miss when summer is gone.
