my only resolution this year is to love the hell out of portland. there's been talk of drew and i moving back to new england at the end of this coming summer, so i've been drafting a portland bucket list of sorts. since i'm a creature of comfort, i tend to go back to the same restaurants, do the same activities—but i'm hoping that this bucket list will ensure that whenever i leave portland, i'll feel that i experienced it fully. i may share the list here, or i may secretly chip away at it. regardless, the sentiment behind it is to pay homage to this strange, beautiful city that has captured my heart over the last few years.
