Yes, that's right, I'm currently taking in the sights and sounds of Portland, Oregon! I'm a big girl and I'm doing a presentation at a national conference. I also plan on eating lots of donuts.
On Thursday, I'll fly into Nashville, where Matt will join me for my best friend's wedding weekend, and there will be much rejoicing. After the wedding festivities, we will drive down to my hometown, where Millie will be awaiting us at her grandparent's house.
|There will most definitely be a repeat of this photo shoot. Hello, Christmas card picture!|
|I discovered this magical pork benedict in New Orleans. I can't wait to see what Portland and Nashville have in store for me!|
- I heard "America's Sweetheart" by Elle King on AltNation the other day, and I was immediately hooked. I absolutely love her voice, but I definitely needed something new after an entire spring/summer of hearing nothing but "Exes and Ohs," (awesome song at first, not so awesome after the one billionth play).
- Since I'm heading to Nashville, I figured I should add an all time classic from my girl, Loretta. Obviously, I had to include a song from the show Nashville too. (Also, definitely thinking about Hayden Panettiere and hoping she's able to work through everything she's dealing with right now. I'm so terrified of the prospect of Postpartum Depression, and I'm sure it means a lot to plenty of women to see her stand up and seek help.)
- Kodaline's latest album came out earlier this year, and I keep finding new songs to love. "Coming Alive" is my current favorite.
- New Adele!!! Perfect timing--I love it when I have new music for my travels!
Enjoy the playlist, friends!
All the love from Portland,
