I have always liked celebrating my birthday with a little travel. This year’s destination was Portland, Oregon. Serene planned a great weekend and wow, what a great town! Gorge-ous sights, some of the friendliest folks west of Minneapolis, great food (Pine State Biscuits is amazing…the soundtrack is even better than the food!), and unforgettable signs. Signs?? Yes, signs. I cannot imagine why I wouldn’t visit at least once a year. Loved it.
