  1. This so beautiful! You definitely convey that feeling of being in a new place and trying to make sense of it.
    Also, I love your expression while doing the tick check – very relatable :)

  2. I’ve lived in Portland my whole life, it isn’t perfect at all, but its home, and the nature is absolutely stunning. Do yourself a favor this summer and try blackberry picking at thousand acre parks, its beautiful, bountiful, and full of friendly dogs. I hope PDX treats you well <3
