some old trip photos


I was cleaning up the desktop and realized I had a whole day's worth of photos from our Portland trip that I never posted. Oops. So I thought I'd share them now and finish clearing of that desktop off mine.

We found this wonderful Swedish clothing shop called Dunderdon, that had the most amazing (mostly men's I think) workwear inspired clothing and accessories. The store itself was so pretty with rope held fixtures and industrial lighting and an array of fun gadgets, many from Hand Eye Supply (local store a few blocks down). It was impossible to leave empty handed but we discovered it towards the end of our trip so I Jeremiah only bought a notebook.
The next morning we went to breakfast at a little Scandinavian cottage called Broder. The outside was pretty modest but the line for "brunch" formed quickly and aggressively as the seating is very limited. Fortunately we were one of the first to arrive and were seated quickly. Everything was delicious and we feasted on potato cakes and abelskivers with lemon curd and jam.

I'm a little sad thinking about our trip. We had fun while we were there but reminiscing makes me think even more fondly about it and I'm sure we will go back when we can.


  1. Jen your pics are amazing. Is that one of the sea the one your husband posted for your birthday- I love it, a great image, or is it a painting? Jx

    1. I've been to Seattle & SLC and we are visting NYC for the first time in June. Hopefully Iceland someday as well.


  6. oh these pictures make me want to visit portland even more, but we're so far away from oregon right now! we just spent three weeks in new york and in the end we just wanted to come back home... but it's so good to go back to the pictures, isn't it? :)
