things i love

So a week or two ago I decided to spruce up my About Me section - because I had nothing better to do with my life, evidently. Anyway, I wanted to give people a better idea of what they will find when they come to my blog and also give them a little taste of my favorite things. I thought making a collage would do just that. It also made me feel like I was back in 8th grade. Collages were my jam. 

It shows my love: 

//for music 
//for fitness
//for coffee and food
//for my future home that will someday be filled with industrial design (take notes, Bradley)
//and most importantly it shows my love for this great city of mine that has so much to offer. I am having a love affair with Portland and I want everyone to know. 

These are the things that keep me excited to blog. They help keep me creative. They help keep me active and more than anything, they help me experience new things, so I can come back and tell you guys about them.

Your blog constantly pushes Portland to the top of my "to visit" list. I've always wanted to go, but you push it higher and higher all the time!

I am pretty sure I had collages of my collages in middle school! I had them in my locker and on my bedroom walls. This freaking rocks!

Your about me section looks wonderful! Way cooler than mine. In fact, you are making me look bad. I am going to need you to take that shit down.

Yes to industrial design, BIG YES to coffee all the time, and hopefully another big yes to Portland in 2015. Digging the about page :)

Industrial design. <3 If I could buy everything from Restoration Hardware, I would.

I loved making collages! When cut out letters from magazines wasn't so creepy! Did you ever have a clear binder cover that you would decorate with magazine cutouts and photos?

Allie R said...

Girl, I'm still all about collages! That picture of you and Bradley on your about me page is so cute!

Chasing Elephants said...

Collages and exposed brick. Yes please! :)

MacKensie said...

I love this. And I love you. And maybe I'll make a collage of bloggers I love.

Meg Henning said...

coffee yes and being in portland i assume that would be a love, if not do you have to live outside the city limits if you don't love coffee?

Jess said...

AVETTS AND COFFEE <3 <3 <3 HAVING HEART PALPITATIONS OVER THE PERFECTION.

Lauren said...

Can you please send a memo to the Avett Brothers to come to Houston because apparently the 4th largest city is not on their radar. Your about me is adorable. I want to make mine shorter because no one wants to read all my words when they barely know me!
