I had a little picnic in the park on Sunday with my friends Rebecca and Graham. Rebecca and I moved to portland together exactly five years ago today! It's amazing to me, it's gone by so quickly, and I still feel so lucky to live in a place this lovely.
This photo is one I took five years ago from the top of Mt. Tabor, a beautiful park here in town (the mountain is actually an extinct volcano). I bet this is the first time I climbed up there. Since then I walked up it almost every day for three years, until I moved to my new place in a different neighborhood. I love the view of the city from there, so many trees!
