i am happy to be in the land of port for a few days:
listening to christmas music on pandora,
watching artsy films with brittlor,
getting a head's start on the fun of finding gifts for my loved ones,
pedicure loveliness with my papa,
knowing all the street names,
reading the oregonian over breakfast,
taking my dogs around the loop in the park by the house,
having conversations with people who have known me for longer than four years.
i love seattle,
but it still feels like coming home to portland.
