It is 100+ degrees.
The only things I have been able to stomach are shrimp cocktail and green salads.
Oh, and a killer float of cinnamon gelato and cream soda. Tastes like rice pudding but better!
I think i'll try to find a different salad option tonight. Maybe #48?
Toss roughly chopped dandelion greens (or arugula or watercress) with chopped preserved lemon, chickpeas, crumbled feta and olive oil.

I just got back from Ohio. My grandparents have been married for 60 years. That is cause for celebration.
There were multiple funny conversations. Among them was this:
Cousin: Can believe you have been married that long?!?
Grandma: Ohhhhhh, yes.
Cousin: Grandma you're supposed to say no!
Grandma: Feels like its been longer.
She doesn't mince words.
One of the best parts about it were these cape cod honeymoon pictures my aunt had digitized from slides.
A couple things of note.
1. My grandma was a total hottie.
2. The dress and bathing suit are fabulous.
3. That is finally a shade of red lipstick I can pull off. Coral-y, orange-y red. Subtle but gorgeous. Buying tomorrow.

I have had a ridiculous week. This week has included: 2 site launches, SEO content class, branding someone with their spirit animal, meetings, meetings, meetings....
Now I am off to Las Vagas followed by Toledo, OH for 11 days. Dear God.
In celebration of being done and in great mourning of my upcoming travels, JP and I treated ourselves to our new favorite thing: Burgers at Le Pigeon.
What? Hour and a half wait for the bar? Ok, we'll be splitting a bottle of wine at The Farm.
Followed by more wine. And burgers.

I did it.
After 8 years of plotting and planning I got the nerve to put a fork from my grandmother's fancy silver set (used for holidays only) on my arm.
It'll be softer and lighter after it heals. I love it.
P.S. Brian at Scapegoat did the work and he was super friendly, gentle and crazy talented. I highly recommend him to anyone in portland looking to get work done.
