Portlandia / by Julia Walck

It was my birthday, (whoa, already a month ago), so Jackson and I went to Portland.

Let me tell you, it was a much needed vacation. Vintage shopping, brew-cycling (highly recommended), hiking, zoo-going, aimless walking, and lots of eating/drinking. 

Here's my trip via photos in a nutshell.
