I hope when you were in Portland you went to Powell’s (that is wasn’t too big and bright)…drinking out of my Powell’s mug right now…
Hope you’re well wherever you are right now in your US travels…

i feel ya stephanie. i’m glad you have so many loving friends and family to bounce around to and make your stay as enjoyable as it can be.

and i love love your photos. thank you for sharing them with all of us.

“what Hannah showed you of Kansas City” : that paragraph is amazing. and your pictures show those “huge, giant hearts” so well. hope the rest of your “travels” at home are as wonderful as that weekend!
