Portland Wedding

I went to my good friend Erin’s backyard wedding in Portland this weekend.  Erin looked gorgeous as always and her wedding was so intimate and fun.  Her husband Ian owns Coco Donuts, so their whole house smelled of sweet, delicious fried goodness.  As party favors, they gave out donuts and whole coffee beans roasted by the groom!  So clever.  I had trouble pulling myself away from the flowers by Espe Floral + Foliage.  Apparently I didn’t know a peony from a garden rose.  Rookie mistake.  The florist told me she purchased the garden roses on Monday and babysat them all week.  I really need to learn what goes into babysitting flowers, because my orchid died over the weekend.

I stepped aside once the photographer arrived, so you’ll have to settle for my photos of donuts and flowers.

University of Washington, Seattle

I went to Seattle this past weekend for my uncle’s funeral after he unexpectedly passed away on July 12.  A truly remarkable Renaissance Man–doctor, fisherman, boat and car builder, beekeeper, gardener, skier, golfer, and world traveler–he will be truly missed.  However, he’ll remain a constant source of inspiration that you can do anything you put your mind to (although I’m sure genetics played a part).  While in Seattle, I visited with my cousins, watched their kids in plays, played mini golf with them, and watched my cousin’s daughter play in a soccer tournament.  While I took mostly photos of family (which I am not posting), here are some photos from walking around the University of Washington and University Village in his honor.
