Happy Things

I’m spending this weekend in Portland to visit my friend Shay! You may remember this cutie from my November Beauty of the Month interview last year. I cannot wait to see the incredible city, eat and drink my way through the Bite of Oregon festival and spend time with my Shay! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Thank you for reading! XO

Recipe coming soon for this shrimp and the marinade they used. It’s a magical dish everyone needs to make.}
