Weekend Reading 9.21

Happy Saturday, friends! I just got back from working as a photographer's assistant for a wedding and I. Am. Beat. This week was a long one spent checking off some big to-dos, the most exciting of which is I finally pulled the trigger and bought a car. Chris and I have been sharing one car for months, and while I wish owning two wasn't necessary, with his schedule it absolutely is. So, now that I have a way to get around outside of my easily walkable radius, tomorrow I'm planning on taking my paddleboard out to enjoy the second wave of summery weather that's hit Portland. I can't believe it's already the end of September – this year has flown by at an incredible pace, but I'm also really excited about the next few weeks. My brother is coming to town – the last time I saw him was in 2017 – and to be honest, I'm just really looking forward to fall and everything that comes with it. Apple picking? Yes please. Fall hikes? Sign me up. I'm ready for all of it.
