I'm incredibly fortunate to work for a company with offices in beautiful places and that my managers are willing to send me out to visit these places. I was able to work (and play) in Portland, Oregon last week thanks to the good people at Squarespace.
It's weird to visit a place for the first time and feel completely at home. Portland is a trendy but easy-going city full of hiking sneakers and flannel shirts, so I fit right in.
Over the weekend, I got a chance to explore the Columbia River Gorge and Forest Park, thanks to some awesome ladies (shout out to Amanda and Ariela) who volunteered to show me around. If I wasn't already in love with Portland, these trips into the woods definitely sealed the deal.
