"Christmas" Photos

 The Boy and I had our Annual Holiday Photoshoot a few weeks back. And by that I mean we've never done it before and we just used my own camera and it was pretty much a big, ol' joke.  But honestly, walking around downtown on a cold winter day with no agenda, taking pictures and exploring areas is always, always, always up my alley. The big tree above makes a visit every December to our "Pioneer Square" - which is colloquially referred to as "Portland's Living Room" as it's central to the main downtown shops, lots of food and in the heart of the Financial District. We made our way from there to the Portland Art Museum to the Keller Auditorium until we found ourselves enjoying scrumptious Oysters and Calamari at Southpark. In the words of one of my favorite lyricists ever: "I gotta say it was a good day."

Christmas is a'coming, friends. I wish you a wonderful, wonderful weekend soaking it in- whether that means you're in the cold up North, or in the blazing sun like some gals down Unda'

I'll be back with a post on Monday :)

Seriously, your guys babies will be the cutest thing ever!!! I die!
You guys look gorgeous, your city looks beautiful in the background. I so want to visit Portland one day, next year. Goal for next year, travel up & down the US, other than NYC of course.

...I thought about you today, I went coat shopping, came home with nothing. My mom was picking out the ugliest coats ever, I kept saying "Caitlin won't approved". You my dear have the best coasts ever. Where I have none, & everything I go to NYC in the winter time I go coat shopping, but always come home empty handed. (& then I end up wearing my sister's puffy/North Face jackets, which are of course not cute.)

If I am not on blogger before Christmas, Merry, Merry Christmas Caitlin!

Hope you have a great oldnavy Caitlin! You did a great job taking the photos and Downtown Portland is amazing from the photos Ive seen from you.

Aww these photos are great, me and PC have never done this but I really think we need to.. though here people only tend to use picture cards with their kids... which is sad, us normal size people can be pretty cute too! Plus I love the text you put on yours!

Very jealous of your wintery Christmas, though it's going to be 100 here on Sunday and I have big plans to spend the day on the beach!
