I thought it was about time to post some long overdue link lovin’. I feel like I’ve been completely consumed by moving to a new home and a bit disconnected from other people’s worlds. I don’t like that feeling! Thanks so much for visiting my blog and thanks so much for all the comments lately. I have to say–getting comments really makes my day brighter every time. I’m really looking forward to having a little more time to spend commenting on the posts that I read throughout the week!
Also, “hello!!!” to my new readers. Through some nice mentions from lovely people I’ve gained a few new followers and I’m so happy you’re all here. Being so distracted by what’s been going on at home lately, I feel like I have lovely visitors at my blog house and I’ve run out of ice and don’t have enough chairs for everyone to be comfortable. I’ll be a better blog hostess soon–I swear! Thanks so much for hanging out with me here–it really does mean so much. ♥
Now on with the image and link love! I’ll start with a couple of great Portland events:
♥ Chelsea is offering amazing flower classes. There will even be delicious snacks! This lady is gifted with blooms–everyone will learn volumes in a gorgeous atmosphere.
Lots of food on my mind this week. Drooling…
♥ A VERY delicious cocktail recipe.
♥ Megan made such a pretty doily cake.
♥ Recipe for chocolate butter. Ummm… fainting!
♥ Erin wrote a post about my favorite brunch in PDX. I already freaked out on her for spilling the beans.
OK. Just a little more food?
♥ I’m excited to try Emily’s lemon curd recipe.
♥ I want them all. Jam and marmalade extravaganza!
♥ Dear Cheese, I love you and miss you. XO Jen
OK! Here comes the non-food waterfall of links…
♥ Look at the dreamy thing Miss Caitlin Rose did!
♥ AAAAAHHH!!!! OMG OMG OMG…. this makes me want to go camping, but is simultaneously the reason why I am terrified of camping. Maybe for the backyard? Thanks, Sarah.
♥ I need to purge and purchase some makeup. I LOVE this post!
♥ Matt made some beautiful belts!

♥ Kristian’s wow of Waugh.
♥ House of Filly! Check out Emily’s amazing “green home tour” on Apartment Therapy’s Re-Nest!
♥ Garance has been so funny for the past few months! I love all of her posts.
♥ I loved this constructive criticism post from Jane. I’ve had a chance to sit with it and have kept it in mind. Really, the list of amazing people that I want to write about is too long for me to feel like spending time posting about products, brands, businesses, etc that I have a sub par experience with. I’d rather talk with the business/person directly, come to a resolution and be done with it. I typically don’t end up writing about these businesses at all because I want to move on and focus on other people. However, there are the occasional exceptions. How about you?
♥ I know I mentioned it recently, but I really do love this post from Hannah regarding the bummer of a post by Scott Shaw (The Sartorialist).
♥ A touch of pink! I adore the pink kitty figurines.
♥ An interview with design lovely, Ana. I can’t understand the entire interview, but I can understand enough to know that I wish we could hang out!
♥ Oh! Anabela looks so pretty in her lovely skirt and pink lipstick.
♥ Pretty in pink, pink, pink, pink, pink!
♥ Dans les rues de Rome en février. I faint again.
