I HEART PDX
Happy Friday! Here are some fun things happening around town this weekend and over the next few weeks. Also, if you haven’t stopped by amazing new luncheonette, MÅURICE, you should! Post haste! We stopped by last weekend and it was delicious and lovely. Kristen Murray is a massively talented pastry chef with a wealth of dreamy culinary experiences. After a few years of getting to taste her intoxicating dishes at little gatherings with friends–it’s wonderful to see her in this sweet little world she has created for us to share with her.
