Beauty around every corner. And crepes. #paris

The bistro ritual speaks to me: the service, the pace, the food. I lunched alone yesterday (this was course one) and watched people coming and going from the metro station across the street. Eating my way through this glorious city. Slowly. #paris

Paris, you have my heart. ❤️

Went on a gorgeous run yesterday in Bristol through a forest filled with bluebells and wild garlic. Just counteracting the massive amounts of beer I’ve been consuming! The UK has been so good to me. 🇬🇧

I had the best time telling Londoners about Portland beer yesterday! I’m here with an incredible group of Portland peeps, including @draplin @ziamccabe @carloscollective @wearewildfang @jeffmorgen for a @travelportland pop up. My job was to bring the beer! So you can blame me for the influx of Londoners at Portland breweries this summer.

Have you seen a brewery like this before? NOPE, didn’t think so. Head brewer Georgia Young showed me around Fullers today. We talked about how many pints fit in their mash tuns, spring barley, this insane wisteria plant, the art of making cask ales, and the challenges of being mothers. What a great honor it was to meet her.

Portland, you’re so moody broody unpredictable, and I love that about you.💞 Not pictured: the Technicolor blossoms and flowers that are everywhere right now.

I love BUBBLES. With truffled popcorn, okay, yes. I love that, too.
