A Whirlwind End to a Great 2013!

Wow! The last two months of 2013 just flew by...luckily, I was out exploiting life!

(Or at least trying to...)


Thanksgiving was spent with friends in San Francisco - love us some travel.

We enjoyed great company and explored a new city!

The weather held up pretty well, as we journeyed around town.

Berkeley, San Francisco, rides on BART, a ferry ride, a bus ride over the Golden Gate Bridge, a walk from Golden Gate Bridge to the Ferry Terminal (a very, very long walk), a walk through Chinatown, and new restaurants!


December brought more delicious restaurants in the Portland area - Andina and Biwa (one of our favorites)! - and lots of time with friends and family.

We ate at Andina for our Christmas Eve dinner (we were very lucky to get right in with no reservations, the next 40 people were not as lucky!).

Christmas Day was originally a breakfast with good friends, but gradually turned into an all day event - again, lucky us!

Family arrived shortly after Christmas and they're here through the holidays. We excited to show them our favorite Portland sites and foods.  (Hot springs, zoo, and Biwa have already been included.)


Who knows what 2014 will bring...okay, I have some ideas...but to everyone else...

Have an amazing new year of adventure, laughter, and exploiting life!!!

Yours in exploiting life!
