This past weekend we took off for Portland so that Scott could run his first marathon - woohoo! All of those early morning runs he's been doing seemed to have paid off and he got a great time: 3:01! I was so proud of him. The weather was beautiful and we had a great time staying right downtown. As soon as we got there I took off straight for a few of my favorite shops that I discovered last time and ended up falling in love with this sweet coloring book at Alder & Co. Each page is a work of art in and of itself, with detailed illustrations done by Johanna Basford, known for her extremely detailed pen-and-ink work. Johanna's designs are heavily rooted in the flora and fauna that surrounded her while growing up on her parent's fish farm in rural Scotland. I am so in love with this little coloring book, I almost don't want to give it to London for her birthday on Wednesday and just selfishly color it myself!
