I got the chance to meet up with a good friend today. Someone who I rarely get to see due to busy schedules and conflicting availabilities. It was so great to catch up and explore the city with someone who it is easy to start off right where we left off, months ago, last time we saw each other. Today we got to try a new restaurant for lunch in downtown Portland called South of the Border. It was an amazing Mexican restaurant with an authentic feel, they have a simple menu with four choices that are customizable but they make everything by hand and it was definitely delicious!

 We shopped and caught up over cold brew and ice cream,  I found a boutique off of SW 23rd called Sloan, never shopped there before but walking by I couldn't help but peek in and see what they have to offer. It was amazing! Everything I picked up, I loved, and I ended up leaving with some amazing pieces. I'll definitely feature them in a post in the near future! I love exploring my city and finding gems like Sloan. It makes me love my hometown even more! Unfortunately they don't have a website to shop but you can click here for Sloan locations!
