in portland!

Aug 7, 2008 | Life in Progress

mati and i hopped a plane to portland yesterday. totally happy to be here, completely outside of my daily grind. love it. we went to get haircuts and massages and oh my, vacation is lovely. have i mentioned lately how much i adore this city and how i can hardly wait to move back here in just a couple of months? i’m loving showing mati all the places, the people, the way we do things up here. we spent the nite with dear souls laini and jim – both of who have been creative mentors to me and who are doing amazing things like writing and illustrating books. today we’re heading out for more adventures and friends and then onward to the oregon coast for a few days of nourishment, community, and magic.

i’ll be back here next week with stories and photos…
all the best to you,
kelly rae

Sending much love,

    Are you really moving here? And have you lived here before? I bought one of your prints a few weeks ago and it is hanging in my (Portland) office, just off my bedroom.

    Did you get the pixie cut? They are great! Just think…no 20-30 minute hair styling required! 🙂

    Portland is fantastic.I have visited many times.
    Moving for me has always been a great oppurtunity for reinvention.

    Hi, Kelly Rae
    I love your artwork! I hope you don’t mind that I featured one of your pieces on my blog. I linked back to your blog. If you have a problem with this, just let me know and I’ll take it down. Thanks.
