See You Soon FL.

"The time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time" -Bertrand Russell.-

Between sliding down the snowy face of a mountain strapped to a board and Sunday kickball games, Portland has again exceeded my expectations. And while I've enjoyed the whirlwind of fresh fun activities associated with life here, I'm feeling ready for my Floridian excursions this summer.

I'm looking forward to some kind of combination of salty sunburns, sand in the car, and that slight sting from chlorine in my eyes. If I'm lucky, I'll get all three between outings and reunions with the friends and family that seem so far away at the moment. I wish they could bring me a boat day HERE. If Portland had my loved ones, complete with something like a day at Coconuts or Peanut Island, I would have a hard time leaving. As it is, they don't mix so many banana pina coladas here so I will continue to fly south.

We'll be there soon enough. And really, most of all, I'm looking forward to the weddings. I'm so grateful that there are people out there who appreciate what I do enough to invite me along on (potentially) the most important day of their lives. It's truly an honor to be trusted to create art from another person's reality. It sounds a bit cheesy, sure, but I don't know how else to describe how awe struck I am by my life sometimes. Rather then working for a living, I'm living my dream and making it work. Some days, I feel like the luckiest person alive. Thank You Universe.

See You Soon Florida. <3
