Meeting Bria and Andrew
One of Jade’s 26 things to accomplish before she turns 27 is to ‘Meet more internet friends in real life.’
Bria and her fiance Andrew came to visit Portland a week or so ago. On Saturday we met up with them for a bit of breakfast at Woodsman Tavern. There is nothing more strange and exciting than having an actual conversation with people you’ve known but have never actually spoken to. We discovered we have even more in common than we thought. Shortly after breakfast we went to the lovely airbnb they were lodging at for a photo shoot. Bria is an accomplished boudoir photographer and had set up a little shoot with Jade (which we’ll be sharing a few photos from soon). While they were getting their shoot/modeling on, I got a chance to get to know Andrew and we had some intense conversation on just about everything under the sun. We then popped in to ‘Por Que No‘ for some tacos… and, ok a few margaritas.
On Sunday we met up again along with Kim at Salt & Straw (our favorite). After slurping up every last drop of our ice cream, we all jumped in the car and went to the east side industrial district for a photo walk. Despite the cold winds and light sprinkles, we had a wonderful time. Though our goodbyes afterwards were a tad bittersweet, Bria and Andrew are considering moving up to our neck of the woods, so there are definitely many more adventures to be had!
If anyone in the Portland area is interested in meeting up for coffee, a chat or a photo walk around town, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. We’re always down for a meet up.
