Life happens


I had grand intentions of writing a blog every day this month, and while I’ve had lots of ideas for blog posts, this week has been one of those weeks. My work has been stressful, my boyfriend’s new job has been frustrating, one of my boyfriend’s children had a major surgery, my house is a mess, and the weather got really frigid cold. Sometimes life just happens.

Daily Prompt: Local


Portland Rose

This picture was taken by me this last weekend as I was out exploring my local neighborhood. I find it fitting since my city has the nickname of “the Rose City”. Clicking on the picture will bring you to a non-distorted view of it, I was having difficulty trying to figure out how to make it appear non-distorted within the post. Enjoy!
