Great Changes!

So, here's some life changes... I kicked my boyfriend out of my apartment, and turned his old room into my OFFICIAL GRANDMA JUNE SHOP! Very exciting! I am so happy to finally have some real organization.

Here's a sneak peek, taken with my iPhone:

Thanks to Susan from Northstar Vintage for two of the three clothing racks in my new room! You're the best.

Valentine's Day in Portland, Maine

I live in a really special little city. Not too many people know about Portland, Maine. Or, well, they might know of it, but don't know anything about it. When people hear Portland, they usually think of Oregon, but my little city had the name Portland FIRST, and the community here is like none other. We have amazing restaurants, the most beautiful views, the loveliest people, and the greatest local music.

Valentine's Day in Portland Maine is magical. Every year, for years now, the "Valentine's Day Phantom" covers the entirety of the downtown area in hearts. He/she/they plasters the city with red paper hearts in the middle of the night, and when us Portlanders wake up in the morning, there they are. Everywhere. The city is filled with romance. The perfect Valentine's Day gift. It is one of the many things I love about this city. This year, the city is my Valentine. (Who needs men?! Hahaha!)
