We're off to Portland and Seattle for our summer vacation/baby moon! We'll be staying with family friends the first two nights, and then we haven't booked any hotels or travel for the rest of the trip! Travel with iphones changes everything. I looked up airbnb options in Portland and got really excited for tiny houses, vintage trailers and canvas tents.
For this vacation I plan on trying as many gluten free bakeries as I can, visiting breweries and watching Chris drink beer, eating my fill of raw oysters and seafood and finding some really awesome healthy eateries and cute shops. Mainly food and shopping. We're planning on staying in the cities for the majority of the trip but we'll definitely be making a couple trips out into the wilderness to see mountains, greenery and ferns.
I've put together a collection of some of my favorite new recipes to help you celebrate the 4th. They're all gluten free, all grain free, a couple have vegan options and a couple use real sugar in the toppings. They're delicious. Have a great holiday weekend!
