portland friends part one

Bekka PalmerComment

Words cannot even describe how much fun I had in Portland last week. The best part was meeting new friends that I only knew through twitter and blogs. So today I want to tell you about 2 of the lovely ladies I met last week (more intros to come throughout the week).

Joke (pronounced YOKA for those of you wondering) from Tokketok Press is the sweetest. We met for the first time a few weeks ago in Palm Springs at Hitched, and I could not wait to see her again. She introduced me to the doughnuts at Grüner.. amazing! She also runs a letterpress studio with the most beautiful minimalist cards. Oh and she has a killer blog with the best easy gift wrap and craft ideas, seriously Martha Stewart should be knocking on her door.

Sally, I “met” online through mutual friend Bonnie. She is a longtime blogger and amazing mother of two cute boys. I have to congratulate Sally for launching another blog yesterday: Sally J Shim. Both of her blogs, Shim + Sons and Sally J Shim have original ideas and inspiration. She is so thoughtful and full of insight.

More to come later this week on more ladies and a few gents I met in Portlandia.
