lake oswego & the trailblazers

We flew out late Thursday night and unbeknownst to me I got invertigo on the flight--something that has never happened before. My boyfriend distracted my insane spinning head with the Matrix Reloaded, which did help. Thanks babe! Once we landed, I couldn't' contain my excitement! Actually being in Oregon (and not just dreaming about it) brought me great joy as the freezing air welcomed me to the Pacific North West.

We woke up the next morning to beautiful rain and grey skies, my favorite! His parents made a delicious breakfast of bacon and eggs as we ate with the view of Lake Oswego before us. Afterwards, he took me on a trail at George Roger's Park, which lead to an abandoned structure that was, sadly, not safe enough to try to get inside of. Just walking around in the rain surrounded by such fresh air and a wildly green environment was everything compared to California's drought of brown hills.

Later that night, his parents took us to the Trailblazers vs. Mavericks game at the Moda Center as my birthday present. That was so sweet of them! Although Portland didn't win, it was an incredibly close game that made my first basketball game experience that much more exciting. To end the night, we hopped over to Voodoo Doughnuts that was surprisingly not busy. In my opinion, it is overrated but donuts are donuts to me and I gobbled that up like it was pizza. Ps. because pizza is my favorite.

Stay tuned to hear about my day next day spent in Portland! xx

My name is Kat and I am a lover of photography and words.

This blog is a collection of my ideas and opinions, including my photography and personal life.

He proposed during the golden hours of sunrise along the warm waters on a beach in Hawaii. Five years of love and laughter, he got down on one knee and proposed to my sister. There romance is classic: childhood friends that reconnected years later and fell in love.

There is never an opportunity where I am not learning--learning something about myself, my feelings, what I want. I crave both isolation and societal gatherings. As a hopeless romantic, I yearn to fall in love, but on the other hand my dirty mind only makes me want one thing. I want your attention but don't care if you want me or not; I'm okay with being alone. My nature of contradictions is confusing but it's my genuine character.
I'm learning to be completely honest with myself in every aspect of my life. Speaking my truths to friends and family--and even strangers--is terrifying, but there's a satisfaction in being forward with my intentions. Sometimes, being on the receiving end of the truth is painful--but it won't kill me nor make me weak. As cliché as it sounds, it will make me stronger, my skin a little thicker, my perspective more understanding. 
My emotional empathy for others is deep and unconditional. I have always been all heart, all compassion. I…
