A few weekends ago I finally convinced some friends to go to the Cider Summit after two years of failed attempts!
I have mentioned before how I’m for some reason just not a beer drinker. It’s horrible to be a non-beer loving Portlander, I know. So the whole “beer fest” season is not always my favorite because they never really have a lot of things I want to drink. Cider fest on the other hand? Definitely count me in. I suckered Brice and our friends Hannah and Brando into joining me this year – though I do think they had a good time, especially since it was a gorgeous day for hanging out in the park, sipping on drinks
Happy early 4th of July! What do you have on the calendar for Independence Day? (Side comment – whenever I use that term, I think of the Will Smith movie about the aliens attacking earth and how I definitely stood in line to see it in theater on July 4th like a total nerd.)

Anyways! I am just super excited for a long weekend of relaxing and fun times with friends. The actual 4th will be spent at some BBQs and a friend’s house to watch fireworks. Then I’m heading to the St Paul Rodeo with some girlfriends on Saturday. And there is plan for a hike and some cronuts (!!) on Sunday. Should be a fun weekend!
Looking for an event this summer that will both support a good cause and be a really fun time?! Well, I’ve got just the right thing for you – the Sauvie Island Center Barn Dance held on July 26th!
