This week has been difficult, as most weeks are after returning from the top of a mountain. My trips were absolutely fantastic. Portland was beautiful (Maura is my favorite part of PDX). Chicago was magic (so magical, in fact, that I nearly missed my flight home! It was definitely worth it, though).
I have many more pictures and stories to share. First I must catch up on life. My room still has an open suitcase in the middle of the floor with clean and dirty clothes strewn about here and there. I plan on doing some monster posts this weekend. Keep your eyeballs peeled.
