Impromptu photo with these bad ass ladies.
I am on the ✈️ headed back home to Oliver🐷 and LA exhausted yet smiling from ear to ear after 48 hours of the greatest time. When I landed on Friday I hoped I would get to meet a few people in town, yet I feel like I'm coming back home w/ literally an army of new and incredibly special friends.
Thank you to Earl from Langbaan who took me on a turbo food tour of Portland,
Amy from Guittard Choclate who stood in the rain w/ me to get the perfect cookie shot,
Matthew Jennings, Ben Jacobsen, Michael Scelfo, Keith Kreeger
Michael Scelfo who said I had to come out to Feast Portland and Megan, who organized everything last minute so I could make this trip possible, Ben of Jacobsen Salt Co. who I finally got to meet and couldn't have been a nicer human being, Sam from Tusk PDX who drove me home so I didn't walk in the ☔️, to Benji the founder of Poler Stuff who let me geek out w/ him over the best ERP system to use, Local Haven who I've admired on Instagram forever and finally got to sit down and have dinner w/ her and Feed Me Dearly,

Seeing that ampersand on you in a crowded room full of strangers is a feeling I can barely explain but what I will say is it makes my heart explode w/ happiness every time, hence why I came running up to say hi and give you a hug😬😁... all that combined made my day times 50 so THANK YOU to the moon and back. I'll keep on fighting the good fight as long as you keep kicking ass too
