Spring has sprung


Spring has sprung and I couldn’t be happier! Portland is known for it’s dreary weather, so when the sun comes out peoples moods immediately change. It is sunny and warm today, I’m talking 68 degrees! Tomorrow is suppose to be 72, I am just ecstatic! I thought I would share a few spring time flowers today in celebration of the spring and Easter this Sunday. I took these photos last year at a local farmers market and in the surrounding neighborhood.

Colorful and fun pillows

I just discovered the most adorable pillow line! I couldn't even get past the home page without falling in love with all the cute and vibrant prints! A good pillow, can be hard to find! The pillows and fabric by the yard are available through Caitlin Wilson Textiles. They are offering 15% off until March 26th by entering the code SPRING15. By the way, I was not paid to endorse this products, I just really love them!

The end of google reader


I was so saddened to hear that google reader will be going away on July 1st. Once I was introduced to the reader concept I was in love. A place to have all my blogs I love to read in one place is amazing and a total life changer. I haven’t had a chance to research other reader websites, but never had to as a high school classmate recommended feedly on a facebook post. Feedly quickly integrates your google reader into their interface in one click. I was amazed at how quick and easy it was. I was expecting to have to import or individually add all the websites to feedly. It is going to take a bit to get use to the interface, but I immediately enjoyed the photo appearing next to an excerpt of the post. 500,000 new users in the last two days can’t be wrong. Feedly automatically syncs your actions on both platforms to make sure you aren’t missing anything during the transition. They also have a great app people have been downloading like crazy!


Do any of you use feedly? If not, what do you use?
