The weekend before last, Dan and I went to our first SPE conference together since Madison fall 2014 (my first since New Orleans spring 2015). We went to seven talks over the two days and had a good time. The beauty of the OSU campus in the fall was mind-blowing. We also had a really cute Airbnb. Back in Portland, we went to the Bonneville Fish Hatchery and McMenamins Edgefield. It was me and Nat’s first time in the gorge since the fire. It looks very different 😔
Other things Dan and I did: made a lot of food (Dan was on a modified Whole30 diet), went for a super rainy walk at Tryon Creek, went to Paxon Gate, went to PAM (we saw the LAIKA and Wyeth exhibitions 😍). I definitely don’t like it when he leaves and we don’t have another visit planned for the future, but the fall is going to go by fast with my trip to Dallas for work in two weeks, both my parents and Nat’s parents visiting for Thanksgiving, and my sister visiting for New Year’s Eve. Also can I just say I am seeing MORRISSEY!! On Halloween!! Tomorrow!!
