We went to Red Hills Market, which is everything you love about Oregon stereotypes: local food and wine, wood and natural light everywhere, homegrown-herbs flavoring everything.
And it's super cute. Basically the entire restaurant belongs on Pinterest:
(Wine and decorative birds! How Portland.)
Our appetizer. I was so happy that our roasted hazelnuts came with a little pine tree in them. (Also known as rosemary, but hey.)
I love this girl. We sat and talked for a long time... it was so good for my heart.
Yay for dates, and cute quirky pretty decorative accents, and friendship.
