I was tempted to name this blog post like an episode of “Friends” and call it “The One with all the Tulips”. The Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival was a dream location that I placed on my bucket list over a year ago. This was an experience I’ll keep with me long after I’m old and grey.

We had an incredible trip to Portland! I am thrilled to be able to share Voodoo Doughnut shop and much more with the You, Me, and Tennessee family. Voodoo Doughnut is a place I’ve seen on Food Network and read about on Pinterest. I’ve wanted to go for years and I am over the moon to say that we finally made it happen. I encourage each and every one of you to make your own list and start marking things off. You won’t regret it!
