10 years ago I met my friend Jen on a mission trip to Peru. We've had a lot more adventures since then like being roommates, traveling to England, and around the south. She lives in Nashville now and came up for a short visit in September.
We packed a lot into 4 days and I think she got a good mini tour of NH and ME. On Saturday Nathan kept the kids and we headed to Portland for most of the day.
We started with flights from Rising Tide Brewery and also discovered this neat distilling company next door. Rising tide was having an anniversary celebration so there were also 3 or 4 yummy food trucks on site.
The Standard Baking Co. had been recommended by friend so we had to go check it out.
I'd be fine back there rolling dough.
Sticky bun, brioche roll and coffee.
We spent a few more hours roaming around before snagging some seafood and heading home. It was such a fun day. I think that I've only bummed around with a girlfriend without kids once since having kids. Now I've done it twice. Next time I'm headed south to see Jen in Nashville!
