As an early Birthday gift, Daniel treated me to the Portland on Ice winter festival. It was a lot of fun and such a unique present. I always complain that he just gets standard gifts like perfume or jewelry, so this year it really was a lovely surprise. So after a light snack at the Original Pancake House, we headed off to Portland Harbor Hotel and truly had a blast. It was absolutely mobbed there, which was no great shock.
There was so much else going on when we went too. There was "Strike a Chord: A Music Discovery Funhouse,” for free from the city’s Downtown District and the music Foundation. And then the instrument petting zoo that we weren’t so excited about but made me think how much fun the kids would have had. But they were home with a sitter. Daniel wanted the night to be just about me!
