Girl Crush: Day 6: Liz from Portland to Peonies

Liz from Portland of Peonies is so darn creative, beautiful, sweet, and well dressed.
She takes the kind of photos I aspire to one day.
 Her blog is filled with a lot of my favorite things: great design, Henry – her french bulldog, beautiful photos, and one downright adorable girl.  She’s
Enjoy her guest post here and then run on over to From Portland to Peonies,
where you’ll surely spend the rest of your day.


Hi there! So nice to meet all of you lovely readers! I was so excited when Sarah asked me

to write a guest post for her while she’s away on her fun girl’s trip. Her blog is absolutely
one of my favorites. I mean, what’s not to love? She’s gorgeous, has amazing style, takes
beautiful photos and the love between her and her hubby is so inspiring. And to top it off,
she gets to travel the world and is nice enough to tell us all about her trips here on fairy
tales are true!
I racked my brain on what to share with you all, and I figured all of Sarah’s readers must
love travel, so I’d share some of my most favorite places I’ve had the opportunity to visit.
So here goes…

Costa Rica.
 My husband and I traveled here for 10 days early on in our relationship.
I still think it was one of our most romantic vacations we’ve been on. The gorgeous
jungles, the beautiful beaches, and monkeys!

My husband proposed to me here so it’s a very special place to us.

We took the train here for a quick weekend trip after Corey proposed. It’s so
quaint, we loved it! Perfect place to enjoy some Belgian beer, chocolate and frites!

Buenos Aires.
They call it the Paris of Buenos Aires. I’ve never been to Paris, but if this
is true, it multiplies my desire to go there! An amazing city with SO much to see.
Iguazu Falls.
You have to see this in your lifetime. Just trust me.
And last, but certainly not least, Kauai. We honeymooned here, it’s a 5 hour flight from
Portland, and it’s one of the most beautiful tropical destinations in the world!

Well, I hope you all enjoyed hearing about my travels! I’m not sure about you, but I’m
excited for Sarah to get back so we can continue to hear about hers
