float like a butterfly, sting like a bee
My Mom and I took a roadie to Portland yesterday. We took a tour about the Nike Campus where my cousin works.
My favorite part was the Idea Lab. An incredible library and place for creative inspiration. Whiteboard tables with bins of post-its. A 360 of inspiring books, trophies, shoe-boxes, modern furniture, little figurines.
Nike has an amazing history and still more in the making. I loved seeing the people that work there---such style! It was the ultra-cool for sure. Lots of Nike kicks. I even saw the guy that designed the Air Force 1. Epic.
This picture is of a track (duh) that is part of the Nike Campus. It was gorgeous with all the leaves. I was about to run a few laps myself.
We headed to the Nike employee store. UH OH---it was a score.
Thanks to my girl, Kimberly for recommending Mother's Bistro in downtown Portland.
We walked around downtown Portland. I LOVE this city. Like, I can't wait to go back.
Oops. A little windy.
