    If you follow along with me on Instagram (@cassandranoelle) you might have seen that I recently spent a lot of time in Portland Oregon.

    California Road Trip

    I’ve said it before, but I will say it again. California road trips are the epitome of joy. There’s just something so perfect about the sunshine days and how the desert turns to mountains turns to beaches. I love driving along the coast and watching surfers in the vast Pacific. Driving through other states just […]
