Hazelwood Sweater

I live in a part of Portland that’s a bit more off the beaten path than I ever thought I’d live. It’s East of 82nd. But, I’ve grown to really love the little neighborhood we’re calling home these days. Three playgrounds within walking distance (a boon for my littles), a big yard, and a great Thai place pretty close by. Hazelwood is the perfect neighborhood for my family, and this is the perfect sweater to throw on when going for long walks with the people who make YOUR neighborhood home.
