Long boarding in a Dress

A favorite summer past time of mine has always been long boarding... lo and behold, part 3 starts with me in my dress and tights cascading down Mt Tabor on a long board... (Part 1 and Part 2).  Before dating, Ryan and I would casually ride around town on our long boards (he had to think that was impressive lol) and spend hours just hanging out as great friends. On Saturday, my good friends (and brothers) awaited my arrival at the top of Mt Tabor with an extra long board in hand. 

Luckily, I had brought flats to work that day (I walk 45 mins each way to work) and didn't have to long board in my heels. 
After many screams, laughs, and 'fear my life' jumps off the board because it was going way too fast for me to handle (downhill and winding road) I finally made it to the bottom, where some of my closest friends and favorite people were waiting, looking fabulous might I add!!!
 (The ladies balancing our way down the rest of the hill, Bryan showing his skills)
From here, (after I opened one of the most meaningful promises) we all caravanned to the next location...

He brought me back to where it all began, Multnomah University. In the mail room. 
You see, I first met Ryan when I walked into the student building at Multnomah University (where he was attending) we immediately made eye contact (we're talking 100 ft away from each other) and neither would look away. I got so flustered that I booked it into the mail room where my dear friend Rachel helped me calm down from giddy excitement (what was that?!) and brought me back out of the mail room where we "opened her mail"/ waited to see if Ryan would come talk to me...

In the room was our good friend Hannah (who Ryan has written and played many songs with) and she began to serenade me as I opened yet another letter written by him (retrieved from that exact mailbox). His sisters and E from earlier all chimed in and surprised me by being at this location as well!
After recounting more memories, being given another promise, and lots of hugs and giggles from girl friends, they lead me out back to the parking lot.... and much to my surprise I find....

Come back tomorrow for a post full of many exciting pics!!! 


  1. cheap longboards somebody here could tell where I could buy? Skateboarding at heart is a sub-culture lifestyle meant for careless creatives with a masochistic touch and a reckless resentment for authority.

  2. Hi Jade!

    I somehow stumbled upon your blog and I have to say I really like your photos! In fact, I actually just pinned one of the longboarding photos onto my board :)

    It certainly looks like plenty of fun longboarding downhill, especially when it's with close friends and family!

    Keep longboarding!
