Thoughts on Portland

print found via here

All in all, Portland has been good to us these past two years. I made new friends, tried strange foods, skied the Cascades, hiked parts of the Pacific Crest Trail, and settled into married life. There were major challenges, too. I was anonymous, momentarily unemployed, and overwhelmed in a big city. Life lessons learned. I look back on this experience fondly and will always be grateful for the time we spent here.

We're leaving tomorrow. First stop: Boise, Idaho! Then we'll head to our beloved Jackson, Wyoming and from there Boulder, Colorado to visit my brother. We have podcasts, Sirius radio, and a cooler full of snacks. Love me a good road trip!


  1. Lights will guide you home. Welcoming you both back to Virginny!

  2. What a enlightening season of your life in Portland...can't wait to see what's in store for you back east! Travel safely!!
