So long, Farewell


We can not WAIT to move to Utah. We have been working our tails off in preparation for the move and have just 1 day left! Although we couldn't be more thrilled about our move, reality is setting in and it is becoming clear that we're going to miss this place dearly! Portland is where our life together began and where all our memories up to this point reside. We've been blessed to make dear friends that have been like family to us...we have become accustomed to the mild beautiful weather...we've seen the breath taking sites....and just recently we've begun to feel that Portland was "our home"...(minus our real family). I want to dedicate this post to Portland a place we've come to love...I'm sure it will naturally shift places with Utah and become our "new" home away from home.

10 things i'll miss
(in no particular order)

1. the beautiful weather

2. visits to the coast

3. the hundreds of hikes, trails, and bike paths (just outside our front door)

4. magical strawberries and berry picking

5. Nike clothes being sold everywhere for CHEAP
(Shopko,Fredy's,& Ross 2 name a few)

6. low altitude runs

7. McMenamins dinner and a movie

8. friends who make you feel at home

9. wearing hoodies in the summer

10. NO TAX ON ANY PURCHASE i.e.(Diet Coke =$1.25 you pay $1.25)

I tried to create a slide show and it erased on me, so I am posting a bunch of pics our time here in Portland. (most are repeats from previous posts)




























bye bye Portland. Thanks for letting us stay! We'll miss you. Be back soon!
