Oregon Trail

After countless blogs about feeling trapped in the sunshine state, I'm finally making my move! I'm embarking on the classic 'American Adventure', to go out west in search of a better life. Really, it's not even a better life that I'm seeking, but rather a fresh one. Florida tastes stale.

We have a couple months without weddings, and it's the same couple months after our lease expires. If that's not a bright sign from the stars aligning, I don't know what is. And, the stars seem to point northwest.

Portland still seems a bit like a random choice, but what's wrong with random? It's the one place that seems to combine my need for a city life with great public transportation, and Matt's needs for mountains. The Incredible food, beautiful parks, microbreweries, and hippy-artsy culture works in favor for both of us. Now that we've made our decision the hard part is waiting; we're READY TO GO!
