There are so many things that I've loved since living in Oregon. My list of things that I will miss certainly out weigh the things I will not miss. I thought I would post a few.


I have really enjoyed cooking on this brand new flat top stove. In our new place, the stove looks like it's been there since the house was built. It will take some adjusting. No promises on how my cooking will turn out in CA.


I won't miss the fridge itself, just the water disposal. It has been a real luxury.


I will miss looking at these 3 beautiful heads of hair. Grace has made some really great friends here. Luckily she is excited to move to our new home, near disneyland. But I do think once we are there and she realizes her friends won't be there, she'll have a hard time. What am I saying? I think I'll have a harder time than she will. I too have made some really good friends here. What more could a girl ask for than good friends who put up with all my flaws. But thank goodness for email and facebook.


I'm really going to miss the Oregon Zoo. I know you can't tell by the picture, but this was taken there. We bought an annual pass, along with the rest of Portland. I have really enjoyed just going when the weather was decent and taking in all that it has to offer.


This is our view from the kitchen window. Sometimes there are deer out there. Oregon is just beautiful!


Our little preschool co-op has been a wonderful experience for us. I know Grace looked forward to it every week, as did I (except for those weeks I had to teach:) I could not have asked for a better group of moms (and kids) to work with. Thanks for making our little group so fun!

not miss:
Our place has two of these. Our new place has none. No contest.

We're going to miss you guys too much! I am glad that your place in Cali doesn't have stairs. Think of all the calories you have burned on those two flights of stairs.

I can't even think about you moving, it makes me too sad. Thanks for being such good friends.
