my time in oregon is coming to an end

On Monday, I get on a train and a mere 30 hours later I arrive in Los Angeles to celebrate David Ray’s birthday. I’m actually really looking forward to the long trip to reflect on my time in Oregon and to get my brain ready for my upcoming adventure.

Cheeseball alert!!!

There’s a few things that I’ve realized since I’ve been here. And in no particular order, here they are:

My friends have the most amazing beautiful, charming, smart, delightful children I ever thought possible. Now I know I’m totally biased, but I’m not the only one that thinks this. It’s pretty much just pop culture knowledge.

My family is fantastic. And I’m not just talking about one or two here or there. I’m talking about the whole damn lot of them, aunt, uncles, cousins, their spouses, girlfriends, boyfriends, children, pets…How I lucked out like this is anyone’s guess. I was fortunate enough to be here for my Mom’s 60th birthday, my sister’s 26th, and my brother’s 25th.

As for my friends here? So very special to me. I’ve started friendships that I already value. I’ve grown budding friendships. And I’ve basked, and bathed, and rolled in the ones I’ve have for the majority of my life.

Thank you, Oregon, for nurturing all of these beautiful souls.

I heart Oregon pc
