We are officially residents of Portland, Oregon. There are a few differences from life in California, but we’re really enjoying our new apartment. It’s a lot bigger than we expected it to be, since we actually did all the apartment browsing online. (which it worked out pretty well.)
I wanted to have some pretty photographs to go along with this entry to show our new place, but our POD will be delivered next week. So the place is pretty much empty and those would not make for fun photos. We did some “furniture” shopping which consisted of getting desks and computer chairs because Adam and I can not live for too long without our computers. ( We actually can, but we prefer not to) I’m hoping that in the next couple of weeks I can start posting pictures of progress of the decorating and arranging of our place.
The area we live is really quiet which we enjoy. There are a few parks around and large green fields to one side of our place. Bethany Lake is just a 10 minute walk from here and we also have a few breweries and bars very close to home.
All in all we really like it here, the weather is fantastic so far. We don’t have to deal with the 105° weather California is having. Although I know I’m going to struggle in winter, as I always tend to be cold. I should start preparing those winter coats, hats and gloves. (just to be ready) Anyway, we are looking forward to exploring our all the cool places Portland has to offer. So stay tuned for some upcoming blogs about my adventures in Portland.
