Two weeks ago I turned 25 and so I figured I would use this opportunity to share a little bit more about the girl behind the blog.
A few weeks ago I had the amazing pleasure of having some of my best friends visit me here in Oregon. Besides family, they were my first visitors since moving to Oregon, so I was really excited to have them visit. I was also really excited because it was their first trip to Oregon and so I wanted to show them a good time. So for four days, we did some of the most Oregonian things one should do on their first visit to the Beaver State.
Um... can we just talk about how we're almost halfway through November?! I feel like I was just looking at the calendar and wondering how it was already Halloween! As you've probably noticed, I haven't posted anything in a VERY long time.You can blame the gloriousness that it 2L year. School basically took over my life for the month of October, which was a real bummer for me since October in Oregon is BEAUTIFUL! All I wanted to do was run around and see the colorful leaves, go pumpkin picking all day and do other fall stuff. Unfortunately, that did not get to happen. If I wasn't at school, I was at home reading, and on the weekends I was attending conferences and classes in Portland and even had to complete a midterm over Halloween weekend! Yuck! Needless to say, the blog and my travel adventures kind of took a backseat. But once November rolled around school slightly got better, although it looks like I'll still be too busy to do any traveling/adventuring until Christmas break. I mean I'm even too busy to celebrate my own birthday! (which is actually today- 25 years old yikes!)
