Here's an update for my family that reads my blog: I'm not dead! It's been a crazy time, but I'm hoping to get the blog up and going again, with all your favorite stories, recipes, and animations.
Happy 2015! I still feel like the year 2000 was so recent, it's hard to believe that was a full 15 years ago now.
So much has changed, even in the past one year. Even in the past four weeks!
After finally finishing up school and having my diploma in hand, I was able to get a seasonal job while Boyfriend finished up his last term of school. I worked out in Lebanon, OR at Persephone Farm. I met a lot of fabulous people and learned so much during those weeks there. One thing I learned right away is that farming is a work out! I have always respected what farmers do, but now I have first hand experience of just how hard they work every day! I also froze and canned fresh organic produce like none other, which we're really appreciating now. If you get the chance to go to the Salem, Hollywood, PSU, or Lloyd Farmers' Market go visit their stand and pick up some top notch, yummy produce!
Boyfriend graduated at the end of fall term and we promptly found a place on the outskirts of Portland that we absolutely adore. It's so perfect for us and even our grouchy old cat seems to be happy. That was about four weeks ago, and we're still working on finding places for all of our things. We've made about forty thousand trips to donate to Goodwill.
Boyfriend secured his dream job, and I did too soon after. I am lucky that I will get to use my degree in my new job and am so excited to get started.
Although we're only a few weeks in to 2015, I know it will be a year to remember, and I can't wait to see what it has in store for us.
I'm going to do my best to post at least once per month. *Fingers crossed*
I hope you have a successful and joyful new year!
