After months of not knowing how much longer we'd be calling Portland home, I'm absolutely ecstatic to say that we're staying. And we plan to be here for a while. Lewis started a new job on Monday, so I've registered Sophie for kindergarten, and I'm getting my Oregon driver's license. No more risk of jinxing anything.
It's been an absolutely beautiful spring here, starting with Easter. We've made trips to the coast, watched the cherry blossoms bloom out front, opened up the patio for dinner, watched Sophie's neighborhood "coronation ceremony" (Allie and Ripley crowned her a princess, complete with invites, a homemade dress and Tang), played A LOT of golf and helped Sophie rake in the dough at her first lemonade stand.
We love you, Portland life.
