I am recovering from a post-Harry Potter depression (yes, I am done with Book 6 – loved it but cried a lot) so I have not been posting very expediently. I spent last week up in the Northwest with RaChelle (on the weekend) and my parents and the McMullan family during the week. I had a marvelous time – Telfer is not exactly vacation bound for some time. He missed me while I was gone, but he was quite busy.
RaChelle and I had such a good time in Vancouver/Portland! I have decided that I could definitely live in Portland for these following reasons: 1. RaChelle lives there (obviously). 2. Portland is such a nice little city! Albeit, I froze to death (forgot to pack anything warmer than a t-shirt), but I could get used to the weather. 3. Powell’s. I.love.Powell’s. Who wouldn’t want to live in the same city as one of the best independent bookstores in the world? Really, I don’t need to go on and on but Telfer and I both could see ourselves living there at some point. RaChelle and I ate lots of good food (crepes and bbq chicken salads, etc.) and walked (and shopped) in downtown Portland.
We got to talk a lot and drink coffee – I am truly blessed to have her as a friend. Paul, RaChelle’s husband, was very gracious for letting me stay with them!
