changes

For a while there, life seemed like it was at somewhat of a stand-still. We knew Darrin would graduate in December, but we didn't know what life would have in store for us after that.  After looking for full-time jobs with not much luck, we didn't quite know what would happen.

Since then...we've had some changes.
A small one-haircuts! :) 
Darrin let me convince him to go super short and I got a haircut (1st time since Logan was 6 weeks old)


And now for the bigger one...We'll be going to Portland, Oregon for an internship in the summer. 


It is just a short 8-week internship, but we are really excited.  Things are starting to fall into place for us.  Darrin found a full-time temporary job, his internship, and got a great score on the GMAT--which will hopefully get him into a Master's program of his choice.  

Now just to wait on hearing back from schools...

Congratulations! Dave and I have tossed around the idea of living in Oregon for many reasons (maybe someday). You'll have to let me know how it goes!

Everyone I've heard that has lived in Oregon has loved it. That'll be a great adventure! And cute hair!

You are going to love Portland. We are trying to make it out there, so if we overlap, we should get together.

Congrats on the internship! Stephen is from the Portland area, so we go there lots! It is a beautiful place and you will love it!

I think / hope that you'll love Portland. I loved growing up there. I'm curious who your internship is with and where you'll be living. I grew up on the west side of the city and know that there are a lot of members out there -- a lot of young families, but I think the Church is well established everywhere in the metro area. Summer is the best time to be there (it doesn't rain as much and is still lush and green); you definitely need to get away from the city when you get a chance -- to the coast and the mountains and the high desert. So much to do in Oregon (of course, I am biased).
