View from Home

This was the sunset from our driveway last night.  Gorgeous, right?  Vicki and I are both feeling so fortunate to be able to live in such a beautiful setting.  We completed our move from city living in Portland to country living about 35 minutes away. It is a world of difference....quiet, peaceful, life-affirming.  We both loved city living - until we didn't anymore.  Two years was enough of the traffic, the noise, the people.  I will still go into the city every week day to work, and we are an easy drive away to go to Powell's Books, restaurants, funky shopping, Spidi
acccessories, whatever Portlandy thing we might crave. 

The kids love the house and the property! Last night they unpacked their boxes and arranged their rooms, which look great! Granted, they need furniture, but at least they each have their own room, with their own stuff surrounding them, and for now, that seems to make them happy.  Yes, life is good.

That view is absolutely beautiful!!! When I moved out of KC and to a small town I realized that I don't belong in a big city. If there are more then a couple street lights then it's too big for me. It took me a couple weeks to get used to how quiet it was also. In the city there is always noise.

Enjoy your new home!
