City of Roses
Yay! This is wonderful news, Kacy! (does happy dance)
There truly is no place like Oregon. I believe every state is resplendent and appealing in its own way, but Oregon by far inspires me more than any other state. Really, I've always likened Oregon to the littler sibling who doesn't quite fit in sandwiched in-between two much taller siblings (Washington and California). Despite the fact that Portland, for instance, is even more cutting-edge than both San Francisco and Seattle in terms of eco-architecture, alternative transportation, strong land use laws and creative expression, among other things..........San Francisco and Seattle incessantly steal the show in terms of the headlines. Thus it comes to no surprise, to me anyway, why Portland was just voted the "Most Underrated City" (as well as "Cleanest City") in America by TripAdvisor!
I certainly hope we finally get to meet soon! (does happy dance)
