Life Update: Arrived in Oregon

It's been a busy couple of months! Those of you who've been around a little while know that Jordan and I have been in the process of relocating for the last two months. We left Amman, Jordan (our home of two years) at the beginning of June and have been making our way across the States: Minnesota to Colorado and now finally to Oregon where we're planning to stay at least a year, if not forever...

Life on the road has been busy, and I'm looking forward now to a slower pace as we try to settle in. Trying to adjust to life here in Corvallis may not be super smooth, but we are spending a couple weeks out on the coast first, where we hope to catch up on some Pixel Scrapper things before trying to clean out the house and then move in our own stuff that's been packed away for the last 5 years. It's an overwhelming prospect and I'm glad we have these couple of weeks to catch up on the last months before jumping into something new.

I finally got around to updating my photo a day project. It's really fun to have this at-a-glance calendar of where and what we've been up to during these very busy months. I'm looking forward to sharing a few more details about our trip here on the blog over the next couple of weeks.

I admire how simple you make this all sound. Just moving across the country is a stressful production for me. I hope you're very happy with new home!

Wow you sure have been busy, good luck on the settling in. we move here two years ago and I have finally gotten everything where I want it [I think] Unpacking boxes you have had stored for that long should be almost like Christmas Enjoy

I knew you were in the process of moving but boy have I missed a lot. I will definitely be going back and checking out the journey over to the states as I am able to. Expect comments that way behind. Glad to see that you have both arrived save and sound in your new home locale. Love the day at a glance calendar to commemorate the journey--very cool!

Nice photo packed calendars. I had family who lived in Corvallis. It's a beautiful and friendly town. I remember visiting the coast while I was there.
It's breath-taking.
