It’s official, I live in Portland….
I know that I have been here about a week but it just hasn’t really sunk in until now that I actually live here. Before it almost seemed like an extended vacation….(yeah, I know, a vacation with a puppy??!?!? Who would ever wanna do that?)…so maybe vacation isn’t the right word…I guess it just didn’t feel like real life…until now.
It’s weird but tonight while sitting in my living room watching Scandal, it finally hit me that this is home. I’m home. With my Abbie dog and very, very soon…my guy (he FINALLY arrives tomorrow – yipppeeeee).
Now that the boxes are unpacked and things are put away, I’ve started to fall into some routines. I have my coffee spot across the street. I can now walk to my grocery store without the GPS and I’ve started to make some sweat dates.
I ventured out to my first yoga class as a Portland resident at Yoga Shala Portland last night with the amazing (and amazingly sweet) Traci Vogel and learned the art of savoring the exhale (very necessary after a week of unpacking boxes and chasing a puppy around…).
And today, I went on my firstPortland Runch around the beautiful waterfront with my good friend Tasha. It was an absolutely gorgeous and perfect day for a run — the cherry blossoms are in full bloom and the waterfront was glistening.
I live here now. Whoa. After 15+ years in the Bay Area, here I am.
Hellllooooo Portland! 😉
Happy Friday y’all….AND don’t forget to…
Stay sweaty friends.

Portland is beautiful. And a great place for vegetarians/vegans! Good luck on your new adventure.
