Just Kidding

So just kidding, Adam and I are not moving to Boise, ID. 
We're moving to Portland, OR! 
While we were busy packing last Monday for our move and trip back east, Adam got a call from the company in Portland that originally couldn't hire him, telling him that plans had changed and they wanted to offer him the job. We were FLOORED. We had already made plans in Boise, we even had an apartment, and told them we would call them back the next day. After a stressful night, we called Portland the next morning telling them we'd accept the position. It was a bitter-sweet decision for sure--the position and offer were better, but we were really looking forward to living next to Adam's brother and his wife and little ones. But we had a feeling we needed to be in Portland, so holy cow that's what we're doing. We get back on Wednesday and have to move out of our little apartment Thursday morning--so I'm kind of freaking out.

It's no New York, but Portland's a super cool place.

I grew up in Portland! Love it! Way better than Boise :) It is bigger, and more beautiful and has more shopping. Plus it's only about an hour from the beach and mountain. Have fun moving!

Um, besides being an awesome city, Oregon itself is SALES TAX FREE- every shopper's dream :) I'm visiting there right now (Carl's from that area)!

congratulations! sometimes life throws you curve balls. You guys sound like you handled it pretty well! Sounds like how I was feeling not too long ago before Jer got his new job here. Hope the move goes smoothly and you get settled in before baby comes! Can't wait to see your pics of portland! I love that side of the country!
