I really love what I have seen with Maine, South Carolina and Rhode Island. They are all so cute and I love the beaches they offer. The Newport in Rhode Island was definitely stealing my heart yesterday but then I thought to myself... this is a big step, even greater than moving to Oregon. The East Coast is so far away from my family, so that makes things really scary. Mary also said that if she were to move to the East Coast, she would move back to New York to be closer to her family. We just weren't agreeing yesterday. So then I got really sad thinking I would go to the East Coast... but alone. I would still love to move to Oregon, but the coast towns are just too small :( However, as I was just doing research for the millionth time yesterday, I came across Lake Oswego in Oregon. It reminded me of why I liked Oregon in the first place: green everywhere, lakes, houses on the lakes, small but definitely not too small, etc. I also a long time ago posted this dream house of mine that was located somewhere in Oregon but I wasn't sure where... well I figured out that house, that same exact house, is located in Lake Oswego. It was kind of a sign. I really wanted to live somewhere on the coast, but the coast is a few hours away and it's cool just to have a coast in the state you live in. Utah doesn't have that... just beautiful mountains which I am grateful for even though I'm extremely sick of this state. The other really cool thing about Lake Oswego is that 9 miles away is Portland. Now I love Portland, it would be the one city I would consider moving to even though I'm not a city girl in the slightest. Mary and I realized that we can honestly have the best of both worlds. We can live away from the crazy city life and on the lake, but having the city that close opens up a lot of job opportunities, chances to meet people, etc. It just became really exciting and I felt like something clicked and I was back on track yesterday. I got excited also because Portland has a lot of colleges there and I can go to graduate school there and get my Master's Degree in a few years. How awesome is that?? Pretty awesome I might add. Here are some pictures of Portland and Lake Oswego:Someday I would truly love to move to the East Coast, but maybe after I meet my Mr. Right we can go together. Moving in it self is a true eye opener and changes your life, I don't think I need to be that drastic about it right now.
I just love the thought of moving and starting over. No one knows you and you can be your own person, someone that might have disappeared over time.
Where I Want to Live is somewhere that will make me happy, somewhere beautiful and serene. A place that I can feel tranquility (something I'm in desperate need of) and still have that fun life that gives me a successful job and opportunities to meet people. Yes, that's what I want. And I will have it - sooner or later. Stay tuned. xo.
