7 states. That's how many I lived in before I even stepped foot into the state of Oregon! I 10 years. That's how long I have been privileged to call Oregon my home. My true home. No other state has even come close to feeling like "home". Maybe it's the fresh air, the drier climate, the crazy crazy weather patterns that defy normal science, the fact that I have raised my kids here in an amazing community of giving, sharing, teaching. Maybe it's all of that and so much more.
