Memories.....and a spring break, break.

If you have been around for awhile you will remember this sweet cottage - our 
'Forever*Cottage' in Minnesota.  We called it home for three years prior to
moving back to Portland 2 years ago. So many good memories....such long winters!
{this home was featured in Flea Market Style}

Tomorrow, what we loved most about Minnesota arrives in Oregon - our
next door neighbors!  We are SO excited we can hardly 
stand it.   Needless to say, the next 10 days {yes, you read that right,
they are here for 10 days - all SIX of them}will be very busy so 
my posting may be sporadic or not at all.  We shall see, I don't want
any pressure because I just want to be present.  

As a family who has moved many times - this last one was a doozy.
I attribute the added stress to my children's ages - my big
girl was in 6th grade and my little in 3rd grade.  The 
transitions were all harder - we had left 'home', which was 
not just the cute cottage pictured above - it was school, teachers,
parents, friends, neighbors, familiar paths to the park, the local
ice cream parlor etc.....You get the idea. 
Thankfully, my girls are thriving in Portland now.

Having the friends who became like family
visit us in our new home is an honor and we feel
so blessed to continue this important relationship!

You will see our pack of 10 all over Oregon this week -
let the fun begin!

*** As you might have guessed, the guest bedroom 
redecorating was spurred on by this visit and as so 
many guessed, {although I didn't make it so
hard with my previous post}I chose the 'brass beauty'
sconces from Pottery Barn.  I love, love loved the 
green hipsters but in the end they just did not go with my home.
If I had a little boy, I would totally design a room around those sconces!

  1. I say, try for the boy, those green lights are totally worth it. :)

  2. How fun to have special friends visiting. We have dear friends in Minnesota who have visited us once and we have gone twice to Minnesota to them. We catch right back up in our conversation when we get together.

    Have a fun time together.

  3. Love it! Have fun with your house guests and soak up all those new memories :)

  4. I've had the spring vision
    you posted on IG in my
    brain since I first saw it!
    I know your friends will
    have such an amazing time.
    Can't wait to see all the pics!
