I'm back!

I'm back!

So sorry for the extended hiatus - it's been a busy couple of months. I visited Oregon with my boyfriend and his family, jumped off a cliff into Crater Lake (see previous post!), went on a ridiculously fun friend trip to Vegas, won money at blackjack, drank for free while playing blackjack like a boss, visited the East Coast for my usual summer trip home, went to the lake with family, saw friends and old coworkers, ate the most delicious of food, moved out of my wonderful Texas apartment, started my assignment in Oregon, and oh yeah - got engaged!

I was proposed to in beautiful Shenandoah National Park in Virginia, which happens to be one of my favorite places on earth. I got a beautiful ring from a wonderfully excellent dude and I'm super excited to be with him until we're old and crotchety on the front porch together. Related to all this, I feel I am a fairly laid back person. I try not to give too many fucks about things that don't matter, and I think I'm mostly successful at this. That being said...I could feel myself turning into a crazy person when it comes to planning and money and all the things. Hence the hiatus from blogging.

But now I've got most of the major details knocked out, a budget, friends to make me not crazy, and I'm halfway across the country in beautiful Oregon. Blogging shall resume as I've already got plenty of interesting stories from this new assignment and a ton of gorgeous nature pictures to make you all jealous over. Thanks for sticking with me over this break in writing!

Happiness shall follow you across the country until you settle into the most beautiful state in the Union. Congratulations; may your wedding and the following years of marriage bring you both all you have waited to find in each other.
