Preparing to move abroad has helped us realize how good we have it here in Portland. Beloved friends and family are close by. We feel so comfortable in our home and love our sweet neighborhood. Even our favorite Super Torta burritos are only a short walk away, and it really doesn’t get much better than that.
The love and support has been pouring in as we prepare for this adventure. Thank you friends and family, coworkers and neighbors. It’s not easy to leave this life behind and travel to Ireland where we don’t have an established community. Of course we are excited for the thrill and travel adventures, but we are also really going to miss it here.
The entire month of May was filled with visiting family in AZ and OR, a birthday trip to enjoy our beautiful coast, last days at work, celebrating one year of marriage, surprise visits and parties, even a karaoke night. SO MUCH LOVE. Now we just take some deep breaths and welcome the challenges ahead. -Shelby
