Welcome to the first post in a the adventure of a lifetime which included moving 600 miles away from the Silicon Valley Area in California to a much more remote area in Oregon. So one day, we packed up 4 cats, 2 dogs, a home we lived in for 22 years, and the 4 of us and headed north. Well actually, it took more than one day, it takes the first step forward to make a dream a reality….so here is our story.
Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, Tony and I embarked on an adventure that began 6 years ago with the purchase of 34 acres in the heart of Oregon. The home of this beautiful acreage consists of a 900 sqft, bungalow type home, built in 1949, updated in the 1970’s…and there it has sat. It is a well built home for what it is, but with concerns about possible moisture problems, a dirt filled crawl space from the critters living underneath, an old, unstable fireplace, and much more, this little house needs to come down. So, we’ve lived in it for our visits up…and finally we are at the place in our lives that actually moving is a GREAT option…not without some difficulties, but GREAT nontheless.
The “kids”, William and Roni, are out of high school and doing their own things…although…they both decided to make the move with us and continue / start their lives as adults in Oregon. What can I say….that makes Mama happy.
