A to Z Challenge 2014: Portlandia from A to Z

Last year I participated in the April A to Z Blogging Challenge for the first time. I chose to write about all the
places I'd traveled outside of the United States ("Oh, the places you'll go!"). Fortunately, I had kept travel journals for many of those far-flung places, so it was a delectable trip down memory lane for me!

This year I'm staying closer to home and writing about my beloved hometown:
Portland, Oregon.

I am an unusual Oregonian because I was born here (in Oregon City) and although I went to college out of state and lived in Japan for three years, I've returned here to live. I love it here, so I look forward to sharing the best of my city with you!

Come back every day in April to read about my wonderful hometown!


  1. I heard a lot about Portland all good. I went though it a long time ago. I have a cousin who lives in Corvallis and my oldest and his wife just move to Medford.
    Oh I love to stop by that doughnut shop I hear so much about.

    My A is up or soon to be.

    Coffee is on

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Dora! Yes, you should visit. Guess what will be on my V post? (Voodoo Doughnuts!)

  2. I have added your blog to my WordPress reader.

  3. AWESOME topic! I can't wait to read your posts in April - I moved to Portland a few years back but now live just across the river in Vancouver. Looking forward to reading more! Cheers, marci at :D

    1. Thanks Marci--Vancouver is close!
