figuring it all out

I could get used to this view!

But I doubt it'll ever get old. Any guesses on what I decided? lol Okay, for those who maybe haven't been there, this was shot on the border of my two favorite states - on the 205 bridge connecting Vancouver,WA, and Portland, OR. As I said, I've been waffling for awhile between the areas surrounding Portland and Seattle, but when I step back and really think about where I might fit in best? The choice is really a simple one. Thanks, Virginia for further confirming my initial impression of both areas. It's nice to hear that from someone who's actually lived in both areas. Seattle may (definitely) win on the amount of cultural activities/stuff to do front, but Portland has the friendliness factor and some pretty cool cultural aspects as well. Of course, the particularly vegan-friendliness of the area doesn't hurt either! lol Now, it's just a matter of figuring out the best time to move and then find a place to live. I'm so excited to soon have my own place again!

a lack of yarniness, but lots of indecisiveness

I just realized that since I finished my crochet bag, I haven't even touched any yarn. None. Haven't even had an urge to play with yarn. I have been spending more time of late on photo-based ventures however so maybe that's the cause. I've also been cooking a bit more - vegan lasagna anyone? Yum! I'm sure my knitting- and crochet-mojo will return once the temps start to dip once again.

I've also started to pack... though I still haven't completely decided exactly where I'm moving. I can't decide. Seattle area? Portland/Vancouver area? Both areas have so many pros on the list and really, very few cons... they balance each other out. The weather's even pretty similar (and I don't really mind the rain). I just can't decide! Every time I think I've made a decision, something pops up and makes me lean the other way. I think the hardest part is that I know I could be very happy with either choice. So what to do? Pick one out of a hat? heh Seriously, any advice would be greatly appreciated!
