Hello Friends and Family! I decided to create a blog so you all could keep up with Ross and me on our post-graduation journey.
We will be graduating from graduate school on May 8, 2010 (28 days and counting). After a long and intense year, Ross and I will both have our Master of Business Administration degrees and be ready for the real world; but not the real world that Larry describes, full of cubicles and mind-numbing computer programs!
After much deliberation, we have decided to move to Portland, OR, Popular Science's Greenest City in the U.S. (for the little hippie in all of us!) and Bicycling Magazine's #2 Bike-Friendly City in the U.S. (guess who loves that?!?). Portland also offers immaculate rose gardens (hence it's nickname the "City of Roses"), tons of microbrews (also known as the "Motherland of Microbreweries"), and countless parks and green spaces. Watch this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3PC5PDlKKIo Who wouldn't love it?
Our plan is graduate on May 8th, then spend the rest of the month loving up on our friends and family, saying our good-byes (you will see me soon Mom, I promise!), and going to weddings (3 in one month!). We plan to leave for Portland on May 24, and spend the following few days driving 2,682 miles across the country, pulling all of our belongings and Eilsey with us. What's in store? We will see when we get there!
So buckle up, and pop in your favorite cd, 'cause it is going to be a long drive.
