state of mind

You may have already heard this news... but if not here it is: 

We're Moving!!!

Where to? Brookings, Oregon. It's a little coastal touristy town right on the south west corner of Oregon. Right on highway 101.

 My parents live in this neck of the woods. My dad also has an automotive supply business, he offered my husband a job,  a job that will allow him to work 30 hours a week instead of 60! Oh happy day! Poor guy has been stressed for so long with his job now (GM for an automotive retail store) It will be a much needed change for him. 

Did I mention I will be living by the ocean?!? This has been a dream of mine for so long. I LOVE the ocean! The weather in Brookings range from 50's to 70's all year long. It's a perfect spot if you dislike both hot summers and cold winters, which we do. Hot summers are no fun, plus people feel it is an excuse to wear things they really should not be wearing, my eyes!! I get tired of cold winters and feeling like a sumo wrestler with the layer upon layer of clothing. I do like snow, I do not like ice storms... 

Going from Arizona where you get the occasional flooding, HOT summers, hot winters, and forest fires to Indiana that has hot summers, cold winters, ice storms, flooding, tornadoes (I'm sure I'm forgetting some other catastrophes) Brookings will be very mild. I love the weather where I can wear sandals with jeans and a sweater. Perfection. Every once in a while they get what are called "micro-bursts" where the temp can be 100 for a day. Kind of crazy!

We will be starting our journey on June 18th. 5 weeks away! EEK! I'll post photos on Instagram. Follow me if you want to join us on our journey! All four of us (poor kitties) 

Here are a few pictures from the area.

This is the little community we'll be living in. It is also a vacation rental location if anyone wants to visit!

I'll try to post as often as I can but it will be hit or miss for the next 6 weeks!


  1. Wow! What an exciting move. My brother wanted to move to Oregon for the longest time. It looks beautiful and who wouldn't want to live next to the ocean!

  2. Wow! Congrats! Looks and sounds fabulous. Let the packing begin!
