Portland, Oregon - The famous neon Portland sign. It’s been in this spot since 1940. That means it’s only 2 years short of its 75th anniversary!
I love my city. I cannot drive through it without tears welling up in my eyes or exclaiming to myself (and anyone who happens to be in the car with me) how beautiful it is and how grateful I am to be here. I finally feel like I’ve found my home and I am wholly and completely in love.
"My heart didn’t break into a thousand pieces after he left. Instead, I realized all the things he didn’t do. He didn’t want to hear my stories. He didn’t ask me questions. He didn’t smile when I was talking to him. He didn’t hug me out of the blue to make me feel good. His hugs were always a preamble to something else, and after he was gone, I wondered if he ever knew me at all."
