I was chatting with my friend Brooke this evening and we were talking about poetry this evening. I told her that I think part of my problem with poetry is that my brain is still in elementary, everything must rhyme mode and high school everything must have a deep meaning mode and my brain just kind of falls apart. 

So she wrote this for me:
"As weather gets colder
And I get older
It becomes more apparent
That I’m not a ferret"
By Brooke (She's got a really cool website right now, check it out).

Help donate meals to kids in need

Like Kidfresh on facebook to help them donate to kids in need through City Harvest! For each like they’ll donate 30 meals.

They are nearly at the end of their time to donate 300,000 meals to kids in need, so if you’re reading this today. Click the link and like kidfresh.

Their foods sound like they’re full of veggies! I like the sound of that.

I found this on All Day I Dream About Food's site. She has even more information than I'm posting.

Coming home

It's been a little while since I updated my blog. Updates about the past couple of weeks to come soon, but first . . .

I'm coming home for Christmas next week!!!

Or for an exact time until my plane in Sapporo takes off:

It's going to be fun to see my family. My mom told me this evening that my littlest sis had said that one of the reasons Christmas is her favorite is because she gets to see me. I can't wait to see her and give her a hug!

Another Awesome Oregon Video

I found this video on Google+ thanks to Ben Canales. I think it's one of the most beautiful videos of Oregon I've ever seen. Though I really love travel Portland's Love Letter to Portland video as well.

This video is best viewed full screen. (Dad - if you click the arrow button in the bottom right, it will become full screen).

Finding Oregon from Uncage the Soul Productions on Vimeo.

Makes me so excited to be home and see Oregon in all it's beauty while I'm there!
