Clarification

I was at a Stampin' Up workshop last night and it came up that I hate Dork Ounty. Well, I just want to clear things up. I don't HATE it, I don't even mind it here. Really, I don't. It's just not HOME. I'm enjoying seeing a different part of the great country that I get to live in. I am looking forward to seeing MORE of it this summer and whenever else I get the chance. I am so thankful for the new friends that I've made and the experiences my family has had.

With that being said, I'm a West Coast Girl. Always have been, always will be. You can lead a girl to the middle of the country, but you can't make her love it. I miss my ocean, I miss my volcanoes, I miss the lush green forests. I know there are plenty of people who think I'm nuts for loving OR/WA. It rains there ALL THE TIME! :) The slugs are huge, Portland and Seattle are very liberal, the sky is grey a lot.....but hey, that's ok with me! I like slugs. I can live with people even tho they're wrong! tee hee Don't email me! :) And the sun is overrated.

I can't wait to get back out West, but for now, I'm happy to live here in Wisconsin. I just can't wait to get back out West....oh, wait, I already said that. :)

I would have to say I agree with you.. nothing is better than HOME!!

Nothing is like what you are used to. Everything is compared to home. I know, I do that all the time!

And beautiful on the Oregon coast too. There's no place like home, there's no place like home.

Wishing you were here too. Sniff, sniff.

Girl I am with you! I've been to Door County and I've been to the PacNW...there is no comparison....the PNW RULES! It's the only other place I would consider retiring to. Nuff said.
