Calling Portlanders

As we continue our due diligence for our upcoming trip to Portland, I’m feeling overwhelmed by the 95 neighborhoods and where we might fit in best. IF we make this move, my 7 yr old will be at his 4th school so I want to try our best to make an as informed decision as possible.

A long time reader of my blog (and now IRL friend) recommended I put a call out to any Portlanders (past or present) who would be willing to share their insight on the Portland suburbs. If you are interested in providing your experience living in the Portland area and answer a few questions I would like to hear from you. I can be reached at dolfynstar@gmail.com.

  • If you don’t have a clear objective, then losing weight will be much more difficult if not impossible.
    Some cases of minerals vitamins overdose could have fatal consequences.
    Have you finally given up on weight loss plans that promise great results
    but don’t deliver, no matter how hard you work at them.

  • Great idea, if I do say so myself. And knowing you, you have probably researched all 92 neighborhoods!! That does sound pretty overwhelming!!! I hope you get some good bites!!! Xoxo So much good luck in this endeavor!

    If you’re looking at the ‘burbs you might check out Vancouver, Wa. They have a super cute downtown district and it’s more affordable than PDX. I have a few friends who live there, so I can’t really speak to any other ammenities/questiond you might have. Helpful, huh?
