Portland Girl - Living a Life Of Design, Not Default | A One Year Anniversary

One year ago this week (Wednesday to be exact) I was packing up my belongings, saying goodbye to friends and family and taking a giant leap of faith.  I was on the road, determined to live a life of intention, a life of design and no longer default.

I came to Portland, embraced all things Trader Joes and local markets, rolled up my pants to avoid the spring rain, and started living.

Join me this week as I celebrate, won't you?

ps- I'm also playing around with a new blog design.  What do you think so far?  Special thanks to Margaret Jacobsen for the photos of me!

What's the bravest thing you've ever done?
