Time flies and we all evolve and move on, but expect some things to forever be the same. We visit places we used to live and hold them close to our heart, or sometimes try to leave them far away in the past. Regardless, the time spent remembering is always sweet to visit, to feel the love of a heart city again. Portland is our "heart city". It has a big place in our heart, and holds some of our most cherished friends. But this visit to our heart city allowed us to embrace what we love about it while spending time with our forever friends. We could do this on a deeper level since we feel grateful to now call Alameda our home. The feeling is good. It feels good to leave Portland after the 3rd Summer visit knowing that each visit back to our heart city allows for new memories to be made and friendships deepened before we drive back to our home...wherever it may be.
