Bye Bye Boyfriend

As all of my friends and family know, my life has been crazy-whacko-nutso.

Not only am I STILL homeless (and by homeless, I mean I'm paying a mortgage on a home I purchased but can't live in), but my boyfriend took a job up in OREGON.

And I swear - if I hear "When does he come back?" one more time I'm going ape shit.

He's NOT coming back.  He. Took. A. Job. In. Oregon.  What part of that screams "I'M COMING BACK!"  ????

So with that being said, at the beginning of July we got to move all of his stuff up to Oregon.  We packed up a UHaul, sent his dog to his moms, and began our epic 1-way road trip to Portland!  Thank goodness I wasn't moving up there - otherwise we may have needed 3 UHauls for all the CRAP I have apparently accumulated throughout my life.

His mom and Dommy Salami (aka:  One of the brothers) came up the night before to say their goodbyes.  I was the photographer.

Unfortunately, Aaron is unable to have his beloved mess-of-an-animal dog in Portland until next spring-ish, so he had to pack up his puppy and send him off with his mom.

We then started our road trip the next morning!  We stopped at Crater Lake one day.  Crater Lake is just as beautiful as all of the pictures.  It's a beautiful location - but a ZOO on the 4th of July weekend.  I was also extremely surprised to see that there was SNOW in JULY!  What a crazy year it has been.

Then the next day we stopped at Smith Rock.  And rock climbed.  Because it wouldn't be a trip with my boyfriend without rock climbing.

It was a great little trip!  I miss my boyfriend dearly and don't get to talk to him that often, but I am used to him being gone on climbing trips so it's a little easier than I thought it would be.


  1. I think Crater Lake has snow year round pretty often. I remember my mom and I went in August when I was younger and there was still snow. It's such a gorgeous place to go!

  2. It was beautiful! I wanted to take a picture of everything, then realized I had basically 50 pictures of the same thing (the lake).
