I have just moved to the Portland, OR area from San Diego. My closet friend and her husband live up here and she has been trying to talk into moving closer for years. I finally decided to take the plunge. I have lived in So. Calif all my life and decided it was time for a change. I work with babies and love it. For fun I like to bike ride (leisure) , hike (not too high) and am just learning to kayak. My politics are middle of the road and my faith is very important to me. I am pretty even tempered and love to laugh a lot. Friends are important to me and I enjoy meeting new people. Through this site, I am looking forward to meeting new and interesting people.
