This is going too well...

Everything in the past few weeks has been working out way to well. I am starting to become suspect of the whole thing. It has become almost comical. I will admit, waiting for the call about that job was stressful and not-ideal; but everything since has been cake.

We signed a contract to sell the house within 5 days of hearing I got the job. Thanks to our secret agents Barrett, Shaun, and Nancy we found an apartment I think will be a complete dream come true.

Here are some photos/info:

Cross your fingers, I think we are the first to apply for it, and should hear by Mon. or Tue.

There is a beautiful park across the street called Couch Park. They have an area where dogs are allowed, they provide the doggie bags.
Here is a photo of the park, I believe taken from the roof of the place we want to live in:

How perfect is that? It is THE location we fell in love with when we visited. We will be able to walk to dozens of restaurants, bars, coffee shops, a movie theater, grocery store, etc...

To get to work, I have to walk about 2 minutes to the street car stop nearby, ride it to the South Waterfront Stop. Get on the Tram (the Gondola thing below) and ride it up to my place of employment. How can I not look forward to that everyday? I promise to take photos on pretty days.

OH and that park across the street has free Wifi as part of the free Wifi the city provides.

Why did I live in Oklahoma so long?

Just beautiful! I found your blog via the portland metro blog - my partner and I are hoping to make the same move in a few months and just starting our journey. We live up north of seattle, transplants from Madison WI. I hope ours falls into place as nicely as yours has. It's amazing how life comes together when you find your right path, isn't it! Best wishes on your move.
