We are Moving to ....Staying in Salem

As many of you may know, we were looking to move to the Portland area. At first we cut out Vancouver, WA as the commute would be just too far. After some months we then cut out NE and NW Portland for the same reason. We then decided we didn't want to move any closer than the Tualatin, Lake Oswego, Oregon City, areas. At this time we began to consider looking at the Salem area.

We then found a couple houses here in Salem that we were interested in and fell in love with one. That was a couple weeks ago and today we found out we will be moving into the house we fell in love with in November! We would love to move in NOW! I can't wait! I'm already mentally decorating each room.

Here are some pictures they have of the house:



Have a beautiful evening!
