We have yet to find "the house" but I've already started changing location from Salem to Portland.
I honestly can't even count how many homes we have looked at so far, but the search continues. :)
So, any of you from Portland area that know of any houses for rent please keep us in mind....you can email me at email@example.com
This is from our Craigslist ad:
Professional couple (Clinical Psychologist and Artist) with one child looking to rent a 3+ bedroom home with private outdoor space.
We have a fourteen year old, sedentary Golden Retriever and a well-mannered house cat.
Excellent references from current and previous landlords.
Longer-term rental preferred. 1 year lease +
We are looking at Lake Oswego, West Linn, Tualatin, Beaverton, Tigard, Sherwood, Happy Valley and the general Portland area.
Flexible on move-in date.
Prefer 2400+ sqft.
We are going to miss our beautiful home in Salem, but we are looking foward to our move to the Portland area. We enjoy our living space (private front and back) outside and spend as much time out there as possible so we are looking for a house with a great outdoor area.
little world of Doll and Miniature Artists has lost one of our own, mystgarden
aka Kim Collins Fillio. Our friend, my friend, lost her battle with cancer.
She was only 48.
A very close local friend of Kim's has established a
Memorial Fund. The Fund page states (below).
If everyone could find it
in their hearts to just donate US $6 we can hit this goal easily.
Fillio was an artist known all around the world for her amazing lifelike little
fairies, no two were the same... She lost her year long battle to cancer May 25
2012, leaving behind 5 children and her husband. During Kim's fight she was
unable to sculpt and contribute to the financial needs of the family... everyone
pulled together going the extra mile...even though, her husband's profession as
a steel worker, can at times be sporadic.
Running between medical
appointments for the treatments, trying to keep the girls in their active
lifestyles, he had been laid off several times and we all know how hard todays
economy can be without any challenges.
The family is in need of financial
assitance to maintain their home and get back on their feet. unfortunatey, there
was no insurance to assist the family after her passing."
