Missing Oregon

When I got to Orgeon last week I had six days ahead of me and felt like I had all the time in the world. Then it passed so quickly and was time to go home. While I love my sweet home and life, I always get so sad when it's time to leave places and I hate goodbyes. There's a special closeness in spending time with family and no matter how long the absence or how much we age, I find childhood affection flooding back when I spend time with my aunts. And I am still learning from them. From sharing our love of adventure in nature, cooking, canning, and crafts to exploring family heritage in pictures and stories. They are the best aunts I could ever wish for.
