Swifts at Chapman School

Even though I have some posts to catch up on, tonights events were too cool to not share right away.  When Andrez and I first moved to Portland, some friends told us about the swifts at Chapman School.  You can learn more here, but basically it's an event every year in Portland in September where the Vaux Swift's start their migration toward Central America and use this school's chimney to roost, or sleep.  Andrez's brother, Mateo, has been visiting and it was really fun to get to see thousands of birds flying over this school and park and into this chimney!

French Doors

There has been a lack in posting due to me working full time hours now (I was only working 30 hours a week for the first month).  Andrez and I have been really busy between work, getting work done on the house, frequent visits to Home Depot,  me being on the "Tour-de-Friends" as Andrez puts it, and living life in Portland!  I am taking this weekend to relax and enjoy being at home, something I haven't done in almost a month (although I'm not complaining!)!  

Last time I posted, our french doors were still being installed and below is the finished product!  Andrez and I love them, and I especially think Willis and Lucy approve.  We keep them open as much as we can to have fresh air in the house and they bring in so much natural light.  I think this is one of my favorite parts of the house now!
