I like tradition with elements of non-traditionality. Or maybe it's the other way around...I like non-traditionality with elements of tradition? Rita and I visited Portland's Peacock Lane for Christmas Eve, and topped the evening off with some thai food.

You all know how much I LOVE to travel. When I can't be traveling though, what better way to connect with the world than to host international students. I've always wanted to do it and now I finally am. Having Yu-Chen (Rita) here has been so much fun. It offers me new perspectives on the world and reminds me about parts of American culture that I can sometimes take for granted.
Creating friends as an adult has proved to be more difficult than I would have liked. It seems as if everyone is busy in what someone recently called "the Age of Busy". In an attempt to get as close to a Sex in the City episode as I'm ever going to get... Theo, Emily, and I have started a hiking club. Only bright, inspiring, beautiful women are allowed :) The following are from our latest hike to Opal Creek. Next month's adventure will include snowshoes.
