Where in the world have I been? Cooking? Yes. Blogging? No. We have been a little preoccupied with processing our most recent decision: We are moving back to California!
Yep, Portland Palates will be more of a Northern California Palate in just a few short weeks.
For more details on the story, please visit my husband's webiste. The details have come together beautifully and very quickly, allowing Chris to take a job in Rocklin, CA. It's a bi-vocational role: an exciting opportunity with a friend's business that will also allow him to return to serve and love the people at Providence Bible Church.
This transition is so bittersweet. We love Portland and the community we have found here. It is hard to leave because of the people we love. It's also not hard to leave because we have such a peace about this next stage.
Living here was such a sweet time for Chris and I. We were stretched, challenged, encouraged, affirmed, strengthened and loved.
Portland brought out the best in us.
I'll write soon. Possibly from a new kitchen, and with the AC running full and strong. California here we come!
