Goodbye Portland



This is going to be my last post on Portland (OR) Daily Photos, the 366th post. I'm leaving Portland to Chicago on Wednesday. I'm going to drive all the way from Portland to Chicago, passing through 9 states; a 6-day long road trip. Pretty exciting!

I want to thank my blogger friends who I owe them much because of their kind support and love throughout these two years. The first days when I was new in Portland, I knew very few people and places and I was feeling home sick. My blog was a safe and warm place for me to feel that I have so many friends all over the world, to feel your support and love. After almost two years, it is still a safe and warm place for me to visit your blogs, view your photos, and make sure each of you is doing well in your own corner of the world. I've learned many things from you. You've changed my view to the world. I can't find words to describe your role in my life. I just want to thank you and shout out that I love you all: DinaPetreaKimElaineLaurieBibiJMAnnHopeBeckyKrisBabooshkaHildaJillyLynette, and many others. Dina, Petrea, Elaine, and Laurie you've been the best.

Please stay in touch with me via my new blog, Chicago Daily Photo.

Chicago??! I can't believe you are going (and driving!) to my hometown! And Northwestern, the university I dreamed of attending. What a campus, what excellence!
Oh that's great, Meead. You will love it.
Congrats on finishing your Master's. On to a Ph.D., wow!
Thanks for your kind words. It's an honor to be one of your old "aunties."
Have a safe drive and takes lots of pictures.
See you at Chicago Daily Photo!

Has it really been two years? Its gone so quickly. Congratulations on completion. Look forward to seeing Chicago through your eyes.
I don't look in as much as I used to (net usage is closely monitored at work) but I do keep an eye on what you are up to.

Best wishes, Ann.

Congratulations, Meead! I'm so happy for you! You're going to love Northwestern (except in the dead of winter, when you will miss the warmth of Mashhad.) Chicago is my old home ground, too, and I know what a great place it is.

I'm also excited for your road trip. I hope you have time to take it easy and enjoy all the wonderful places you'll be traveling through.

Meead, it's a pleasure being your blog friend (and "auntie"!). Stay in touch.

Meead, I too am honored to be among your caring aunties. You have shown us your excellence of mind and heart ever since we visited your welcoming and educational blog of Mashhad. Thank you for teaching us about Iran, and for giving us a way to feel more about the events there of the past years. The future holds great things for you, wherever you decide to go, and whatever you decide to do.

Have a great trip!

Gosh, Meaad... Something told me to check your blog today.

I feel so bad that I haven't been in touch for such a long time. This past year has been a hard one for me; many mother troubles and finally I brought her over here to be closer.

I wish you all the best in Chicago and in your life.
