Farewell Lake Oswego

Tuesday, July 13, 2010

I always get a little sentimental when we are about to leave a location that we have lived in for a few months. This week marks the end of our stay in Lake Oswego, Oregon. One thing that I love about touring the country is my endless search for the perfect cottage. My husband knows me so well that when he saw the listing on Craigslist for a rental cottage in the trendy area called First Edition of Lake Oswego, he snapped it right up. The neighborhood did not disappoint with its treasure trove of cottage style architecture. I thought I would share a few of my most frequently passed homes that kept me happy during four months of rain. My three-year-old daughter now says, "Mommy, I just love that house" when we pass some of them. Nothing like training them young, right? :)

So here is my Ode to First Addition. I hope you like them as much as I do. No, they are not made out of linen but don't you think linen pieces would be perfect inside of them?

See you in California,
