Shifting Gearts: TX to OR

In the winter of 03/04 I moved from TX to OR. My mother came alone for moral support. We drove all the way from Dallas, Texas to Portland Oregon. Every Friday we will be posting a little bit about our story in the most chronological way we know how.

The stories will be posted at MarillaAnne – I will be posting a link to it each Friday here. We love comments!
