I write like it's my job - because it is! I have a Master's in English and love words: crossword puzzles, Scrabble games, Wordle, and, of course, good, old-fashioned books.
I'm a writer and editor at OnlyInYourState, and a contributing writer at Cincinnati Magazine. I love the Great Outdoors and am endlessly awestruck by this beautiful country of ours. Coffee keeps me going, yoga keeps me sane, my kids keep me grounded, and my writing keeps me inspired.
Oregon’s small downs are undeniably captivating, offering a slower pace of life in the most scenic of settings. Troutdale, Oregon, is most definitely one of these lovely little locales. For not only is Troutdale a sweet community of around 16,000 that’s home to a bustling Main Street and loads of scenic beauty, this small town in Oregon is also hailed as the Gateway to the Columbia River Gorge, which is quite a big claim to fame.
