Our next stop on the Fruit Loop was The Gorge White House.
Everything about this place was like something out of a fairy tale.As I looked past the rows and rows of fresh U-Pick flowers, I definitely had another one of those, I can't believe we're finally here in Oregon moments. (I've lived here six months, do you think I'll ever stop having those?)There is an expression that's popular right now, "Bloom where you're planted." It's used to describe the attitude you get when you're trying to make the best of whatever bad (or maybe just not ideal) situation that you find yourself in. I get what people are trying to do when they say that, I really do. I spent years trying to bloom where I was planted. It's exhausting and at times very depressing.If I could give any advice to those people, it would be to do whatever it takes and make every possible sacrifice to Plant yourself where you can bloom.
My only regret is that we didn't do it sooner.
