Today’s Inspiring PDXer is Amanda, a long-time friend and constant cheerleader, resource and inspiration to me over the years. I’ve known this girl since I was a freshman in high school, and have the privilege of seeing what an amazing woman she has become over the years. Her passion, creativity and always-sunny attitude make reading her blog a delight- I highly recommend Rose City Romance.
A public relations/marketing professional. A storyteller. A dreamer. A domestic violence activist. A cupcake indulger. A domestic goddess-in-training. A networker. A Cabernet Sauvignon connoisseur. An aspiring photographer. A planner. A hopeful romantic. A travel-junkie. A social addict. I believe you get what you give. Whether it’s my career, my friendships, my romantic pursuits, my civic responsibilities or whatever curveballs are thrown my way, my life is fueled by my passion to give all I have in order to go confidently in the direction of my dreams and live the life I’ve imagined. Stop wishing. Start doing. Portland is America’s hidden gem full of creative, environmental, social and talented people. Meet and learn all you can from them. Take advantage of the beauty of our beaches and mountains, the freshness of our northwest gourmet cuisine, our greenery, the richness of our pinot noirs and craft brewskies, and live accordingly.
Thank you for being part of this, Amanda! I love that motto!
