Ode to Seattle

I remember my first trip to Seattle like it was yesterday, but it was 11 years ago. I instantly fell in love with the grey skies, drizzly weather and mountain views. I spent my first free day at Pikes Market. I spent THE ENTIRE day at Pikes Market. I walked every square inch and stopped in every shop. I couldn’t stop telling my friend how much I would love to wake up every morning living here. I remember feeling like this city had an energy about it that just drew me in. However, everyone who lived here told me I would hate it if I actually had to spend an entire fall and winter never seeing the sun. They could not have been more wrong.

I cannot find words to accurately convey how much I love living in Seattle. I find everything about it breathtaking! I still love the grey skies, the cold drizzly weather, the mountain views, the foodie delights, the dog parks, … I could go on and on for quite some time. From my first visit I had this overwhelming sense that this is where I was meant to live and I was right. I finally found my perfect little space in this great big world.
