I kept going back and forth on whether or not I was going to make this a massive blog post, but opted for a little blog post so I can move on and do more little, regular blog posts. No one likes to read an autobio on a blog anyway : P.
The big news is that I moved to Seattle in January!
I have a new job (in product design—home and holiday decor) and new apartment with my sister! Work and life in the city has been amazing so far. Lots of new experiences, but keep in mind even things like going to the grocery store are a delight when you’re in a new place.
The Pacific Northwest is beautiful, incredibly green with abundant plant life, mountains, AND water. A big fat giant change is the lack of winter. There isn’t snow (on the ground, in the city. There's lots of snow in the mountains), and the LOW is in the mid 30s, which maybe happened a few times. Despite this, and being fully aware of the kind of winter I left behind (but don’t get me wrong, it’s wonderful) I miss Minneapolis. I miss my Minneapolis family an awful lot. But I stand by the notion that there are people you care about and are friends with forever, and there are a few of those people in the Twin Cities that are the best people I will ever know.
I’m pretty fortunate having a close sister in Seattle. Felicia has lived here for awhile, and she’s enjoying teaching me the ropes. Plus we get to catch up on being sisters after being far apart for about ten years.
Seattle is a really fun city to explore! I’ve sort of picked a few haunts already, though it’s a little soon. I want that good old city comfort that I had in the Twin Cities, but that does take years to build up. A decade, even :). I kind of wanted to expound on all of my exploration in detail in this post, but I think it might be better saved to work over the course of a few posts.
Can't wait to share more!
