Well, the title says it all. I'm officially a temporary resident of Seattle, Washington! I've been living in a duplex in North Seattle for about six weeks now, and I absolutely adore the Pacific Northwest. It's a beautiful corner of the United States, and I'm incredibly grateful for this opportunity.
What am I doing in Seattle, you ask? Well, my visit back in January left me enamored with the Pacific Northwest. I was curious about Washington and what it would be like to move 3,000 miles away from my hometown. In April, I decided I was going to take the plunge by the end of the summer. In August, I shipped three huge boxes of my belongings to Seattle, hopped on a plane with my cat, Opal, and began my adventure! I've been good friends with my roommate, Michael, for almost a decade, and we're thoroughly enjoying exploring the city together.
I'm only planning to stay in Seattle until Christmas. Since I didn't drive my car out here, I'm going to fly back to Virginia in December. It's difficult being away from my boyfriend, Kyle, and my friends and family, but I know this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, so I'm soaking it all in while I can.
So, there you have it! I'm excited to post about some of my adventures in Washington. These next few months are going to be a blast!
