We were so excited when my husband, Stephen, accepted a job with Amazon in Seattle, WA. However, we had no idea how chaotic our lives would become to make this move happen. We began to go through and pack things that have been lying around our house in Charleston, SC, many completely unused, for the last five and a half years. I had no realization as to how much stuff we actually had until confronted with the fact that we were moving from a 1500 square foot house into an 850 square foot apartment. Yep, we had way too much.
Seattle is absolutely beautiful and incredibly interesting. This is a city that I am excited to live in and truly experience. We can walk or use public transportation to pretty much anywhere we want. And we will still have our cars for Costco runs and camping trips.
I'm most excited about our patio. It is huge and perfect for spending time outside. I am looking forward to beginning each day with a cup of coffee and my laptop or a book sitting outside facing the Puget Sound. Yes, I think city life will do just nicely.
