Six Months in Seattle

Hi online friends!

I&#8217m riding a wave of increased inspiration and creativity these times and hope that it will deliver me back again to running a blog (on my very own blog) much more commonly. It goes without having stating that 2020 has thrown us all several curve balls &#8211 it&#8217s been a very bumpy journey. But irrespective of every thing taking place around the earth, I am finding peace in our new location in Seattle. We&#8217ve lived in Seattle a entire 6 months now &#8212 just after indicating farewell to Florida and embarking on a 15-working day trek throughout the place. Even though we&#8217re even now incredibly much Seattle newbies, it feels like we&#8217ve been in the PNW a lot more time than that (my guess is it has anything to do with the &#8220continue to be at property&#8221 orders).

Six Months in Seattle

Margaret&#8217s Way Trail

Following a trying 6-week home hunt in January and February, I&#8217m extremely delighted with exactly where we landed &#8212 for now. An itty bitty 100-12 months-previous ouse in the Admiral District of West Seattle, I am embracing the pleasant neighborhood and group factor with all of my staying. I usually felt alone and isolated whilst dwelling in Florida, and so I&#8217m building a powerful effort and hard work to foster friendships in our new town (COVID has designed a number of hurdles which I&#8217m positive you can consider).

Every person claims summer is the very best Seattle season, and I&#8217m below for it! With no vacation ideas on our calendar in the speedy long term, regrettably, I&#8217m focusing on exploring all there is in and all over the metropolis. Largely all-around, simply because let&#8217s be serious&#8230 going &#8220into&#8221 the metropolis even now intimidates me, and I&#8217ll take a journey to the mountains above the metropolis streets any day.

These days you can both discover me a) on line, or b) outside. I&#8217ve been pouring huge quantities of time into both of those my Virtual Assistant and Beautycounter businesses. And when I&#8217ve overdosed on display screen time, you&#8217ll find me going for walks or operating close to my community, hiking a new attractive PNW trail, or dabbling in gardening (particularly observing Nick are inclined to our initial veggie garden).

I made a large batch of my mom&#8217s tabouli that we savored at the beach front in excess of 4th of July weekend, but other than that, I haven&#8217t been spending as well a lot time in the kitchen area. Although I&#8217ll generally be a nutrition nut and foodie at coronary heart, my GI issues often discourage me from getting creative in the kitchen as I go on to get the job done with many practitioners to both determine out and mend my sad gut. I&#8217ve generally considered wellbeing as a lot additional than the foods we set into our bodies and how substantially we move them, so in this summer months year, I&#8217m leaning into the many other aspects of wellness &#8211 beyond come to feel superior meals and exercise.

In this article are some pictures from our initial summer in Seattle &#8211 and it&#8217s just the commencing! You can locate me on Instagram sharing additional of our PNW adventures on the common. Will share a lot more below soon!
