Bye for now, Seattle

I am a bit in disbelief that I fly to Virginia tonight at 11:50.  There's a certain nostalgia that comes with leaving a place where you've resided for almost 5 years.  I absolutely love this city and the past few days as  I've been driving, I can't help but marvel at the landscape.  Mount Rainier has been beautiful as the sky has actually been somewhat clear at times and the sailboats on the water make a picturesque view.  I've been able to soak up a few days of the absolutely beautiful weather that makes living in the Northwest totally worth it.

I feel so blessed as I leave because I know I am taking the experiences and friendships that I have made with me.  There are so many people here that I love and who have changed my life.  I feel so incredibly supported and thankful for my time here in Seattle.  I can't wait to be back in the Northwest, but for now I will carry the memories and friendships and hold them close.

For those of you who remain in Seattle, thank you for your presence in my life.  I am filled with so much joy as I reflect on my time in Seattle and those of you who will forever be a part of me.
