Be Happy Where You Are!

I was born and raised in West Virginia, after Jeff and I were married and already had Amy and Brad, we headed for Seattle. We heard all the rumors about the gray days and the rain, but still when we arrived on the 4th of July weekend to gray skies and rain...we fell in love! We had just left West Virginia with its HOT and HUMID weather and after so many years of that ...we were excited for a different climate all together. We have lived in Seattle now for 25 years and have NEVER looked back!

So does it rain a lot in Seattle? Yes, but still I love it here! I don't mind the gray, to me it just feels cozy in our home and it even makes me want to be more creative! Don't get me wrong, I love the sun but I do realize that in order to live in a beautiful green place like this...you have to have some rain! I do love it here and for that I am grateful. I hear many people complain about it a lot. I hear how it makes them depressed, so I am very thankful that is NOT something I struggle with. Being Happy Where You Are is a big deal, I am just grateful that I can live here, a place where I want to be!

Good night dear friends!
