I have been really enjoying Seattle since I moved here. The landscape of the area is amazing and I particular enjoyed the trees, the flowers, the plants and the houses in Capitol Hill neighborhood. It's the end of the cherry blossoming season but it's still super pretty.
Spring is all about finding the unique prints! With the moving from coast to coast situation, my closet has been going through some major changes. I donated so many pieces that I have not worn in years before heading to Seattle. I still got so much to sort and organize. While living in NYC, I mostly wore dresses. To me It was just so much easier than matching a blouse with a skirt or a pair of pants. Especially during the summer, the heat in NYC pretty much encouraged me to stock up all the cute dresses for the past seven years!
It's been two and half weeks since I moved to Seattle. I have to say I dig the vibe.
The first thing everyone talked about when I mentioned that I was moving here was it rains a lot! And make sure to bring your umbrella. Well the truth that I discovered for being here for the past 2.5 weeks is it does get a lot of gray days but when the sun does come out, it can be the most beautiful place on earth. And by the way, the locals don't use umbrellas! People wear hooded rain coats (you see a lot of North face on the street) or wear hats.
I made a todo list during the last week and half while I was in Brooklyn. Most of which are going to the places that bring me joy and hitting the favorite restaurants in the neighbouhood.
Going through last year's photos, I did make a wish that I would love to see the cherry blossom again before my move to Seattle. It's not because Seattle has no cherry tress. Matter of fact, flowers are blooming in Seattle so speaking as I am writing this. It's the vintage vibe, the historical buildings, the sun peaking though through the flowers and the spring leaves that I will miss. It's the quietness in my morning walk through the allies and streets of castle liked buildings that I will miss. Throughout the years, I learn to treasure these moments since I know things can snap into madness once rush hour hits. I was lucky. I got to see the blooming flowers in my favorite spots in Park Slope before I left.
