Dare I say that I’m happy in the Northwest??? Ok (big humbled gulp) I dare. I AM happy! I must admit. It’s been 6 months. I haven’t been through a solid 4 seasons here yet, but I’m loving it here this time around. I feel like we live in a magical forest where everything is green and lush all year round (for the half that I’ve been here for). The rain is enchanting and renewing, and a little scarce this year (which might be adding to my joy). I’m beginning to find friendship and solidarity with other moms. I’m in love with my neighborhood. I’ve truly never encountered a more welcoming, helpful and open group of neighbors. This among so many other factors leaves me knowing that our home was supernaturally chosen for us!
