The Other Washington 

Seattle

It's finally time to make this official and put it out into the world. I'm pleased to inform you all that at the end of next month, Cobra and I will be moving to Seattle!

This has been in the works for a while; you may remember that Cobra and I went to check it out there last September. There are many reason why we have decided to take this major step, and really it boils down to the fact that we're looking for a better quality of life in many regards. From the way everything has worked out so far, it seems like this is a real possibility.

Cobra is leaving on Wednesday (!) to drive out there with his truck and some of our stuff in a trailer. He's secured a job out there (unlike some of us, ahem) and will be starting at the beginning of March. I'll be staying here in DC, finishing packing and my work, generally wrapping things up. Then, Cobra will fly back at the end of March and we'll rent a moving truck to drive the rest of our stuff over. Yes, I'm going to be a lonely lady for a month back here, but I'm glad that Cobra, who has only ever lived in the DC area, will get some extra time to acclimate.

It seemed like we were waiting for this time for so long and now it's finally here. It's stressful and scary but ultimately, we are both so, so excited. While this choice was not easy to make, we are hopeful that leaving one Washington behind for another will bing us closer to many of the goals we have for our lives, both together and individually.
