Five years ago today, I drove into Seattle with all of my belongings crammed into a 2006 Honda Civic. I checked into my hotel, drove to sign a lease, and started unpacking my belongings, one by one, into my new apartment with my dad. My window looked over the garbage cans and the carpet looked like it came out of a doctor’s office. I was happy and hopeful, though my apartment left much to be desired.
Fours years after that (and one year ago today), I nervously sat across the table from a cute Jewish boy at a Mexican restaurant on the top of Capitol Hill. After four hours of talking, and multiple refills in our water glasses, our lunch ended and I walked away with the sweetest smile on my face. I even snapped a picture of our table that day to write about on my blog.
We’ve been together ever since.
Happy anniversary Seattle, and happy anniversary Babes. Here’s to many more.
