Sun in Seattle

So! There has finally been a warm, sunny week here in the Pacific Northwest. Thank the universe, because I was about ready to go back to Virginia Beach! Well, okay, not quite... But the beach was becoming more and more tempting! It is amazing, the way that people emerge from their homes and places of work to bask in the glittering sun. It seemed as though the city was full, and ALIVE, which of course, was only my perspective. This city is always alive, people are always moving, it's just hard to notice anything past your nose when it's rainy and grey. 

The Aurora Bridge and a view into the Fremont waterfront.

The sun always gets me feeling good, serotonin is flowing, and therefore my creativity starts flowing again. No longer am I just surviving; I am shedding my winter skin and thriving in the sun. It makes me think about the future, and where I want to go from here. 

In order for you to understand my thoughts, let me explain a little bit about myself: I am 24, and I live here in sweet Seattle. I moved from a town about an hour away to the city in February of this year.. Me and my man, David. He is attending diving school, and I am working at Starbucks and trying to learn how I can start my own business, so I never have to work for anybody else again. Not that Starbucks is bad, especially here in it's home city.... But, well let's face it.. If you have EVER worked for anybody else, you know what I mean. It just isn't the same. 

Before I lived in Bremerton for about 5 years, I lived in Buffalo, NY for one year. I had the time of my life there, but wanted to come out West. Before Buffalo, was Virginia Beach, VA, where I grew up. I lived in a sunny, warm climate for most of my childhood.

My favorite thing to do is to create. My favorite form of creation is sewing. I like to design clothing, and have been doing it since I was in 13 years old. Everything I know about sewing I taught myself, and there is so much more I can learn. 
I am currently beginning my second attempt at an etsy shop. The first was fairly successful, but my design aesthetic moved away from the items I was selling on my shop. 
The beautiful Fremont bridge here in my neighborhood.
Now that you know a little about me, let me say that I am at a crossroads, and I am contemplating which direction to go. There is so much possibility in this world! What will I do? How will I get there? 

Even though I have all these questions, and no answers thus far, sitting in this beautiful sun makes me feel like I can accomplish anything I want. 
This is the start of my journey, and I can go wherever I decide. :)
