Seattle

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on September 19, 2011 by Samantha Rose

As pretty much everybody I meet knows, I love Seattle with all my heart. It’s my home. When I lived there, I fell in love with the city despite all the crap me and my family were going through there. My heart aches when I see pictures of the skyline or my favorite spots in the city (the Starbucks we would stop at on the way to school, University Village, the pier where my dad would take me fishing…) Small town life can not satisfy me since I have had a taste of the city. I miss everything about it–the slight fish smell in the air, the cloudy skies, the green life that stayed in the plants even through the winter. Heck, I don’t even care that a city is dangerous. I’m fine with locking my doors if it means I get to live in that beautiful place.

The reason for this post is that it’s raining here today. I love the rain because that is when I am reminded of Seattle the most, even though our Montana rain is different. The smell is not the same, and the rain is much colder here than in Seattle. But still, it is a small taste of home, and I will cherish every drop.
