After living my entire life in the South and Southwest, my family and I moved to Seattle in 2015. Eventually, the pull to return home won out, and we returned to Dallas, Texas, where we had lived previously, in the summer of 2018. Southern In Seattle was born from my need to write about my experiences as a new person in a place where no-one knew me. Since I am a southerner, it was most natural for me to share about that most central part of myself, the things I love about the South and being a southern woman. However, this blog is for anyone who has lived away from home, feeling lost in your new surroundings, not sure of your next steps.
Though I am no longer living in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, it has a very special place in my heart; Seattle is part of my journey. I am grateful to have called it home for a short while. I hope in this blog you find something compelling because Southern In Seattle, at its core, is about transition, bringing the things that remind you of home closer to your heart.
