My heart is in Vegas,
but I miss Seattle.

Friday, September 25, 2009

Not many words are needed for this post...

I miss Seattle.

I miss the neighborhoods, the trees, the coffee shops and the people.

I miss the pretty brick houses I used to walk past.

I miss the lake I used to live right by.

I really miss this girl.

I really, really miss eating with her at our favorite Mexican restaurant... and sushi restaurant, and pizzeria, and tapas spot...

I miss my family. I miss my friends.
I miss Yen - who is both friend & family.

I miss my favorite bars, where there is never a dress code.

I miss him and him and her and I only just met her, but okay, her too.

I miss my Danny, but luckily he'll be here soon.

I even miss Cameron who says he's posing like me in this photo. Um, okay. Thanks.

I miss the comfort and the familiarity of close friends.

I miss green.


  1. I get the same way about where I come from (NY). It's not easy being in a place that (I can only assume) is so vastly different from your place of origin. Sigh.

  2. Beautiful photos. What did you use to take them? Do you guys plan on staying in Vegas long term?

  3. I have been cursing at every cab horn, bus break and siren lately. its probably a funny thing to see. i love it here (ny) but i miss small town living too.

  4. :( I'm sorry, pookie pants. Are you going back for the holidays or anything?

  5. My sister used to live in Seattle...she misses it too, I always wished I had gone to visit her... there she always talked of how beautiful it was

  6. Missing a place and people you love is really hard sometimes, isn't it? I'm in OH for school, but I can't wait to get back to NJ (where I'm from).I hope you get to go back for a visit soon.

    Love your blog!

  7. Seattle misses:

    Your beautiful smile.
    Your dance moves.
    Your chopstick talent.
    Your love of a good comedy sketch.
    Your hostess skills.
    Your macaroni (that's homemade, right?).
    Your Fuzzy Pumas (world tour on the horizon).
    Your everything.

    I'm speaking as the royal Seattle, of course, but it's safe to assume the above is correct.

  8. I can see why you miss it. It's lovely. Definitely on my travel lust list!

  9. hi from Malaysia...nice blog u have here :)..yeah,moving to new places are quite hard when ur heart stays in the former town...

  10. Seattle looks gorgeous. I've never been out to the west coast but would love to visit.
