Seattle skyline [Capitol Hill] Canon EOS-1D Mark II w/70-200mm f2.8 L Zoom
When I was a kid, I wanted to be a country girl. Daisy Duke was my idol. I was 100% horse-crazy, and I'd daydream about living on a horse farm, with fields and trails, and no neighbors for miles. I wanted to live in the country. We lived in the suburbs.
But I grew up to be a city girl. A right-in-the-heart if it city-dweller, and I love it. Now, I can't imagine living anywhere but in the fun part of the city, and right now that means Capitol Hill, in Seattle, probably one of our city's most colorful, vibrant, artistic, and eclectic neighborhoods. I love being able to walk to everything I need or want. I love having so many of my friends living in my neighborhood. I love getting my morning coffee from Kevin, at the People's Republic of Koffee, right around the corner from my house. I love hooping in Cal Anderson Park, right across the street, on every sunny day. I love people watching on Broadway and 15th. I love that I can walk to my yoga studio in less than 5 minutes, that my commute to work takes l0 minutes, that I can be downtown by bus in 15 minutes. I love running into my friends and neighbors every time I leave my house. Living in the city is fun.
