Thanks to my sister's insane place in Seattle, I often find myself perched above it, staring out into the increasing expansiveness of the city. Albeit under constant construction, Seattle is such a pretty city - not so much for the architecture, but more for the nature that's so beautifully incorporated into the city scape. Combine this with being one of the best eating cities I've ever been to (I'm sure I've said this a million times already), and it's hard not to fantasize about living here. Until you realize that you're fantasizing about it in the dead of summer and that the cold is coming, and that you really, really hate the cold...
