I Am From Washington

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 133 People

    Proud to be a Northwest native.

    Life is greener up here. The wet and cold is refreshing and Seattle's summers are the world's best secret. Sorry, I can't keep it ;) The city, the lights, the needle at night... The water, the ferries, the trees... There is plenty of creativity and cultural diversity up here...

    I Miss It So Much.

    My dreams are haunted with the images of Skagit County. The Cascades looming, the Skagit and Baker and Suiattle rivers dashing over rocks, over fallen trees, over turbines. I moved to Minnesota 5 years ago, and it has been a struggle to stay here. I don't know how long it's...

    Proud of It, Too

    Washington is my stomping ground. The state has had its ups and downs, but I will never regret being from there. In fact, I always feel a source of pride calling myself a Bremertonian. :)

    True Beauty

    Since I was born and raised in this beautiful state, my heart will forever be partial to it. No other state has all four seasons like we do. And growing up at the base of Mt Adams was just about as close to Gods handiwork as you could get :)

    Washington Is My Home

    I have lived here all my life. I have visited other places but I just do not want to leave my home. Washington has a little bet of the whole world in it.
