The picturesque views of the Pacific Northwest aren’t the only draw to this enchanting nook of the world – there’s some charismatic trailblazers, full of heart and passion out here! When I meet these nonjudgemental folk, their ability to embrace cultural differences with open arms is astounding. The resulting dialogue is fostering growth at such a rapid rate, it’s like watching all the good parts of humanity on fast forward. The warmth is exponentially embracing me, and I have to share it!

My hope is that you use the resources within to laugh, and discover new ways to embrace your individuality and community at large. Glimpse the feel-good fashions of the city. Discover culinary customs to share at your table. Check out local art wares I’m slinging with friends and family. Tour the best summer festivals in Seattle, or travel to tucked away, backwood gems. By sharing these personal, liberating moments, I hope to foster an appreciation for diversity through its celebration.

So let the weird charm of the PNW wash over you – enjoy the quirkiness! After all, life is more fun when we lose our inhibitions, and celebrate.
