Since my first trip to the Pacific Northwest almost 10 years ago, I fell in love with the cool summers, water and mountains. Along many of our travels we asked, what would it be like to live here? But we seemed to ask that question more frequently about Washington. Together, Josh and I have always shared a love of the Pacific Northwest and perhaps, nostalgia played a part…after all, we were married on Whidbey Island.
After a couple of scouting trips, we decided to make Whidbey Island, Washington our home. We prospected Seattle, the Kitsap, Bellingham and then on a whim returned to Whidbey….and we returned again, and again. It was a 180 degree difference from our life in Little Forest Hills just 10 miles from downtown Dallas, but we were ready to change our life a little more than just our geography.
Life in the Sound is a place to to document our acclimation to island life and life in Puget Sound.
