How I fell in Love with Whidbey Island

Have you ever landed somewhere, perhaps on a beach or in a coffee shop or maybe in a cute store owned by a member of the community, and found yourself falling in love? Have you ever been somewhere for a few hours and it already feels like home? That is exactly how I fell in love with Whidbey Island, Washington! My first trip was a quick drive through with my soon to be husband as we drove home from Port Townsend.

Olympic Hills; the Next Big Thing!

Another lesser known neighborhood in NE Seattle is Olympic Hills. It is primary a single family neighborhood tucked in between Lake City Way on the east, 15th Ave NE on the West, 125th on the south and 145th on the North.

Oasis in the NE Corner of Seattle

NE Seattle neighborhoods have a great reputation, including excellent schools, beautiful parks, close proximity to Lake Washington and friendly neighbors. One of these neighborhoods is Cedar Park, tucked in along the shoreline of Lake Washington. With its close proximity to the lake, schools, shopping, restaurants and entertainment, this little corner of the city is a gem, an oasis, away from the hustle and bustle of the University Village, Bryant, Wedgwood, Maple Leaf and Northgate. Cedar Park is characterized by its large lots, good-sized houses and, if you are lucky, lake views. The Cedar Park Neighborhood extends east from 35th Avenue NE to the shores of Lake Washington and from NE 12
