And so it begins …

Hi!  My name is Hayley and I am  living the Bohemian life in Seattle!  Having recently moved here from a small coastal town in California, the big city seems like paradise to me.  So much to do, so much to see, so many hipsters to meet!

On the subject of Seattle, I find the whole concept of the “Seattle Freeze” (a name meant to represent the supposedly stand-offish character of the Seattleite) to be less than true.  Why does everyone think this?  So far, everyone I have crossed paths with in this city has been relatively friendly.  Perhaps this is due to my devilishly good looks and womanly charm?  One does wonder …

So, why write a blog?  It’s not very original nowadays, by any means.  Everyone and their mother has a blog (well, my mom doesn’t … yet).  I suppose I want to use this as a way of setting down my observations on starting a new life in a new city.  There is a lot to learn just from watching and from throwing yourself into new experiences.  If there is one thing I’ve learned about myself, it is that I tend to get into interesting situations without really trying.  It will all make for good stories for the grandchildren.

Forewarning to Seattle: Here I come!
