The View


Trading this view of Mt. Rainer…

One of the things we love about our life in Seattle is the scenery.  It doesn’t hurt that we wake up most mornings to this view.  After moving from Arizona, to Washington, to California to Connecticut, Jason and I decided that it was time to pick a “forever” spot and let our kids finish growing up in one place.  Jason is originally from Iowa and I am originally from Southern California.  We discussed the places we grew up and all the places we had lived previously and decided that Seattle felt most like “home” for us and our family.  We moved here in 2011, eventually found a house we loved, and set about making our life here.

Fast forward to 2016 and our decision to move to Granada.  One of the biggest questions was where will we live?  (And how do we give up our view?)  Serendipitously, an expat family we have been in contact with during the past few months is moving out of their house in Granada just before we plan to arrive.  They put us in touch with their landlord, and everything fell into place.  Below is a picture from our home for our year in Granada.


…for this view of The Alhambra Palace.

We will post more pictures of our home and neighborhood when we arrive.  Can’t wait to experience this view in person!

Jason and Lori met in 1996 in the San Francisco Airport, an adventure that led to lots of travel, a marriage, three kids, and a pleasant life in Seattle, WA. They have decided to shake things up a bit and move to Granada, Spain for a year with their family. This is a journal of that year. View all posts by lnjwilbur
