We're Moving to Seattle!

Yes, it’s true, we’re headed West. Much, much further West than we’d originally intended to go! Let’s backtrack a bit here, since I wrote about Brian flying to Austin just a couple of weeks ago. Although Brian’s interview went fabulously, the company wanted to hire him for a different job at a later date. The alternative job sounded cool, but they couldn’t provide any concrete info on the “later date” so we decided to move on.

I’d already done a phone interview for a Project Manager position with Design Commission, a small interactive agency in Seattle, about a week before Brian’s Austin trip. I enjoyed my interview and felt really positive about the job and the company, but we wanted to wait and see what would come out of the Austin thing. When that didn’t pan out, Brian and I decided that we were up for a change in plans and that I should pursue the job. Within a few days of making that decision we were on a plane to Seattle to meet the founders of Design Commission and spend a weekend with the West-Coast Woodruffs.

Needless to say, everything went great! We loved the Design Commission guys and they loved us (or at least liked us enough to offer me the job and ask Brian to do some contract/freelance for them). We had a great time with my family, and concluded that getting to hang out with them all the time would make up for Seattle’s damp, gray winters. Nasty outside? Just stay in, stuff your face, and chat with all your favorite characters! Seattle is also a very dog-friendly city (dogs are allowed on the bus!) with lots of parks, and I think Cooper will appreciate the cooler temps. Next step is finding a place to live and coordinating the move…

  • Congrats on the move and the new house! It’ll be great to have you closer than the east coast. Happy packing and safe travels out west.
