ok, I am soooo slow!! I'm so sorry!! Thanks for your comment... I totally don't mean to ignore anyone, it was probably just a busy day and I spaced it. But in the back of my mind I remembered that I needed to get back to a few people about random questions, and sure enough I was right.Anyway... So exciting you're moving to Seattle! Exciting stuff. We started out living in Greenlake/Ravenna area. We LOVED it. It's about 20 minutes north of downtown Seattle or less, so the commute wouldn't be bad at all. We were just renting that house, but decided to move up 20 more minutes North of that, to Lynnwood. I really like this area too. With traffic though, Lynnwood might be an almost hour commute to downtown. I have a friend who lived in Greenwood area and that's pretty close to downtown with buses that he could even take to work. Bothell is a really pretty area too. The more you branch out from the city, the more reasonable prices are. Bellevue is also a nice area. Where are you coming from? What city? Email me with more questions, I'd love to help.Good luck with everything!
