OK. That’s not the only reason. But having easier access to the stuff we like to do was a big reason we started looking, and now that we’re here, we’ve been amazed again and again how easy things can be.
A trip to Ikea to buy a table for our dining room? About 15 minutes. Need a couple things from the hardware store? There’s a great local shop in Bellevue, just a couple of minutes up California Avenue.
And the Sharp Edge? Although we hadn’t been there for a while, the bartenders still know who we are — even though it took us an hour just to get there from our last home in Butler. Compared with that, tonight’s drive was blissfully short.
We’re going to like this. A lot.
