My husband and I have lived in Bellingham for over 12 years. Nestled in the breath-taking neighborhood of Sudden Valley. Though we have the desire to travel and visit other places around the world, there is truly no place like home! Bellingham just suits us well and we are grateful to be able to call her home.
We have 3 grown children. Our boys live here, and our daughter and her family live in Colorado. And we have 4 wonderful grandchildren! They all love Bellingham, too! As you search this website, you'll find pictures of us enjoying our lives here.
My husband came up here on a work contract and our wedding anniversary was coming up, so he planned for me to join him for a 4 day weekend together. I flew up from Colorado and landed in Seattle where he met me. We stayed in the penthouse suite at the Double Tree Hotel, not far from Sea-Tac. That was awesome!
The next morning we got on the 99 to the Mukilteo Ferry that would then take us to Whidbey Island. We stayed on the 99, and drove along Chuckanut Drive into Bellingham. Had our anniversary dinner at Anthony's on the Bay! (That's "our spot" every year, now!)
By the time my 4 day weekend had ended I knew where I wanted to spend the rest of my life! It was truely a life changing experience. (You see, I wasn't looking for a change in residency before this 4 day weekend occurred.) Bellingham just kind of romanced me in! This city can really have that effect on you.
I went home, packed and got my house ready for sale. That was in May. July 4th weekend I made my permanent residence in Bellingham, WA. I have never looked back.
There are many reasons why I love Bellingham, WA. The list grows as time goes by. It's just a gorgeous area all around. It's truly a little bit of paradise on earth.
I love to music, dance, and entertainment and Bellingham has great venue's. I love to hike and be active...water sports, fishing, hiking, running, and crocheting... Being able to enjoy all these passions have been fulfilled by moving here. Everything I ever wanted in a city, to call home, and retire in, is here.
You could also say, I'm a hippie-chic! Bellingham was noted as one of the "hippiest places to live", by the way. No wonder I feel so at home here!
It's easy to blend right in here. Bellingham is "home" to a wonderful diversity of people. I have been inspired to even fulfill my life long dream of working at home since I've moved here.
I guess you could call it a "career" though, I consider myself an entreprenuer. I absolutely love what I do and it's definitely not a "job!" If you wanted to know all about me, I would have to write a novel. I been around the block a few times and I've worn many hats in my day. I started waiting tables when I was 12 years old. I've driven long haul across the U.S. and Canada, cut meat for years at a slaughter house...you name it, I've done it. No matter what I did, I was always felt I was fulfilling someone's dream, not mine. My life was all about them, not about me.
One day I "woke up" and realized I wasn't getting any younger and life just seemed to be passing me by. I've always dreamed of running my own business. Doing my own thing. Being my own boss and making money doing "something" I really loved. It took me years to figure out what would work for me.
Well, one day while surfing the internet, I stumbled upon SBI (short for "Site Build It"). They ended up being the catalyist to helping me make my own business dream a true reality. I am convinced that anyone can succeed with their all-in-one process, tools, and guidance! I know if "I" can do it, anyone can! All I needed was a passion, a computer, and for less than $1 day, I built www.Bellingham-Subdued-Excitement.com! The results, so far, have exceeded my expectations.
I no longer live "someone else's dream". I don't fight with my alarm clock anymore and I can really live the way I want to and be here for my family and make a decent income. I can even build my business online from anywhere in the world! Now I have 2 website's that I actively work on and I work on them from Hawaii, however, not for long as I am heading home. The point is...I can do this from anywhere! Including at home in my pajamma's or on top of a Mt. Baker!My new site is called Crab-O-Licious.com it's all about crab, which, I absolutely love. I love to go crabbing out around the San Juan Islands.
And this is not all. As an entrepreneur and one who loves to stay busy...
My husband and I have partnered up with a company to help other people prosper in more ways than one.You can check us out at Let's Prosper Together.com where we show people how they can make a good living at home and live healthier lives. (The link will open into a new window.)
