Federal Way: Here We Come

At least we won't be homeless. Robb signed a lease yesterday for a great apartment in Federal Way. It has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a fireplace, a balcony with a storage room, full size washer and dryer, and a remodeled kitchen with brand new appliances and countertops. It's over 1,000 square feet, has a heated pool at the complex, as well as a really big gym. It's definitely an upgrade from our current apartment. The only negative about it is the city's location. Federal Way is probably about a 30-40 minute drive from Seattle, NOT during rush hour. And it is about 20-30 minutes from Tacoma. While we would have preferred living closer to Seattle, we couldn't pass up this place. It's possible that one of us might even work in Tacoma, so living between the two metropolitan areas might work out well. Yay, we have a place to live!

Congrats! You'll have to post pictures once you move in. I bet your excited! My wife and I have just started our journey, we listed our condo for sale, once it sells we will be one step closer.

Hey....its closer to Seattle than Orlando is! Congrats on having a way. We are in an "outer" place too and loving it.

Katherine: As I wrote to Robb, I'm very, very happy for both of you having found such a nice place in Washington. I don't think you'll regret it once you're settled in, and are into the daily routine of your new lives. Being between both Seattle and Tacoma has distinct advantages, both in professional and cultural opportunities. The apartment floorplan itself looks luxurious, and will be a welcome place to come home to at the end of the day, or for hanging out on those long, cold Washington winter weekends. Congratulations on another good decision, you two!
