I grew up in the Pacific Northwest, met an amazing Dutch guy at university, and ended up living full time with him in Holland after graduating. In 2011, we decided to pack it all into a container and moved back to the Northwest, this time as a family of 3 and fully loaded with belongings and memories. As you can imagine, there are things we miss terribly about the culture, the country, the way of life we had. But there are also things we love about living in Sammamish. It’s really too bad we can’t have the best of both worlds but I try to make it work by blending both cultures.
