I live in Marysville, Washington, about thirty miles north of Seattle. Unfortunately, my little town became infamous last year when a terrible tragedy occurred at one of our high schools. Even though it has been seven months since that day, our community is still struggling to heal.
But we will recover, because Marysville is a wonderful town full of great people. Originally a small farming community, known for growing delicious strawberries, our population has grown to over 60,000. There are still a few strawberry fields on the outskirts, and every year in June we have a Strawberry Festival with parades, games, and lots of strawberry shortcake.
We have a huge, glorious outlet mall, where I do most of my shopping. If only there was a Nordstrom.
I moved to Western Washington when I was twelve, and there's been no better place to raise our boys. If you ever find yourself north of Seattle, give me a call and I'll show you around.
