We want to help you embrace the grey ☁️

We want to help you embrace the grey ☁️

Is it possible to bust through the grey in this city? Oh yeah. We think so. Thanks for tagging #theevergrey, Jenna!


Raise your hand if you’ve ever felt like you’re slogging through Seattle’s winter weather. ✋ You’re not alone, and we’re here to help.

When we recently talked with seasonal affective disorder expert Dr. Tobias Dang, he said something about how to best take advantage of the Seattle winter that stuck with us. His brilliant advice? Make plans.

We want to help you take on the rest of this winter with intention, so we’re launching a project called Embrace the Grey. This project is for those newcomers who’re nervous to admit how much they’re struggling with our dreary days, long-time Seattleites with lots of empathy and good advice to impart, and everyone in-between.

>>> Want to contribute and be part of the conversation on how we can all fall a little more in love with winter in Seattle? Join our Facebook group here.

We’re convinced we can all work together to make this time of year a little brighter, even if we can’t change the weather.
