I’m heading to New York this week for work, and look forward to sharing some delicious food photos upon my return. I hope everyone enjoyed a love filled weekend. 


Love Wins.

Dole Whip.


Seattle’s heat wave (mid 80s is a heat wave to me) means we’ve been practically living on the balcony each night.

Catching the clouds roll by during sunset is quite a sight.

20 Questions.

We all played “20 Questions” (or some variation of it) growing up, but did you ever play the electronic version that was big in the early 2000s? I’m a sucker for board games, but my obsession with this little power house was long-lived (it was basically my coolest electronic device before cell phones). How can such a small nugget pack enough mojo to guess what I’m thinking almost every single time? I don’t know, but I found it last week and am still in shock at the results. 

“Hamster,” “sail boat,” “camera,” “electric fan.”

 It. Got. Every. Single. One. HOW?


Summer Solstice.

Our anniversary falls on Winter Solstice, so Summer’s is a special time for us as well. This past weekend was warm and vibrant as the excitement of graduates and World Cup die hards hummed throughout our city. Though we don’t watch the games, or participate in Solstice parades and activities, we celebrated this weekend in our special way: enjoying each other and every speckle of our city one second at a time.
