Woot! We’re taking a trip to Seattle! :-)

Mr. Man is going up to Seattle at the end of the month for work, so I’m going with him. It should be a blast! I haven’t been to Seattle in like, eleven years or so. I’m still trying to figure out what I want to go see… Pike Place Market is a definite, obviously, [...]

Friday Night on Treasure Island

We stopped off on our way home the other night to catch this gorgeous sight of the city skyline with the clouds coming in. It was such a cool sight. Unfortunately, my camera didn’t really do it justice, but you can get some of the idea.
