Today though, I am sitting myself down in front of the computer and choosing to share some of the highlights from our vacation with you.
We were lucky to have a really clear day when flying to Seattle and for the two hours before landing, we were able to enjoy the beautiful views out of our window.
We also totally lucked out on the weather for the week we were there. The first few days felt like total summer and it even reached 85 on the Thursday. It felt so nice to be traipsing about in shorts, a tank top and sandals and still be sweating!
Being able to spend time with my sister Jackie was also pretty awesome. We realized that this was the longest we had been in each others company since I was in high school!
She had a pretty intense schedule of activities planned out for us (and yes, there was a literal schedule) and we were kept busy for the entire week we were there. We also did a ton of walking, which was quite the wake up call for this lazy person. At least it was gorgeous there, with all the trees, bushes and flowers. It felt like everything was blooming.
A couple of the main things we saw or did were:
The troll under the bridge
Pike Place Market
The first Starbucks
The ferry to Bainbridge Island
We also got to see lots of fun people! Not only did we love hanging out with Jackie, Kevin and their adorable baby Michael, we also got to see some childhood friends of mine.

Like I said, pretty dang cute.
Overall, it was an awesome trip and I am so glad that we had the opportunity to take it. I'd also like to say a huge thank you to Jackie and Kevin (and little Mikey) for hosting us for an entire week. It was greatly appreciated and we had so much fun.
