With Ashely at SAM.
We saw the Nick Cave show. Wow.

Admiral Benbow Inn -Actually now the Heartland Cafe...but they kept & refurbished the old back room that looks like the inside of a pirate ship...complete with ship windows and an '"ocean" (fish tank in the floor).
I didn't drop off the face of the earth...I was just in Seattle ;)
I lived in Seattle from 1999-02. I met my husband there. Many good friends of mine still live there, and it was so good to see them all.
I was able to meet up with some new friends, too. I had a wonderful lunch date with Linda of Linda Ferrol Studio- it was as if we had known each other forever! The internet is a wonderful tool for bringing kindred spirits together. Ashley and I were also able to bum around for an afternoon of fun--we visited some of her favorite spots in the city. Her keen eye and sense of style never ceases to amaze me.
Even though it has been a tough winter (& spring so far) in Seattle, and it was quite cold and rainy during our visit, all of the cherry blossoms were bursting into pink and white clouds...so beautiful!
We will actually be traveling again to Seattle in July for a wedding- I can't wait to return!
