+ seattle, part one +

This is one of those posts where I have no idea what to blog, but feel so guilty for not posting in so many days that I force myself to drop what I'm doing and type out a few thousand characters to ease my conscience.

I am in Seattle for two weeks visiting my best friend, and it is beautiful.

Plenty of photos will be popping up online over the next few weeks.

There is so much to see that I haven't been able to process half of it...and I am finding that I am desperate to go bury myself in a tiny coffee shop somewhere to get my mind and creative eye straightened out.

So far it has been incredibly perfect - I don't know what cloudy days and rain they are talking about...maybe it's another part of Seattle? :) I have walked miles already and have nearly cried three times over how breath-taking it is. I can't imagine ever running out of things to do.

Yesterday we woke up bright and early to take Eli to an adorable little farm out in Bellevue, and then explored a tiny little private beach on Lake Washington. We walked to QFC and Whole Foods and various other places to get some grocery shopping done in the late afternoon, and walked to The Pub at Third Place last night for incredible Lamb Souvlaki and drinks.

Alright, my conscience is eased! Time to walk to the Apple Store to pick up Snow Leopard, maybe peek into the bookstore down the street and find some morning coffee. Then we're headed to a farmer's market in Fremont, and then Waldorf Salad & homemade lemonade with blackberries on the beach at Lake Washington. Mmmmm. So excited.
