Updates and Thoughts from Seattle

Seattle was absolutely wonderful. I walked through Pike Place quite a bit, drank coffee a bit more, and had amazing conversations with my brother all the while. I could not ask for more during that time except for more time. This is my favorite picture

We even stayed in the Olympic National Park for two nights. I wish the rain would of held off and the midst would have cleared when we went up to Hurricane Ridge to see the view--yet all we saw were thick clouds of gray and white. It was still nice.

My favorite part of Seattle became these tiny gardens that are sporadically placed throughout the city. When we walked to my brother's school we passed one quite frequently. He explained that you could purchase a small plot/square and garden whatever you'd like. Next to these particular green spaces were tiny houses that the city rented out to writers for a cheaper rate. I think it is a great way to bring gardens into the city and pull small communities together. Plus anyone from the city could just randomly walk though these gardens and enjoy the artistry. It was fascinating.

Until Next Time...

a caveat: My posts have been few and far between. After moving I have realized my internet is only supplied through the coffee shop I work at now. Therefore I must make a conscious effort to write random posts.
