Where the bunnies are

There has been an influx of rabbits in the city of Seattle. Even our local paper wrote up about this bunny boom. I see the occasional one or two in my neighborhood, but not super often. My parents, who live in Seattle as well, always have visiting rabbits. In fact, my dad had to put… Continue reading Where the bunnies are

Weekends are for summer

Good morning. Logging in those long run miles. Road trips. Heat waves. Camping. More running. Forgetting sunglasses when I need them. Laughing. Dancing. Time spent with visiting friends. Waiting. Trying to stay hydrated. Watching lots of soccer. Bunnies. Here, there, everywhere. Shooting stars. Or, wait, was that a satellite? Celebrations. Barbecues. No, thanks, I don't… Continue reading Weekends are for summer

Embracing (a sunny) winter wonderland

It was sunny in Seattle on Sunday and instead of leaving Seattle and taking a ferry ride, my husband and I left Seattle and went to the snow.

A quiet, friendly, place

Daylight savings time always messes with my body. I hate losing an hour of sleep. But, I guess the payoff is that you have an hour of extra daylight at the end of the day. This past Sunday, on Daylight Savings Day, Bryce and I decided to make full use of the wonderful sunny weather… Continue reading A quiet, friendly, place
