A spontaneous trip to … somewhere …

Does anyone do spontaneous trips anymore? Getting in the car and driving anywhere can be fun, but I'm talking more like buying a plane ticket day-of and flying somewhere with no plans or itinerary.

Good-bye summer, hello fall.

I'm a little annoyed with summer. I feel like it didn't give us a proper good-bye here, in Seattle. Summer just sort of ghosted, like an Irish good-bye.

I was more worried about getting to… Continue reading The trip where everything just worked out

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
