I've now fully embraced that summer is over. I have welcomed fall with open arms and an open heart. But, I didn't know that I'd have to welcome winter at the same time. Weather in the Seattle area has been unpredictable recently. Two weekends ago, temperatures suddenly dropped to the 40s — yes, I'm using… Continue reading It’s beginning to look a lot like winter
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. (You know, when you sneak out of a party without saying "bye" to anyone). It's not uncommon for September to be the best month in terms of… Continue reading Good-bye summer, hello fall.
Remember how I last wrote that I am the PM of my summer? I've done such a great job project managing my summer that I'm now having a hard time keeping up with my blog. When I travel, I jot down notes in a notebook (or, in the notes section of my phone) so that… Continue reading When your life can’t keep up with your blog

Oh, and redemption. But, I have a running blog to write about that. It's safe to say that a… Continue reading Random thoughts on running and recent travels
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
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
