A weekend to Washington to see a sweet, familiar face.  And what a beautiful weekend it was, neither of us were sick or totally exhausted from crossing the country, and there was just a general feeling of excitement.  There was music to be played, sweets to be eaten, markets to traverse, and grocery store trips that desperately needed for us to giggle in our pj's on the way to and fro. I was able to share the mossy green Washington forests with lovely people and we stumbled upon a dinosaur skeleton :o (okay, yes, it was probably a deer).  
The Pacific Northwest holds a certain depth of color and mist that often surprises my eyes when I look around - a type of scenery that I've never seen before.  Even in Seattle, the area is so lush and rich that moss is able to grow on the cement - scattered along fences and coating trees - a type of beauty that seems to say you can flourish no matter where you are.


  1. Your stories are always so lovely, your pictures full of atmosphere! Glad to see you post again :)

  2. Beautiful images! I've always wanted to visit Washington state; Josh spent some wonderful childhood years there.

  3. It makes me happy to know that there are still precious natural places around the world. And it's a good thing. We still preserve it. It must feel so overwhelming to be in those places. :)

  4. The colours and the atmosphere of the Pacific Northwest have stolen my heart! So utterly beautiful! Great shots!
