Whoa - the pressure of what to say in the first few words of this blog is big! But I want this to be a place where I can just post thoughts without putting such high expectations on myself, so I'm letting it go.
I'm starting this so I can share more of my day-to-day life with people I don't get to talk to everyday.
I'm so tempted to catch you all up with what I've been up to, but instead I think I'll just start this blog with today. N and I are recovering from a very busy few weeks! We've both had a lot of hecticism at work. But tomorrow we're going to Seattle to visit family and friends and I am counting down the seconds!
We haven't had time to plan our visit and I have failed to let many people know that we will be in town. Nonetheless, I am VERY MUCH looking forward to seeing people I love, inhaling Seattle's damp air, and eating good food. I'm especially looking forward to dinner on Friday at Elemental. If you live in Seattle and haven't eaten here yet, then you're really missing out. More detail on what exactly you're missing out on will be coming after Friday.
We passed out Halloween candy to trick-or-treaters tonight. I bought 150 pieces of candy and we ran out by 8:30. Ours is a popular neighborhood for kids from all over the city.
Time to get packing!
