...a trip to Seattle

Katie and I have been incredibly busy this fall--she, with classes and work, I, with...that place I vowed not to think about for several days. And since we live 3 hours from each other, insane busy-ness means that months go by before we get to spend time with each other. So we planned a weekend getaway to kick off our Christmas vacation. She wanted to get out of Portland, and I wanted to get out of Dodge. It didn't take us long to agree--Seattle it was.
We got in late Friday night, walked throught a questionable neighborhood to see the Space Needle all lighted up,
got up early Saturday and spent a fun, fun day seeing the sights,
shopping,
and enjoying each other's company.
This may just become a new tradition!

It was Katie's first time up to the top of the Space Needle, but it was so foggy that there was nothing to see. Did that stop us from having a good time? Not in the least.
Dear Santa, Please tell mom that I really, really, really like those boots!
Accapella singers and little children busting out the moves.
The "gum wall" at Pike Street Market. Ew.

Dear Santa: Please make me as tall, long-legged, young and lovely as Katie! Please don't put me within 25 feet of that gum wall. Love, Limes

Limes, Katie lucked out in the gene pool. She is tall and lean, just like her Grandma Em on her dad's side. I had never seen the gum wall before, although I've been to the market several times over the years. It was...an experience!
