A lot has happened since my last blog post… As I haven’t been great at keeping up with it! …oops! Maybe someday I’ll have free time…
Mostly what has happened is: I am engaged to a man I love so much!! The last 3 years of being single has taught me much about myself, God, and others around me… I can’t say I loved being single, but I am grateful to be able to look back and see how much I grew and was prepared by God to proceed into this next season of life. I feel honored to have met and now be engaged to an amazing man who is smart, reflective, funny, loves the Lord, and isn’t bad on the eyes! This year will be my biggest year yet, and I just can’t wait!
In sharing that little piece of my story this year, I am posting pictures from our first vacation together! We were able to visit my parents and explore around Seattle (it was fun taking Brock for his first time!) Thank you to my parents & brother & Kate for giving us such a good time!
First Stop: The Starbucks Reserve Roastery & Tasting Room. This is place is like starbucks elite… fancy coffee, coffee flights, reserve roasts not available at regular starbucks, and it looked really nice too! Definitely a fun stop if you’re ever around!
Next stop: the iconic space needle! need I say more…
Our last main stop of the day on friday was the EMP: Experience Music Project. It’s a really cool museum that captures the music and style of Seattle/the pacific northwest. And RIP Prince… there were tributes everywhere!
Saturday was family day! We rented a minivan and took the Puget Sound by storm! We started with a ferry ride from Edmonds to Kingston.
When we arrived in kingston, we drove up to Point no Point lighthouse, such a senic, beautiful spot! Made me happy to be a photographer!
We had a little otter friend come out to play for a second!
Jumping pictures all around!
We had a little lunch break in Poulsbo, Dad wanted to be the karate kid and we became vikings for a moment!
After poulsbo, we rode the Bremerton ferry over to downtown Seattle!
We ended the day on a fun note, celebrating our engagement and my dad’s and my birthdays at Salty’s, which had a great view of the city if I do say so! Till next time Seattle!
