50 Northwest Parks in Summer

June 26, 2015

My guys want to visit 50 northwest parks this summer and I thought this was a really fun goal.  At first we pondered if we could go to the same park 50 times or if all the parks had to be in Seattle but we soon decided that we would only count different parks but […]

Because my kids are obsessed with Star Wars

April 9, 2015

My kids can’t help it in this city.  It’s like you have to breathe Star Wars just to live in Seattle and this has become even more apparent since my guys started school where they alternate playing zombies and Star Wars on the playground.  I think we live in the only city where I’ve ever […]

Slab Sandwich and Pie (Seattle, WA)

February 6, 2015

Don’t forget this place has AND PIE in the name. I was dying to try the avocado toast at Slab Sandwich and Pie when I saw it on the menu because I’ve only seen it at one other restaurant (Oddfellows is actually just around the corner too and I love eating there for lunch too!) […]

Some super easy ways to give back while you shop in Seattle this weekend

December 5, 2014

I volunteer for an organization that does a giving tree to help out our community and the wishes I’ve read so far have been so simple and beautiful that I can’t help but think how wanting the lists and lists of my family’s desires seem in comparison and it’s made me reflect a little more […]

Wildlights 2014 (Woodland Park Zoo, Seattle WA)

December 3, 2014

Wildlights at Woodland Park Zoo might be a newer light show in Seattle-it’s only on its third year-but we’ve been going since it started and it has become one of our family’s favorite Seattle holiday traditions.  The other night when we visited, the sky was bright and clear and there was still a dusting of […]
