Whew… it’s that time of week already! Last Friday fell during the end of my Seattle trip, but the most important day was still left on the itinerary—Summer Solstice. It’s a day of celebration in Seattle, complete with a parade and naked bike ride…
We dined on fancy tacos and beers and fries and gelato and pasta and champagne. It was a full day of celebration, meeting new and interesting people and embracing a new environment.
Just before sunset we headed to Kerry Park for some of the best views of the city. A majestic Mount Rainier made it’s appearance in the background. It’s really much grander in person.
I love this sweet moment I was able to capture of my cousin and her boyfriend:
These photos are proof of how bad this horrible drought is. Can you believe how low the lake level is compared to the water line?
Let’s hope we get some at least some precipitation this winter!
Here’s one more from a shoot I did after a mini makeover we did for my cousin’s living room… her pup is the absolute sweetest! More details on this transformation to come later.
And as always, I’m loving all the new discoveries I’ve made from you tagging your weekly inspiration with #jsphotofriday! I couldn’t just pick one so here’s two that caught my eye.
My girl Melaine @mysweetsavannah can do no wrong. I must have a stone fireplace like this one day.
And something about this kitchen scene from @nestingwithgrace just speaks to me… the soft palette, the lighting, the gold accents and hello, chocolate muffins…
Thank you ladies for the inspiration, let’s keep it going for next week!
On a heavier note—I’ve never made a request like this but, if you have any extra positive energy/prayers/vibes to spare… please send them out to the universe in my direction. I need every one I can to get through these next several days/weeks. Thank you, friends.
