I went to attempt to get a WA license today. I lost my MI one in Feb and have been putting it off. I had a copy of it and it is current, so when I called they said I could come and get a new one. What they failed to mention on the phone was - I could get a new one if I scheduled a test.
But not all was lost... Judson saw me check in and he was on his way there anyway. I pulled a number for him while I was waiting. He only had to wait about 5 minutes and he had his new license and then I got to hang out with him for a bit, too!
I love Smith Tower. Mark and I went up to the observation deck and enjoyed views of the city, but also the architecture and design of such a beautiful building.
For some reason, this building reminds me of Detroit.
I also got very good news while I was at the top.
The crew went on a road trip today, to meet Will at the end of the Ragnar race. We ended up on some fairgrounds in Whidbey Island, that I am pretty sure was some weird rabbit farm. We drank $1 beers, chased rabbits, were given a case of bananas, and rode ferries. It was a lot of fun.
G said he would not need a hoody on the roof, but I brought one anyway. After like 3 minutes, he wore it. It's totally too small for him and it says Detroit! Later, it was so cold, he was wearing his winter jacket. And this is summer in Seattle.
Daisies are my favorite flower. When I was a kid they used to grow in my backyard (and front yard) almost as weeds. I loved cutting them and I'd even bring them to my teacher.

My phone died today, and I forgot to throw my charger in my bag before heading out. I met my friend Valentina (by the way, if you ever need to hire a photographer, she is amazing!) for happy hour at Little Water Cantina and ordered the Tacos of the day! Delicious!
I went to lunch with my friend Chris, who also happens to be my neighbor. We hung out at his place after lunch for a minute and sat on the balcony. Between messing with crackheads, we noticed how cool the clouds looked over the sound today.
My mom was visiting (as you may remember from previous posts) and she wanted to send me a thank you note for my hospitality, which was so not necessary but very much appreciated.
A keg of Bell's Brewery Oberon, my favorite beer ever. You might think, why is this important? Well, you can't get it here, or even close to here. It makes this Detroit girl very, very happy.
Today was a random day. April and I hopped in one of my client's cars and took a very random road trip to the Oregon Coast. It is about a four hour drive, each way. Random, I know. It was so fun though.
Summer is, well, late to the game this year. It was a bit chilly on the beach at Cannon Beach, so here we are, in our North Face and Mountain Hardware, like true Pacific Northwest Transplants.
I should say, I did make it into the water though, waste deep!
Bob Fine, the creator of Social Media Monthly Magazine, stopped by the Belltown Pub to meet some Seattle folks and give away free copies of the mag.
