A Weekend to Remember

I met some of my best friends while studying in Sevilla, Spain five years ago. This weekend, we attempted to pull off a reunion. Unfortunately, Anna, Dagny, Casey, Jill, and Christy were tied up with other things. Julia got called away to work at the last moment, and Juli missed her flight. Nonetheless, Lindsay, Jessica, and I had a fantastic weekend!!

On Friday, Lindsay and I walked an overcast Alki beach and enjoyed a relaxing pint while Jessica was at work. Then, we all bonded over homemade lasagna and the Grey's Anatomy season finale.

Saturday started with cafe con leche and photography on Queen Anne. The weather could not have been better! In fact, it felt a lot like spring in Sevilla. Then, we headed to a very crowded Pike Place Market for produce and fresh salmon (for Sunday's dinner). All though it was crowded beyond belief, all the vendors were extremely friendly. After a brief rest, we enjoyed a relaxed dinner at my favorite wine cafe, Purple, followed by drinks at a few local bars. There's nothing quite like a night out with the girls!

After such a busy Saturday, we relaxed most of Sunday in front of the TV (a marathon of America's Next Top Model to be exact). Just before dusk, we headed to a few of Kirkland's waterfront parks for coffee, walking, and chatting. Finally, we wrapped up the night with a dinner of grilled salmon and pavlova.

Yesterday, we took the ferry out to Bainbridge Island for fish and chips, relaxing, and a bit of wandering. (Do you see a trend here?) It was really hard to see Lindsay head back to Tampa, but it was so nice to have enjoyed such a great weekend! I loved every moment of our girls' weekend while getting a chance to introduce George and my girls to each other.

sounds like you had a great weekend in Seattle right before you go up North. If we're lucky we might be back in Seattle right around the time you are back...but who knows...
