On New Year’s Day last year, we started our drive across the country to move back to Seattle. One of the first things we did was go to Walrus & Carpenter. Within the second week of January, I went to a two week training for my new job in Raleigh, NC. Mr. F and I had our 30th birthdays in February! All spring, we enjoyed going back to our favorite spots, restaurants, and adventures in Seattle. We went to San Juan Island over Easter weekend.We love ferry rides. In April, we went to Berkeley to visit our friend Mohit and go to Napa.We had lots of great food in Berkeley, San Francisco, St. Helena and Oakland! In May, we went to Discovery Park with our friend Hayes and her three legged dog. We also went sailing with Andrea in Elliott Bay. We also went to Whidbey Island and met her boyfriend, Mike!We went to visit our college town in May. We loved going to the Doubleback release party too. In July, we went sailing with Andrea and her Dad to Blake Island. We had an amazing steak dinner aboard the Denouement too. We took Andrea to Walrus & Carpenter for her birthday too, We went to the Washington Coast for the Fourth of of July with my cousin, Katy. We went paddleboarding several times this summer and once with Katy and Hayes! I took a seaplane to Victoria for work a few times. We went to the Willows Inn on Lummi Island for our 5 year wedding anniversary! We kayaked with dozens, possibly a hundred seals. We saw local tribes netting salmon too.We flew to Chicago and drove to Michigan to see Mr. F’s parents. We got to see my cousin, Katy too. We went to our first Sounder’s game with my sister, Katie. In September we celebrated my grandmother’s 88th birthday at Tilth. I also went to Irvine for work and got to hang out with my work buddy, Marie. We got In N’ Out burgers with animal style fries,and went to Laguna Beach. Mr. F and I went swimming in the Puget Sound several times in the late summer. My sister Katie’s birthday was at Gothberg Farms. While I was in Fargo for work, I met the rest of my family in Woodruff, WI for my cousin Jason’s wedding the first weekend in October. Mr. F’s sister got married in Austin, Tx the first weekend in November. I loved seeing Mr. F’s cousins too. It was fun going to Allen’s boots too. Thanksgiving was fun at Katie and Travis’ house. December has been pretty festive too! Happy New Year!
