Wow it is Friday again!! This has been a week filled with ups and downs. Monday we had a ceremony to spread the ashes of a good friend. It really was very peaceful to be out in the water saying our goodbyes, but tough at the same time because it now seemed so final that he was actually gone. We spent two days with his wife, keeping her company and reminiscing.
Wednesday I received a phone call from a friend of mine from high school. We won't go into how long we have known each other, lets just say a realllllllly long time. He called to say he was in town and wanted to stop by. I was so excited! I hadn't seen him in 7 years or so. It was awesome to catch up. It seemed just like yesterday that we had been sitting together talking.
Yesterday was the first day of preseason and our Hawks played the Chargers. It was hard for me to see my two teams play against each other, and I did catch a lot of flack from my old friends for rooting for the Seahawks, but they won and I will admit I celebrated.
Now, why do I have a picture of Pikes Place Market on the blog? Well, Tuesday is my birthday and Pikes Place is one of my all time favorite places to go. I mean HUGE farmers market + food blogger? It's a no brainer right? The last time I was there was during the BlogHer Food conference earlier this year. Kevin went a long with me and one of the activities they had was a scavenger hunt through Pikes Place. We had a blast running all over the market looking for the items we needed to find. The game was played online so when you found items you had to take a picture and upload them to the game. This let me combine two of my favorite things...food and photography. I am hoping to go back this weekend, there is some smoked salmon there that is calling my name!
Now on to what has been happening here on the blog. This is a run down of the week.
