the past two weeks...

 ....have been a surreal whirlwind. i met - actually met in person - some of the most lovely bloggers ever at the blog family meet-up in seattle. it was wonderful & so fun! we all had a blast & it turned out better than anyone could have hoped for. what everyone kept saying was that what was weird about meeting was that it wasn't weird at all. everyone clicked. i am so blessed to know such lovely people: amy, maggie, nicola, shelby, mayte, dillon, & natalie (in order, left to right, in next two photos). it's simply impossible to actually blog about the trip in a way that will give you the feel of it all, so i will simply leave you with a few photos : )

seattle was in the middle of the two week whirlwind. what started the two weeks was nicola! she came to visit me just like i visited her in january : ) we went to museums, art galleries, & tourist attractions. we looked at bridges, ate macaroons, & didn't get enough sleep. we crafted, we watched movies, & we traveled by ferry. we took multiple photobooth photos, browsed various comic book shops, & went thrifting for treasures. my parents & miguel were so great to accompany us around to many different places. we were busy, but we were happy! 









nicola left me on friday & i started to miss her the moment she started going through security to get on her plane. hopefully we will be able to see each other again next year!

as i am now missing everyone from seattle (nicola included), i am glad to seriously look forward to the mini trip miguel & i have planned in a few days to celebrate half a year of being together. favorite movies & lizzie's summer cd mix are on my packing list. i'm super excited to spend a few days with him : )
