    This year in a nutshell

    At the beginning of the year, my previous superviser at work made us pull a keyword out of a hat and asked us to spend the rest of 2019 to figure out what that word means to you. My keyword was “Important”. What is important to me? Is it my work? Fame? Family? Friendship? Or perhaps, my relationship? It took me awhile to finally realize that what’s important to me is me.

    Happy 4th from Downtown Kirkland!

    Happy 4th of July! It’s hard to believe that it’s been a long time since I last celebrated 4th of July. I haven’t seen a live fireworks show in years. The last time I can recall seeing a live fireworks show was when my family went to see it at Gasworks Park… and it was funded by Washington Mutual Bank (WaMu) and all WaMu banks were rebranded to Chase bank by the end of 2009. So it was that long ago since I saw live fireworks. This year we spent our 4th of July in a pretty lazy and relaxed way. By noontime, we head out to a local organic…
