Orcas Island 2016

Hello, June! I can’t believe you are here, already, again. They tell you life moves faster the older you get. They were right.

Nick and I spent an evening last weekend looking at our photos from the last year-and-a-half living in Washington, and we were quite surprised. “We’ve done so much!” Sometimes it doesn’t seem that way, but it’s nice looking back and remembering all the sights and sounds we’ve experienced. That’s one of the main reasons I want to maintain this blog: to document all those things we do. So we can piece together the past through pictures and captions and really actually remember all those good and wonderful times. And know for sure what we were up to. Without having to guess at the places and moments based on snapshots viewed out of context.

She also told me that she’s been here 20 years and just now feels like she’s seen enough of Seattle and the surrounding area to feel satisfied, like she knows it. Boy, do I believe her. I’ve been here a fraction of the time and am certain we’ve only scratched the surface.
