Bon Voyage, Niki!

Last night/yesterday was one of those days that the cosmos aligned and 5 friends spontaneously had an amazing time - on a Wednesday! Well, it wasn't entirely spontaneous as we planned a good-bye lunch for dear Niki who left this morning for New York. What a sad day it was. So the rest of us drank! I love the random luncheon that turned into 9 hours of girl time, shots of tequila, buying bright orange pants, getting caught in a wind storm, Thai food, and good conversations.

Niki - we will miss you. But you are only far in distance. Nothing can separate your dearness to our hearts.

Well, I'm off after work to spend a day and few nights at the cabin with my beloved. A much needed retreat away for us both, I think. I'm kind of glad in a way that the weather is supposed to be gloomy. Nothing like cuddling up watching the rain on the ocean in a warm snuggly blanket. Me thinks some watercolors will be in tall order...wonder what the gloom will bring out.

Gosh, that was so fun last night.

We need to plan more spontaneous things. :) THat is totally backwards.

Hope your orange pants, watercolors, blankets, and books ease your elfish little soul this weekend.

I wish the same for me, but alas - have to be with family...:)

Yes, orange pants, watercolours, blankets, all sound so good, but NONE of those will happen in the 115 degree heat of Vegas (baby).

Have a wonderful time!

Thanks for an absolutely fabulous and amazing last day in Seattle. I find it amazing that the land was crying where I could conjure nothing. . . interesting huh?
