After last week's antics, Matthew and I decided a little getaway to Seattle was in order. Thankfully our dear friend Amanda was just finishing her end-of-quarter craziness (she's in an amazing business/food/changing-the-world Master's program) so all three of us were able to take a collective breath and just relax. We started off the trip with a lovely Christmas party and their adorable little yellow house.
Food, frivolity, friends, laughter - just what the doctor ordered.
We finished up our Christmas shopping, made an Ikea trip, tried out a new Ethiopian place, and laughed like crazy. I can't explain how restoring it was - having meaningful conversations with a good friend, feeling uplifted and energized...it was great. And exactly what I needed. Thank you Amanda!
Have a happy, festive week! :)
