We returned from our vacation last night, having had an amazing time, but so happy to be home, too! I'm just getting through my first round of coffee this morning, contemplating the huge stack of mail/laundry/messages waiting for me, and will be back with about four million photos tomorrow.

This is a view of downtown Seattle from the deck of the Bainbridge Island ferry, at sunset, on October 12, 2008.


Gorgeous photo. Welcome back :) My ornament kit arrived. It is lovely! Can't wait to steal away an afternoon to work on them. Thanks again, Cat ^..^

Glad to hear you had a great time and are home safely. Can't wait to hear all about it! What a gorgeous picture, I love it!

Yay! I am so happy you are back! I'm also glad you got to have a wonderful trip, and of course, I can hardly wait to hear all about it...

Awwww...Thanks for the Bainbridge picture. I grew up on the Island (a.k.a. "The Rock") and it made me smile to see the old ferry view! I'm glad you made it over to see my old stomping grounds.

That's always the worst part of going away, isn't it, all the laundry you have to do when you get home, LOL!

We're going to Seattle in mid-November. I've never been - what were your favorite parts? Any recommendations?

Did you love the ferry? I'm so glad you decided to ride out to Bainbridge and back. Hope you had an amazing time in Seattle.

I have 2 friends living nearby this picture.
I was already there, visiting them.
By the way. the first thing we did when I was in Seattle, was having some coffee on the first Starbucks of US :)

beautiful. seattle is on my list of places to go.

Lovely photo. Welcome back!

Beautiful picture! It makes me miss home.

Awww man! You're making me homesick!

What a glow you have captured on the city. It's good to have you back.

Missed you, but am glad you went now that I see that gorgeous photo!

Seattle is so beautiful this time of year! Lucky girl.

What a beautiful photo - glad you're back - can't wait to see more!


great picture - welcome home! cant wait to see all the photos :)

I love the way this city glows on inky-black water. That must've been a really gorgeous trip back across. Sunset on the Sound? nice.

this weekend I'm on your stomping grounds, but only for about 6 hours. Still, that's time enough for Powell's!

Your beautiful christmas felt ornament kit arrived at my home in london today. I love it so much. Looking forward to getting the children to bed and grabbing some sewing time. Thanks for your creativity...we all benefit from it.

being from chicagoland like you are, i'm just going to say HOLY COW! i know you'll appreciate the sentiment...seriously, you're making me all the more jealous to come to the northwest!

Welcome home. I am looking forward to the slide show.

Thanks for the photo of my hometown
All my family still lives in Seattle except me. I'm now a Desert Rat! Glad you had a great trip!

Glad you're back! Thank you so much for the sour cream apple pie recipe. I made it last week for Sunday night's dinner, and it was's the new classic. Thanks.
