It Wasn't As Scary As I Imagined It To Be

I've been working on my 34 before 35 goals and #5 has been the one I have been putting off.
You see, number 5 is to go to the top of the Space Needle
Which sounds so super cool but I have "issues" with elevators and heights.
I'm working through them though. 
I want to conquer my "issues" and move on, into my 35th year. 

I tried to talk us out of the event all together but there I was, ticket in hand.

Looking up at that beautiful structure.

I kept thinking about my fortune cookie fortune which told me that I would reach my goal. 

I made it up that scary elevator and my hands and feet were clammy but I was there.
I was at the top of The Space Needle.

Look at how brave I was. 
I let go of the structure and looked out at the view.
And what a view.

It was such a happy event for us.
On top of the world.

I looked for our home.

Daniel found our "first kiss" bench on Alki Beach.

To top it off my Daniel treated me to a big girl treat, a huge hot cocoa.
I am so impressed with myself.
I've been giving myself big pats on the back all day.
If any of you do visit Seattle, you must go up the Space Needle.
I bet you could even talk me into going up with you.
It was that much fun. 

love you,

Yahoo! Since you and Daniel made it up to the top of Seattle's Space Needle you'll have to make a special trip to Chicago to head up to the top of Willis (use to be Sears Tower) Tower ... 103 Stories high! :) Talk about a view, but I also enjoyed the view from the Space Needle when Lynn and I ran through SeaTac. :)

I'm not sure if I am that brave though i would love to come to Chicago and talk about going up there.

love you.
