Latitudes And Longitudes

We spent our weekend visiting some of our favorite Seattle spots.
Alki Beach is one of the first places I fell in love with in Seattle. 
Dan took me there on our first date.   

We went with our dear friends Craig and Maria to picnic and give our goodbyes to Dear Alki Beach. 
Dan and Craig have been friends forever and I'm lucky because I love Craig's little wife Maria

We also went to Molly Moon's
My sweet friend Laura gave me a gift certificate (for my birthday) to go there for a treat. 
I had homemade honey lavender ice cream.
It was a delicious.
Thank you Laura.

I don't like goodbyes but I seem to get better at them with age. 
I am so thankful for dear friends who lift me up and stand by me. 
I feel so blessed. 

"Nothing makes the earth seem so spacious as to have friends at a distance; they make the latitudes and longitudes."
-Henry David Thoreau

p.s. If you ever visit Seattle (and you should) you need to go to Alki Beach and Molly Moon's.
You won't be disappointed. 
I promise.
