9 months in!

Just doing a little calculation in my mind that it’s been almost 9 months since we moved here and life has never seemed so busy ever!  Even when we owned the business I don’t feel as though it was this busy.  Perhaps some of it, maybe most of it, is kid driven based on play dates, science fair projects, basketball games and hip-hop classes (Kayla not me) but I think in general we’ve just taken on a much more energetic life.  Now I don’t mean energetic as in working out I think it means more so being involved and out and about.  Some of this might just be thinking differently about how life was back in the AZ – who knows.

Denise and I continue to finish up school with Denise being much closer than I but both of us feel as though we’re probably just going to continue on down our higher education path and rightfully so.  Up here a bachelors really is equivalent to a highschool diploma if you want anything more than burger flipping or baristaring (although I would bet most of the good baristas also have ba degrees!) so it makes sense we would continue sweating and perservering to get our Masters degree.  This way we can be better role models for the kids too!   I shall be glad when it is finally over however, however long the entire process takes, but Grand Canyon makes it really easy to get in to classes and focus on the work.

Well this is a super exciting update, that much I am sure of, but if you made it all the way through kudos to you!  Maybe leave a little comment?

While the rest of the country bakes…

So while the rest of the country baked in unbearable triple digit temperatures we here in Seattle, plus some surrounding areas I suppose, enjoyed some lovely weather.  Most people around here tell us to not get used to it but to be completely honest we’re digging the cold overcast days as much as the 80 degrees and sunny!  It might sound weird to the average Seattle dweller to enjoy the dark days, and I am sure we will one day not be so happy about those too, but it is refreshing to see something other than the blazing sun. Yuck.

A new spiritual center!

So we tried out a new spiritual center in north Seattle, Center for Spiritual Living, which was great!  They have a fantastic kids program which really is a blessing to know when you are listening to a talk.  They have a great video which explains very well the concept behind spiritual living.

Hope that helps some of you understand where we try to live our lives from.

Some great coffee.

Yikes coffee is expensive up here.  Even the cheap crap is expensive too.  Whole Foods has this wonderful blend in full bean which we grabbed this week.  Although it will probably be our last experiment with premium coffee, **cough** $8 for 13oz **cough**, it was really good and deserved a little shout out.  I did the post work in Photoshop which I had to grab, begrudgingly, to finish Denise’s new website which will be launching soon.

Not bad for a cell phone shot…
