Love Letter To Amsterdam – December 17


My Dearest Amsterdam,

I love you for your holiday spunk.

Love Letters To Amsterdam


Thank you for tempting me into a spontaneous “Brunch” of Pancake Puffs from a food vendor and Glühwein in a dimly lit chalet with Adam Levine rocking the sound system at Rembrandtplein Market.

Uhm…can we talk about that SLAB of butter???


If I showed you my flaws

If I couldn’t be strong

Tell me honestly

Would you still love me the same?


Love Letters To Amsterdam

Self Talk:  Glühwein….This can be considered brunch…it’s no different than a Mimosa or Bloody Mary. Cheers!


Yes, Amsterdam (and Adam), I would still love you the same! Of course I would! Love is unconditional.


Love Always,


PS… I had a slab of butter and mulled wine for breakfast on a Thursday…Do you still love me the same?

Adventure Amsterdam – Love Letter To Amsterdam


Love Letter To Amsterdam

I love Amsterdam.

From the first visit I was smitten. My soul had a crush that grew into a full on love affair over the years and visits.

In September I declared “I want to spend October in Amsterdam.” A month to romance fully with my soul city. October wasn’t meant to be…BUT, December/January is!

Holidays in Europe.

Patience, flow and determination — CHECK

Snoqualmie Valley with Bruiser

This week we head out to Snoqualmie Valley with Bruiser where I did some dog-sitting and suburbia exploring. I’m VERY behind in my adventure writing…

I’ve been TOO busy ADVENTURING!!!

Let’s see if we can catch up. I headed out to Snoqualmie Valley to hang out with my buddy Bruiser for the week and explore the suburbia side of life in the Greater Seattle area. A bit of a stretch for me because I’m not a suburbs kinda girl.

I AM however a dog kinda girl! And, Bruiser is a girl (with a camera) kinda dog. MATCH!!

Semiahmoo Resort

Semiahmoo Resort + Me + Mom

Once a year my mom comes to visit me which helped with #Adventure52 – Me + Mom + Semiahmoo Resort. Mom’s visits are always awesome!  Just me….mom…and ALWAYS an adventure!  Last year it was Orcas Island. This year, it was Semiahmoo Resort in Blaine, WA. I’d visited in the Spring and when I described the views, the water, the rock-filled beach, and the SPA to my mom she was SOLD.

Adventure Stop 1: Bow-Edison and Scenic Chuckanut Drive

Brunch at Tweets in Bow-Edison. I unexpectedly found this adorable street of food and shopping while trying to get a closer look at a bison farm (I never got that). BUT, the Edison “board walk” was a more than suitable bison substitute and I couldn’t wait to show mom around.
