Seattle, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways.

The combination of business trips, sun, and an ever snuggly Oliver Beckley is making Seattle the place to be. The photos below tell all.

Pitstop in AZ



As my Bunkie so astutely pointed out, “When most people think of flying from Seattle to Denver, Arizona isn’t on the way.” Well when I’ve got my middle school bff Colleen in Flagstaff and my grandparents in Phoenix, it’s pretty obvious that finagling a strange stopover in AZ is in order.

This is the photo of the night when Colleen and I hit every bar in Flagstaff. Ok, maybe not every bar. But, the important ones like this place which featured shelves and shelves of books covered by flat screen TVs. Stay classy Flagstaff.

One of these things is not like the other



Coordinating medical equipment donations between US donation organizations and a Mexican rural healthcare program is pretty glamorous. Here I am in the Project CURE warehouse in Denver with customs agents Alejandro, Manuel, and Gilberto. Yay team work!

4D Bloging



My trip to Atlanta, much like this photo, was a bit of a blur. I blame it on the 64 different flavored Coca-Cola soft drinks we sampled at Coca-Cola World. Here Nina, Alex, baby Nati, and I are pictured before heading into a 4D propaganda piece… I mean video about Coca-Cola products.

Golden Gardens



Seattle is a divided city. On nice days some will go to Golden Gardens and others will go to Greenlake. I dabble in both. Pictured are my Core Groupers in good form and the scene from a quality bike ride / cooking soup on the beach date.
