Yes... I escaped! It was a glorious four day Seattle excursion. I had an amazing time, saw people I love, spent a day in a museum, tried new foods, met new people... it was good... but I am feeling rather quiet, perhaps just tired, so I am afraid the real blogging will be coming soon. Sorry Mom and Dad, I'll call or blog soon-ish. Jacquie says I'm a bad daughter for not calling to let you know my plane didn't crash into the ocean, so yea maybe so. All is well, I took a surprising amount of photos... please stand by.
