Running from Sandy

Kelly, Anne and I at Tryst; our first apartment!

I'm back in Seattle after a short but wonderful weekend in Washington DC. I made it out by the skin of my teeth Sunday night just as Hurricane Sandy was swooping in. Huge shout out to Southwest Airlines for somehow getting me on standby at the last minute and on a flight out of a completely different airport at that. It was a stressful experience getting home but I'm SO grateful to be safe in Seattle and not stuck on the other side of the country with no power.
Isn't Erica's dog Gavroche ADORABLE?!

The time that I did get to spend in DC was wonderful. I hadn't been back there since Patrick and I moved away nearly three years ago. We spent our early days as a couple there, my first real job was in DC, and our first apartment was an adorable little one bedroom in the Columbia Heights neighborhood. Needless to say, the city is full of fond memories and it was great to reminisce and catch up with old friends. I'm so grateful for those three years of my life and will always have a soft spot in my heart for the District of Columbia. Thinking of  my friends and you lovely blog readers living in Sandy's path. Be safe out there!


  1. I live outside of DC in Virginia; so glad you made it out before the storm, I remember watching the news Sunday night and allllll these people were stuck at the airport. We've managed to survive and didn't lose power, and looks like the worst of it has passed!
