travel planner: northwest 2010

i took
a little trip
home
to the northwest
for my birthday.

plane

it was a trip
to visit family
so i didn't
eat out or
visit friends.
just relaxed
with the family
and enjoyed
the company
of my
very cool
almost-4-year-old
nephew.

i had
dinner at
a
regular hang out
where
my brother joe
bartends
and
my brother johnny
did the sign out front.

i met up
with my dear pal
{west coast pony}
for dinner.

then drinks
at still liquor
& the living room.
very
uncomplicated.
. . . . .

i did make
a point
to go
with
my brother
and mother
to delancey.
i couldn't resist.

seattle_joe

it was an
{unusually}
sunny warm day.
we waited
outside
in their
make-shift
roped-off
area
enjoying wine
before dinner
in the
seattle sun.

was the

with
local porcini mushrooms.

Trips home are the best. And being able to call that part of the country "home" is awesome. You know where I get to call home? Illinois...yeeeesh.

Happy Birthday. :)

Sounds like a relaxing trip, I hope it made for a wonderful birthday!

Funny, I just walked past and enjoyed the sign outside of machiavelli the other day - now I like it even more knowing that it came from the bugheart clan. Yum, now you've got me thinking about making a return trip to Delancey...yum, worth the wait.

Hi there,

I check your blog every once and a while - I can't remember how I originally found you but I've always wanted to tell you how much I heart the sketches you do of what you are going to pack for each trip.

Happy summer,
Kirsty
