Nobody can believe it’s basically March already, right?
I certainly can’t. It feels like Christmas was just yesterday. Plus, not to be a jerk, but while most of the US battles to not freeze to death, I have been having a great winter. Seattle has been averaging in the mid-50’s for weeks, with far less rain than I would have expected. I even went kayaking last weekend and I got a tiny bit sunburned.
I know, don’t hate me.
Mike and I also skipped over to Maui for a truly blissful week of beautiful beaches, sunshine and good food. I’d never been to Hawaii before and really liked it, and with cheap direct flights from Seattle, I’m sure we’ll be back again. I’ll be writing up some of my favorite bits in the coming weeks.
What’s Next: Enjoying the Seattle life for most of March, then headed to Boston for the Women in Travel Summit, plus some quality time with my Mom.
