blue morning light

Hello from pike place market, Seattle! I flew out for just a few days to see my best friend, who is going to be my "man of honor" in my wedding this summer.

I woke up insanely early this morning craving a real latte, so I walked myself down to the market with my camera to get some coffee. The flower vendors were just setting up:



I know it's such an over-photographed, iconic sign, but it says "home" to me.

Pike Place market

The city is really beautiful before sunrise. I just meandered around taking lots of photos without really being awake.


I've been so homesick recently that it's good to come back even for just a short visit. It was great to see my friend and catch up and talk about wedding stuff and work. We both work for the same company, just on different coasts, so we had lots to go over and gossip about. On the wedding front, I've been lobbying for the boys to wear this sailboat patterened bow tie, but it's getting veto'd by him & my sailor so far. Apparently I need to work on being a bossy bride because I appear to have caved in and the current menswear on groom + the best man + my best friend will be tuxes with plain black bowties. ;)

I love Seattle, we lived in Puyallup for 2 years and fell in love. It looks like you had a nice trip, nice latte and nice visit.
I'm kind of liking the bowtie for the little boy, though. Perhap you could pinch out a bit of bit** and insist...
