This past weekend we journeyed up to Vancouver, a 3 hour drive from Seattle to take it easy. It was as much about getting away from work, chores, and the everyday, as it was about a change of scenery. And yes, Seattle and Vancouver do look and feel similar, they are like fraternal twins. Similar attributes; waterfronts, hipsters, tons of bikes (perhaps I should have left it at hipsters), and good coffee, but they are still quite unique, Seattle with its grunge and hills cascading to the waterfront. And Vancouver with modern skycraping-condos and flat (woohoo!) sprawling downtown. Not so much about what we saw but more about what we didn't see... the usual.

Shopping on Saturday... I think I love this chair, and I KNOW I love the color pallet
