A colleague of mine in St. George told me once with a shaking of his head and a smile, "Em, when you and your family do something, you are all in....." Yes, We are and why I have never tried a cigarette or cocaine......I joke at quilt shops that my quilting addiction is more expensive than heroin but much more pro-social...and how often the fellow shoppers and cashiers will laugh and nod in agreement. And so my love affair with Seattle has followed suit!
We moved to Seattle because I was choosing to leave a career behind that demanded my attention 24/7 and because I longed to be a mom I had never been to my child, available. And how quickly my career here in Seattle began to take its hold on my heart and life. Excitingly, today I met with my supervisor and the chief nurse and have decreased my hours and will have clumps of time off. YEP!!!!! I had to make a stand so that I could attend Rebels and play with my family.
Hope you enjoy my current works in progress and my pics of Seattle from the past couple of days. A city of color, life and my heart is here! Enjoy and thank you for visiting my blog.
LOVE, A Few of My Favorite Things quilt with ideas for borders and framing triangles and the peace of the Japanese Garden where I read near a small waterfall and Noah's graduation dinner last night from his advanced French cooking class at Blue Ribbon Culinary School. What is a current LOVE of your life?
LOVE the comments you leave me, they are love on my hip when they come through and I thank you!
