S0 very sad that I did not take pictures on my vacay to Seattle to meet the family that I will soon call my own. Lugged the camera equip there and yet I forgot to bring the extra battery. Or even the charger. And my battery was dead. (A new one would have cost around $70). Well, there will be other trips. But this one was great regardless of the fact that I was sick most of the time. Joel's family is wonderful and showed me a fabulous Christmas. With gluten free foods and all. Even rolls thanks to my dear fianc minus the e.
Also it was very snowy in Seattle snowed straight through Christmas. And it was beautiful. The green variety of pines and abundance of bodies of water. I can't wait to return in perhaps a less frigid season to explore while not drugged. So many things that I wished to have caught on camera. Like Joel's adorable nieces and Pike Place market and Anna Ferris wandering around the airport looking dazed and confused searching for her luggage.
So thank you Mellor family for making me feel at home while away from my family for the holidays.
