Seattle Skyline

7:54 AM

Last week I had the amazing opportunity to visit Seattle with some of my friends. It was a wonderful week and I fell in love with the city. We stayed on Bainbridge Island, but we'd ferry across the channel to Seattle and spend our days strolling through farmers markets and shops and cafes and it was downright dreamy. I loved this trip in a way that felt slightly different than most of my vacations, as if I could belong in Seattle one day. I confess I don't think I'm really meant to be a southern California girl. I'm meant to live where the sky is cloudy and people wear Northface and hills are green and it's okay to not have giant sunglasses. I guess it makes sense that, even in SoCal, I've retreated to the mountains...

So anyway, I spent this weekend in Ventura with my family for Easter. The landscape is quite different from Seattle, with nothing but hills, ocean, and palm trees on the horizon. The skyline near my parents' house is littered with hundreds of palm trees. And this weekend I found myself consistently thinking that palm trees were the space needle, out of the corner of my eye. Habit, I guess...from this past week where it was always watching over me in the distance. As we trounced around Seattle, I liked that we could almost always spot the space needle on the horizon, and I suppose I keep hoping I can spot it. It's like a part of me still wishes I was in Seattle, and if you look for something hard enough...those palm trees start looking more and more like the space needle.
