It’s cool to live in Seattle.

One of the reasons it’s cool to live in Seattle is the big Troll that lives under the Aurora Bridge.  This troll is actually right under the bridge and is visited often by people in town.  It is said that he watches over Seattle but then some think he causes havoc.  Here is a little official description of the troll:  The Fremont troll has been lurking under the north end of the Aurora bridge since 1990. He was sculpted by four Seattle area artists — Steve Badanes, Will Martin, Donna Walter and Ross Whitehead. 

If you look really close the troll has a hold of a VW bug in it’s left hand and the hubcap from the VW bug is in it’s left eye.  That’s why it’s cool to live in Seattle.

Why is it cool to live in your town?

Why do the good ones always leave?

We’ve got the best neighbors.  Great people to hang with.  Great kids.  We really like hanging out with them.  Today they told us that they might (probably likely) be moving to Boston.  Why do the good ones always leave?

Of course we’re very supportive and want the best for them…we just like living around really cool people.  I’m sure that whatever God has planed for them….they will do.  Blessings to Evan & Sarah.  We’ll be praying for you as you consider this potential move.

Why is it the good ones that leave?

Starbucks at Target

I have a dream that one day I’ll be able to go into Targe with my wife and slip into a fully equipped Starbucks and drink the perfect drink while my wife shops.  Then, once she’s done…I simply pick up my perfect drink and walk to the car with my wife.  I have a dream!  Today I realized that this is not just a dream but yet a reality.  We walked into Target…Brenda shopped…I drank the perfect cup.  It’s a good day.


The Perfect Cup.  “americano with cream”

Where is your favorite “non-starbucks” Starbucks and what is your perfect cup?

Why I Love The Northwest

Mountain Ranier

Mountain Ranier on a beautiful northwest day.

OK, I moved here from Altanta 18 months ago because God tapped me on the shoulder and said it’s time to go back to the Northwest.  Yea, it rains here quite a bit.  Yea, we just had 3 inches of snow in our yard 5 days ago (that is really odd).  Yea, we will have about 2-3 months of sun this year.  But when the sun does come out….God’s beauty is shown in a way that can’t compare anywhere.  This picture of Mt. Ranier is not from my bedroom window…but is right by my house.  This is what I look at as I drive home every day.  When you look at something like Mt. Ranier….you have to just be in awe of God.

What do you love about where you live?
