I woke up the next morning, more tired than when I went to bed, packed up my backpack and drove back to Seattle. I went to my hair appointment, caught up with my hair stylist and waited for my hair to turn blue again. After getting my hair all done, I walked out to meet a couple of my friends for lunch at Joeys Kitchen. If you ever get a chance to go to Joeys Kitchen at UVillage, I highly recommend it. It’s actually where they test out new recipes to see how they do before introducing them into their regular menu.
Catching up with my girlfriends makes me so happy. Mainly because you know it’s a true sign of friendship when you can sit down with them and pick up right where you left off. There’s no awkwardness, there’s no need to try and get comfortable again. It is just automatically comfortable and I hope that never fades. After lunch, some shopping like old times we went our separate ways and I went to pick up a friend before my second wedding of the weekend.
Remember when I went to Asia for a wedding? Well the couple did their American reception which was great because it was wonderful to see them surrounded by even more people who loved them. We went out to the Ballard Bay Club for the celebration which included a view of Elliot Bay, the mountains and a wonderful sunset. This event was literally a giant reunion for me which was great. Hugs all around followed by conversations of catching up on everyone’s life. There’s nothing better than being surrounded by people you love and just experiencing things together.
After that, my weekend of fun was over. I woke up the next morning, worked from Seattle and then did a quick lunch date at Cedars for some good paneer tikka masala with two friends who had just moved back to Seattle before I made my way back to the airport. I dropped off the car, jumped on the shuttle and said goodbye to Seattle again.
