I made a goal at the beginning of the year to make it to Seattle this year. I have always wanted to go and this year I felt drawn to it. Well, I used five of my vacation days in May to go to Hawaii with my BFF and then a considerable amount more during the rest of the summer to attend to some family matters. I really had accepted that it wasn’t going to happen this year. I just kept repeating “it’s not a 2016 goal”. But, when I realized I had TWO vacations days left and a BFF who wanted to visit Seattle just as much as I did, we booked a planet ticket. We left on a Thursday after work, had 3 full days and flew back on a Monday. What a perfect 72 hours in Seattle.
