Friday Things and Running Playlist

It's that time of year again: time for grandma (my husband's mom) to visit!

Garden D'Light's at the Bellevue Botanical Gardens.  I love that we have traditions that involve Grandma, which for most families is a given...

 Yep, my kids see her once a year.  One day we'll hopefully all be able to afford more visits, but it's hard.  And my mom hasn't seen the kids in over a year and a half.  Mostly due to dealing with effing cancer, she's had to cancel her last few visits.  Moving to Seattle was one of the best things that has ever happened to us.  If given the opportunity to do it all again, we wouldn't hesitate.  As much as I talk about Chicago, and it will always be the city of my heart, we will most likely stay here for a long, long time.  When it comes to family, it's hard.  My brother lives in Minnesota and I haven't seen him in over three years.  Thinking that through and writing that down, man, that just made me feel queasy.  During the holiday season, if you're immersed in any local family drama, maybe take a moment to be thankful that they are near and hug them close.  OK, I'm off to enjoy some more quality time with grandma and the kids!

Worthwhile internet finds this week:
For your listening enjoyment: Strangers by Seven Lions is goin' on the playlist.

Happy weekend!
