Last Saturday was my 22nd birthday! I took the weekend off and it was so nice to relax for a second, even though it literally felt like it only lasted a second. My mom and I met up that morning and went to Pike Place Market to pick up some yummy cheese, fresh veggies and salmon for dinner that night. I lucked out on having beautiful weather that day despite it being groggy and rainy the last couple of days. Later we went for a massage and then came back to the house and sat out on the deck nibbling on cheese before dinner. I ended my birthday by sitting out on the deck all night, talking with friends. I couldn't have asked for more. Better yet I spent that Sunday moving into my new apartment in a cute, little neighborhood here in Seattle called Queen Anne. My friend Stacie and I got a two bedroom apartment and now share it with three cats. Were still working on fully settling in (i.e. living room furniture & decorating). But I'll be gradually posting photo's as we move in!

my parents surprised me with a little gift when I came home
