May 21, 2010Seattle, Washington To be honest, both of us were not terribly excited to visit Seattle. We don’t know anyone that lives there, tourist traps like the Space Needle seem kind of boring and, quite frankly, we didn’t want to leave the beach. It was a welcome surprise to realize how much we enjoyed [...]

While driving from Sunnyvale to Livermore I couldn’t help but feel like I had just been a visitor for five years. Our time here seemed so fleeting and short-lived. At the same time it felt like leaving home, [...]
