I recently relocated back to Seattle after several years away and am loving being back in the beautiful Pacific Northwest – rain or shine! I pride myself on being the best aunt I can be to my 9-year old nephew. I enjoy being out in nature by the water, reading a good book, or trying out a local pub or eatery with friends.
