Best Moments Of 2015

  • Getting a home of our own (and the unpacking of boxes and decorating that is still happening).

  • Spending our anniversary at the Manresa Castle in Port Townsend, WA, eating curry over and over, and shopping for books and treasures.

  • 25 days of Christmas ending in a brand new camera and so many other special gifts!

  • Town lighting in Leavenworth, WA.

  • Beatles laser light show!

  • Vancouver trip with Sub Pop (Grouse Mountain, Santa, a scary gondola trip in the wind and rain, and the view of Vancouver from above, the most amazing bathtub and cozy hotel, seeing our sweet friends, Rose and Jon, Bloedel Floral Conservatory in Queen Elizabeth Park, Bandidas Taqueria, sushi and ramen, The Templeton and Movieland arcade, pretty bookstores).

  • Monument Valley vacation with my parents where we took a million pictures at sunrise and sunset (and a jumping photo of my parents!), shopped for turquoise jewelry, and ate Navajo tacos. Visiting Hole N" the Rock again, and the feeding zoo for the first time. WELL WORTH $4.

  • The holidays in Colorado with my family.

  • Starting a new job at Sub Pop (and still keeping one of the old ones!). Also, seeing the Space Needle and Puget Sound everyday.

  • Multiple birthday trips to Portland (The Grotto, treats at Back to Eden, and the DELICIOUS burrito place down the street, green tea strawberry boba, staying at the Kennedy School, photo booths, and vegan soft serve), and GARTH BROOKS live!

  • Day trips to Olympia (and rediscovering our love of Old School Pizzeria's vegan pie + Magic kombucha).

  • Having yard sales/vending at VHS swaps and community-wide sales + going to estate sales.

  • Fireworks over water in multiple towns across the state.

  • Kayaking during our mid-year meeting.

  • Being rewarded with a magical day swimming at Lake Cushman after spending hours in traffic in the car.

  • Discovering the closest Seattle beach to our house (and going a whole bunch)!

  • Getting a pretty jackalope tattoo from Shannon Perry, and her gifting me a jackalope to take home as well!

  • A few days in St. Louis (the Arch, a riverboat, Imo's, so many treasures at the Belleville Flea Market in Illinois, World's Fair exhibit at the History Museum, Eugene Field House, and the Pink Elephant Antique Mall, and sweet family).

  • Bryan White (multiple shows!) and Weird Al at the Washington State Fair in Puyallup.

  • Finally seeing The Sonics (with amazing guests)!

  • Stan Lee at Comic-Con.

  • Phosphorescents, jellyfish, crabs, and sea slugs in the the Puget Sound (my favorite!)

  • Seeing my best friends in Denver, CO (if only for a few hours), and my entire family in Grand Junction, CO (if only for a few hours as well). Lots of time with my parents and bowling with my extended family.

  • Meeting new friends (and house guests), and reconnecting with a few old ones.

  • Finding a billion VHS tapes and growing our taxidermy and World's Fair collections this year with Eric Williger.

  • Getting a movie pass and going to more movies than ever before (even if we chose the silly ones).
