August: The Month of Visits (Part I)

November 18, 2012

This past August was an awesome month and also a really busy month because starting with my friend Miriam (who technically visited in late July, but still!) and leading up to Labor day I had 6 friends or family who visited me in Seattle (5 of those stayed in my apartment). Thanks to the lovely excuse that visitors give to really get out and enjoy the city, I ended up doing more in August than the rest of the summer combined. And while it isn’t in chronological order, here are some of the photos from Ruth and Jess’s visit. Thanks for coming ladies, it was truly a blast!

Of course I like to take my guests to my local bookstore. Fortunately Ruth was totally game for looking at books.
