Celebrating Earth Day

In honor of Earth Day we headed out to LaConner and the tulip fields. First stop was Snow Goose Produce for some refreshment and a look at their wonderful offerings including produce, fish, plants, TULIPS and wonderful ice cream! Next on the agenda was Christisnson’s Nursery, a delightful stop where we found “Art in the Schoolhouse” and ‘found art’ throughout the nursery and gift shop. The adventure would not be complete without a stop at Roozengaarde for a walk thru the tulip fields! We had  a little bit of sun, a little bit of rain, and a little bit of mud but it was well worth the trip. Not to mention the Kiwanis Salmon Bake. Yum!

Here’s some favorite pics…enjoy!

History is Happening Now!

 

That’s the theme for this year’s Champagne Gala Brunch at Salty’s on Alki benefitting the Southwest Seattle Historical Society. This important group promotes local heritage. What could be more important than saving the Old Homestead? Or the Admiral Theater? The Log House Museum is a West Seattle gem!

Great food and enchanting auction items where followed by Connie Thompson’s live interview with Paul Dorpat and Jean Sherrard authors of “Seattle Now & Then: The Historic Hundred”.

I am honored to capture this event year after year and look forward to the next!

Fall Festival is for family

Over 100 families stopped by to have their annual (or maybe first!) fall photo during the Fauntleroy Fall Festival.  We spent time debating how many years I’ve been doing this and figure it’s been at least 14 years! It’s been a pleasure watching our community grow. I met up with some of my high school seniors, bridal couples and of course so many young families. Here’s a sampling….

A Grand Affair

The West Seattle Food Bank held it’s annual “Grand Affair” Cocktail Benefit at the Sanctuary at Admiral.  Guests arrived in zoot suits and flapper outfits to the Roaring 20’s theme party where they could try their luck in the casino, partake of delicious appetizers, themed cocktails and of course bid on items in silent & live auctions.

Community friends were invited to celebrate the Food Bank’s astounding accomplishments in helping area families. Last year they distributed over 1.8 million pounds of food to local families and individuals.

Thank you, West Seattle Food Bank, for all you do!
