rain, rain...come again

im a seattle girl.
and i love it.
i love seattle. i will always love seattle. the green trees, the gray skies, the wet air. i love the city and i love the easy, short trips to the country, the forest, and the desert.
i hear theres a heat wave going on...practically everywhere except washington. which is perfect for me. i have no qualms about not having a scorching summer. (and on behalf of my city i must say that we do, in fact, usually have a pretty nice, hot, sunny summer.) but this year has been an odd one...i can probably count the "summer" days on my fingers. and, altho, i do love a hot day to swim in a lake or where a slinky dress or ride my sea-doo, my absolute favorite season is fall. i love the "comfy weather" as i call it. i love the smell of rain and the dimly lit outdoors. i love breaking out my scarves and unfolding my fleece blanket. and i especially love sweaters. so in preparation for the season to come, i have spent some downtime browsing polyvore.
so, do tell - whats your favorite time of year?

former and present wanderlust.

in preparation for a year of obsessing over a transatlantic vacation, i have been going thru my old travel photos. my boy and i have been talking about planning a trip to europe at some point (nothing new, i talk about travel pretty much daily) and we have just decided to officially plan one. !
im SUPER excited! as you may know (from this, this, this, and this), i have quite a love for travel...an obsession, if you will. in fact, its really the only thing that i have deep intense feelings about...friends, family, and animals aside, of course. and i have been going thru awful withdrawals, as it has been three years since ive traveled outside of the country.
and, yes, i know that i have had an out of state travel one or two times a year...but its not the same. im not complaining...im just longing.
so, i plan to return to italy and france and show my boy all of my favorite spots and experience a vastness of new ones with him. so, in my excitement - i share with you my previous enjoyments in countries that in no way disappoint.
