With so much travel and so many visitors in town, we haven’t been eating as well as we’d like. Plus, it’s been hot so spending a lot of time cooking doesn’t sound like a good time. That’s why we recently challenged ourselves to add some light, summery entrees to our repertoire. Read more
There was only a huge tree and several feet between the two of us and Eric Herzberg’s mother. We were curious about what she was doing but wanted to remain respectful, so we kept to the walkway and didn’t let on that we were watching and feeling her pain.
For several minutes, we successfully fought the unrelenting urge to run up and console her – to tell her how shitty we still feel about what happened. Unable to trust our willpower any longer, we resolved to walk away.

We’re in shock. For a lotta reasons.
First off, it looks like we’re going to have the opportunity to get married here in Washington State. This sort of news came once before, when we lived down in Oregon, without a stellar end result. It was ruled unlawful. Read more
Hi. We’re Kent and Caanan, and we are Seattle tourism failures. The first step is admitting the truth, and we feel so much better.
