Wedding/Anniversary weekend in the Northwest

We love this city!
John and new nephew Micah Dirkse
My crazy hat that John picked out for me. I LOVE it.
Here I am with the love of my life. Can anyone say Mr. GQ?
Dirkse siblings: John, Jenni, Julie, and Jason
Driving over Stephen's pass was breathtaking. Here is a shot of Mt. Index that I got on the way.
Of course we had to see the original Starbucks...






So, John and I just got back from the Northwest. We went to Washington to be part of John's little sister's wedding. Julie got married in Leavenworth and John got to officiate which was an honor. It also happened to be the same week as our 15th wedding anniversary so we celebrated by heading West together. We had an absolute blast in Seattle. Walking up and down the market was one of our highlights. The fresh flowers were unbelievable! I even took home a little Seattle in the form of a hat made by a local artist. Love that! Julie's and David's wedding was beautiful and it was a fun time to reconnect with the family.

John and Bets, It's great to see you both after 15 years of wedded bliss. Bets, you look amazing! I look forward to keeping up with your family, all the way from Albania, via your photo blog (and interesting comments). I like the hat too. It's a true commentary on you - fun, spunky, versatile, practical, and full of color. Love, Chelle Stire

I can say "Mr. GQ", can anyone else? But can you say, "Wah-kuh, wah-kuh" to Bets in the funky dress?

Love the blog. Thanks for doing this. I need to get the visual update.
