vashon island

When we were in Seattle last month, a main stop on my itinerary was Vashon Island to visit my dear friend Brenna and her family. They’d moved out to Vashon after we left Seattle, and I’d never otherwise made the trip, so Vashon was a total mystery to me. (Ok, “total” is probably an exaggeration, since I’d heard lots about it from Brenna and others, but I was still very excited to check it out.) Brenna’s daughter is the same age as Willa, and we were so happy they’d have a chance to play together for a couple days.

Vashon was beautiful. The island itself, and in particular my friends’ house, made me feel like life had slowed down. Everything felt calmer. Quieter. More relaxed. It was lovely. I was super excited to be back in the Pacific Northwest. So green! Moss! Trees and flowers of all types! Friends and fresh air are quite rejuvenating.
