Thank You Jim Koch...

There are people who will always dream about doing what they love, but never do because it is safer to stay where they are, but not Jim Koch of Sam Adams. I don't think I have ever been so inspired by a commercial.

Labor Day Weekend '09

A few weeks ago my husband and I decided to jet off to Seattle for an extended Labor Day weekend. My Aunt Sheri lives out there and I haven't been to her place in over 10 years. I have seen her since then as she comes to Wisconsin a couple of times a year, but for some reason I just haven't made my way out there.
We had a great time and we will hopefully not wait as long for a return visit.


The majestic Snoqualmie Falls

Shaun & Sheri try on hats at the Bumbershoot Art Market

25 cents a dance - $1 for a good dance and $5 will get you the best dance ever

Sheri admires some outdoor ornaments


We took in some fun music
