In other news, I was thrilled to find out at work today that my name has been published into a book on Atlanta architecture! It's on page 202 of City by Design - an architectural perspective of atlanta! I am listed as part of the architecture team on the World of Coca-Cola, and a beautiful photo of it is on the cover, too! I am very happy for my firm and the team, as they deserved some credit after all of our hard work on this building: http://www.panache.com/CBD/cbd_atlanta.html.
And then the news of our dear former Tech baseball player, Mark Teixeira, getting traded to the Anaheim was sad news, but I hope that he does well with the Angels. I'll miss getting to see him at the Braves games, as he was my current favorite. :(

We spent a fabulous week in Seattle! The weather was perfect and cool for the most part - a very enjoyable break from the Atlanta heat. We got to see a lot of sights, and of course enjoyed the family reunion aspect and my cousin's wedding! For more photos, click on me and DH above. We stayed in a rented house just north of the University of Washington campus, known as the University, or U-District. We were able to walk around their beautiful campus several times and enjoy the neighborhood farmer's market on Saturday morning. Some of the sights we got to visit include: Seattle Center, the Space Needle (didn't go up), Snoqualmie Falls, North Bend (home of where Twin Peaks was filmed), Everett Boeing Plant, Experience Music Project/Sci-Fi Museum, Olympic Sculpture Park, Bellevue Botanical Garden, Seattle Public Library, The Chapel of St. Ignatius (outside only), The Edgewater Hotel (where my cousin's wedding was held), just to name a few spots. We did a great walking tour on Friday evening with a private tour guide that one of my cousins arranged - that was great too. I really enjoyed spending time with cousins on my Mom's side - all 8 of us were able to make it this time. And on top of all that, we managed to look up one of our GT classmates and have dinner with him and his wife. They joined us on the walking tour too and learned a few things about Seattle that they didn't know. Anyway, now back in the heat of the Atlanta summer and wishing I was back in 70-degree weather...
