About to head home! We had a fun trip that felt like a total time warp whirlwind, and I’m glad we came. This trip was not really tourism-focused but it was fun to explore parts of Seattle nevertheless! We ate some great pho, went to the original Nordstrom, and yes — I did purchase a Patagonia jacket though I actually went with the “down sweater” because I wanted more warmth than the nano puff. Hopefully I won’t regret it!
We had a lovely time at the bar mitzvah festivities and Josh got to spend a good amount of time with his friend which was great. We did a 2023 planning session (yay!) and Josh and I recorded a podcast episode together, so hopefully that will turn out well (will be out a week from tomorrow).

Back to Reality
Re-entry is going to be a bit rough because tomorrow is Halloween AND I have a full patient day. On the plus side I think I’m tired enough that the switch back to Eastern time won’t be too bad? Maybe?
The kids have no school November 1 which was quite strategic of the school.
Glad you had fun! Jacket looks and sounds great. I have a down vest I adore, have had it for a decade and it still looks new.
Excited that Josh will be a guest on BLP! Looking forward to hearing his perspective.
I really like the color! Unfortunately, Patagonia doesn’t seem to fit me well, so I’ll have to admire from afar.
Glad you enjoyed Alaska Airlines. It’s also my favorite airline.
love workout recap.i’ll start doing it too. you look so strong in that gym pic! love it!
post vacation getting back to reality is always hard…. hope you get a smooth one.
