Happy Valentine's Day!

Last year, Valentine's Day pretty much sucked for me. Ah, what a difference a year makes!  Really, what a difference just a month, a week, a day, an instant can make.  From the pain and suffering of one event - or two - or three - can arise something beautiful, amazing and completely unexpected.

Although Vicki is back in VA, we arranged to meet in Seattle for a romantic Valentine's get-away.  We had thought about meeting half-way, but by the time I travel east, we would lose too much time, so Seattle it was! We got an amazing price thanks to Priceline - and ended up on the 34th floor of The Westin.  Here is part of the view...we could also see the water, but the bright sun made the picture not turn out very good.

Maybe if I would have thought to buy iphone instead of a Blackberry, the picture would have been better!  We lazied away all of Saturday - eating, sleeping, browsing at the Pike Place Market - and ended up at Hard Rock Cafe for dinner. (I had a nachos craving and had the best nachos ever at the Hard Rock in Atlantic City.)  It was a wonderful weekend and I am so grateful that we have both the means and the desire to do such crazy things. 

On a sad note, Boy Wonder ended up sick with a fever, stuffiness and sore throat.  I got numerous updates and checked in on him regularly. By Sunday morning, I was not feeling very good either...and still am not...but don't seem to be going downhill.  Casey and I are both desperately hoping this is what we all had last week, and not another round for us all to experience. Ugh.

Anyway, to those who have a special person to share this day with, and those who do not - Happy Valentine's Day!

Glad to hear you had such a great weekend. I did as well and had no idea that Colby, KS could be such a romantic place. :)
