A Rainy and Cold Spring in the Pacific Northwest

This spring has been incredibly rainy and astonishingly cold compared to Springtime in Atlanta or even here last spring. We’ve had mornings in the high 30’s in May!

This is my final post in this series. Below are more old photos from my vintage Instagram account now long since deleted. This was the table top in the diner in which we ate in Fargo, North Dakota.

Below are more old photos from my vintage Instagram account now long since deleted. A [very expensive] hat shop near Union Square, if I recall correctly. The hats were all handmade and gorgeous! An Instagram selfie! An early fisheye lens, that attached to the iPhone magnetically, of our home in Manhattan Beach. This art installation of a beach lifeguard station… Continue reading
