Peonies and Graduates

Anna graduated from High School, making my parents officially old-silver lining is that there won't by piles of shoes and homework in every room of the house ;) I, on the other hand, will probably start to miss the messy kitchen and missing clothes because that means Anna's around. She left today and I miss her already, but I'm so excited for her because she is going to rock college! We celebrated her graduation at Hot Cakes (If you go, you have to get the Salted Caramel's one of my top favorite desserts of all time). 

Ryan has been gone for two weeks now- on a road trip around the country traveling with two Irish guys working for a Diabetes convention. Time was going by fast, until today. Now I don't know how I'll get through the next few weeks! I miss that boy! But, I went to Pike Place by myself and ate all the mini donuts I wanted - eight to be exact- without someone whispering in my ear about the consequences of eating pure fat hahaha. You can come back now, Ryan! 

It's peony season at Pikes, my favorite time of the year. Seattle, you make me proud in the Summer. Except tonight, when it hailed...what?
