Three years ago today

Three years ago today: my graduation from KU, and the day Jason asked me to marry him (though I didn't know it yet at the time of this picture).

Happy engagement-versary, Jas!

Burnt cookies

I made orange chocolate-chip cookies this morning. They looked pretty before I put them in the oven.But then I burnt them. Apparently the oven in our new house runs hot. At least it wasn't as bad as the time I put easymac noodles in the microwave without water. I've been trying to dig up the pictures of that, but so far no luck.

From the Pioneer Square bus tunnel stairs

A quote going up the stairs out of the bus tunnel:
"My attention was thus turned to the Sound, and I formed the purpose of looking in that direction." -Arthur Denny, early Seattle founder/settler
