Good to hear you all had a wonderful time together - thanks for the lovely pictures.

Love seeing her in motion, she's a fab girl, indeed! Take care and have a great flight home, Inge!

It is always hard to say goodbye. Glad that you had a blast with her.

Time goes too fast. Looks like a fun last day out. Safe trip home Inge!

Thank you for sharing - very special photos. So sad to hear Inge's time has come to go back, but it sounds like you had a fab time together.

So sad! Bye-bye Inge, it was so special to get to meet you. Thanks again for the chocolates!

These are great pictures, Angie and Greg. I'm glad you had such a wonderful time with Inge.

I'm sure it's hard to say goodbye but what a wonderful time you had - and thank you for sharing so much of it with us!

Aw, wonderful photos! I'm so sorry I couldn't get out there for the big meetup (or a mini one), but I'm so happy that you all had such a fantastic time. I can tell by the pictures. Safe travels, Inge! Next time, I hope to meet you in person!

So great that you had a month to spend together! Thanks for all the great photos.

Oooooh Angie, what wonderful pictures!! (I was very curious to see how they turned out:-). The Sculpture Park is marvelous, and an excellent location to practice photography.

Thank you so so much for these very sweet words. I adore you and Greg, my Seattle family__ You guys spoilt me rotten and made my trip truly magical.

Thanks everyone for all the fabulous comments. and safe travel wishes. Saying goodbye at the airport was very emotional. I'm missing Angie and Greg tremendously already, but at the same time I can't stop smiling when thinking about all those wonderful days we got to spend together. I am a lucky gal!

I arrived in Amsterdam this morning, and am back home, and online again. A little woozy from jetlag, in the middle of unpacking (LOVE my Seattle loot) and catching up on email.

Debbie - It was an absolute treat meeting you!

Dashielle - Indeed! And yes! Greg and I were taking pictures, when Angie suddenly exclaimed: “look at Mt Rainier!”. It was such a stunning view with the light illuminating the mountain in the dark sky.

Laura - I so hope we can make it happen asap (and fingers crossed that we get to meet than too!).

Michelle - It was beyond amazing that I got to spend an entire month with my dear friends. And yezzzz, we need to make this happen. (and so wonderful to see you on YLF again).

Carole - We were so so so lucky with the weather. And I couldn’t agree more. I shall treasure these memories forever.

Viva - I am still so thrilled that we were able to meet up too. What a wonderful morning it was!

Merwoman - *nodding*.

Tanya - I can’t wait to do it all over again, and hopefully you’ll be able to join us next time.

Oh Kari, thank you so much. Can’t wait to catch up with you next time (there will definitely be a next time;-)

Karie - I am already looking forward to that day.

Joy - You are so sweet, thank you (I also had to laugh about my expression in the fifth photo:-)

Sveta - (Hug you). And you bet!-)

Sharan - You are a sweetheart, thank you_

Shevia - Absolutely - I will forever cherish every second of my Big Seattle Adventure.

Bj1111 - We SO need to make that happen!

Neel - Exactly.

abc - Our next adventure can’t come soon enough;-)

Diana - I like the way you think;-)

DEB - We kept VERY bus for sure, ALL such wonderful experiences (it energizes you, if that makes sense).

Denise - I remember you mentioning the Park, and it piqued my interest even more (love the park, both sculptures and trees/plants!). It was brilliant that you got to meet your friend in Seattle. And I can truly say that I feel 100% the same way about the SSIF. It was a dream come true, and you are an amazing lady!

Diane - Right back at you, sweet lady. I count myself so lucky that I got to meet you, and still find it beyond fantastic that you flew out to Seattle especially for the SSIF.

Claire - My pleasure, and it was brilliant meeting you too.

Janet - I can’t wait to meet you too. Let’s try and make it happen asap;-)

The pleasure was ALL ours, sweet Sis Inge. Glad you're back safely and soundly. Always good to be back home - thinking about magical moments. You are soooo deserving of these kind words.

Hope we see the rest of your k-word worthy loot on the forum. SO FUN shopping together. It was long overdue. xo
