When Emily told me they were going to live on Vashon Island for the summer, my heart sank. Everything inside of me screamed ” That’s a whole ferry ride away!”. After composing myself, I realized that I better start behaving like the Washingtonian that I am. If my blood ran pure, my heart would have sang “Ferry ride! I live for ferries!” (please read the last half of that sentence in context only).
I was free last Monday, and took the advantage to go and see my good friend. And even if it was just seeing her and her awesome son Ethan, it would have been worth it. She had more planned for us though, and she took me to the very first Seattle’s Best Coffee house.
The bright sun made it hard to adjust to the coffee house’s light. Blinking slowly, the room came into focus. I looked around and realized I was surround by coffee roasters, general store items, and, hold your breath…orange and lavender mochas! Emily leaned over and said that lavender was an island favorite. We decided then and there that we would need to go to the island’s lavender farms.
Lavender fields have the enchantment of intoxicating fragrance. We decided to not let it go to waste and quickly took a few pictures. I know you will all agree when I tell you that my friend Emily is one hot mama! Thanks for such a beautiful day Emma, you are wonderful!
I love chair.

My orange mocha…
And there’s no better way to end than a crazy face from Ethan. He’s a hoot!
