After spending winter in Sun Valley, Idaho, then a month off-grid in the Nisqually Valley, it was time to spend some time on a boat.  Only I wasn't quite ready to spend some time on a boat (because that meant unpacking, cleaning, and organizing).

So I roamed around Seattle, went out to lunch, then found myself walking into a day spa. I love days like these, where each decision is literally in the moment (that, and six months had passed since my hair had seen scissors, so it was time for a spring cleaning).

I may have fallen in love with those necklaces there, in the middle, on my way to a pedicure.

I was a terrible client. I couldn’t relax, not even with tea and calm music. Apparently, I'm not the only person in the world afraid to have tools near her toes.

But these bright orange tootsies were exactly what I needed (to start unpacking, cleaning, and organizing).
