It's as American as Apple Pie....

And who doesn't love apple pie? After returning from Spring Training in Peoria, AZ, our Seattle Mariners return to the Emerald City to kick off Opening Day on Thursday, March 29 at 7:10p with a game against the Cleveland Indians.  This opening game is all about superstar pitcher, Felix Hernandez, who will be the 7th pitcher to be in the Opening Line Up for his 10th consecutive time.

SPRING IS IN THE AIR

Isn't this photo simply gorgeous?! I was searching for the PERFECT photo to exemplify the gorgeous beauty that blooms every year from the amazing display of cherry trees that surround the Quad of the University of Washington when I happened across the profile of Karina_Kudinova on Instagram who was gracious enough to allow me to share this photo with you.  Although these coveted Cherry Blossoms hit their peak bloom last weekend, it's not too late to catch some of this jaw-dropping beauty.

For me, this is always a sign that spring is in the air, this gorgeous transformation will certainly make your heart happy and present the perfect photo opportunity. If you've never been I encourage you to stop by.... any Seattleite will

1) We’re in for Another La Niña Year. BLAME THE TRADE WINDS. THEY’RE WHY THE NORTHWEST IS IN FOR another cold, snowy La Niña winter.  Of course, for those of us who live to hit the slopes, hunker down by the fire, and model hats with earflaps, that sounds a little different: another cold, snowy winter!  Read More 

2) We Have Canadian Comfort Food. FILLING, FATTY, AND DRIPPING with cheese, poutine is the ultimate winter comfort food splurge.
