The firework show at the Space Needle on New Year’s Eve is a sight not to be missed. I was fortunate enough to get front row seats on the rooftop of a friend’s place that overlooks Kerry Park. The best part of the fireworks show at the Space Needle is watching Seattle’s most iconic landmark look so beautiful at night with all the pops of color.
2015 was a good year. I was cancer-free! To me the concept of New Year’s Eve means reflecting and celebrating the previous year, being thankful for what you have and a time to think about all the lessons learned. So today I wanted to share with you my “30 lessons learned in 2015”. Some were funny and some were hard but nonetheless they are experiences I will carry into the new year.

Let’s do this 2016!
My amazing 4th of July weekend consisted of…a beautiful beach house, fishing, BBQ, fireworks, drinking games, sun bathing, and a dirty 30 birthday celebration. I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect weekend of total relaxation and laughing our butts off!!
Before heading back home, we stop at Freeland Café for a delicious “hawaiian-style” breakfast!
Hope you all had a safe and wonderful 4th of July celebration!
Special thanks to the Cartwright family!
