december is for thankfulness??

i wanted to do one last thankfulness post but wasn't able to find time at the end of november, so here it is for you in december:)

i am thankful for seattle, for all our friends and the time we spent there.

i am thankful for the time i spent in seattle. it was the summer after my 18th birthday and my first time living on my own. aaron and i dated, got married and spent the first 3 years of our marriage in seattle/capitol hill. this place will always have a special place in our hearts.
while there we helped out at church of the undignified. our friends there are gems and the things we learned at that church were life changing. i am so thankful to have had that season in our lives. it really shaped our beliefs and stretched our faith. it was a crazy time; full of fun, scraping buy, exciting things, great worship and healing. i would not be who i am today if it were not for that church and community of friends we had there.

This is Anna Miller and me, (at her birthday party i believe).  this was the year we moved to yakima.
this is victrola coffee, where aaron worked for awhile. almost every apartment we lived in was walking distance to here. we were there alot. especially when he worked there, cuz we got free coffee.
this is at my bestie's wedding, she's the one in the wedding dress ;)
this was our first apartment we shared after we got married. we were in the basement back corner of the building. all our windows had a brick wall about 4 feet out from them, and it was cold! but cheap and perfect for us.
Aaron and i in Saul's apartment, just down the hall from Aaron's first apartment. we were engaged at the time.
