Project 52 - Week 9
On Mother's Day, we headed to the Farmer's Market and explored Ballard to our hearts content. We found art on the walls, had delicious treats and even flew a kite!

Molly came home from school on Monday with a paper cape and a flashy decorated mask. I asked her to pose for me as a Sassy Superhero.

Introduction
I am an obsessive knitter, writer, foodie, photographer and Mother who once upon a time worked in social media marketing and public relations. My love for blogging and local reporting drives my desire to write about the latest parenting hotspot, the best place to brunch, where to get the best workout and who has the best local yarn store.
