It's beautifully record-hot in Seattle this week. Today the temperature at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport hit 98 degrees at 5:30 p.m., surpassing the record of 95 degrees set in 1951, according to the National Weather Service.
Many are wilting, but I love it. Last night I walked up First Hill and Capitol Hill at 5:30 p.m.
I asked my husband if to meet me at Tango, where we first met seven years and nine days ago. We've been meaning to celebrate that anniversary there.
Unlike the night we met -- when our party of five ended up having to find another place that had a free table -- we were able to get seats. Cheers!
Then we headed up to Retrofit Home, where my friend Stephanie had an art opening. Her work looks amazing!
I'm really impressed.
Several pieces were red-dotted by the time we left last night, which made our subsequent trip to La Spiga feel especially celebratory.
Plus, it was just a gorgeous hot Seattle summer night.
