I recently visited the sleepless city and was enamored by the rich culture, sights, and activities. There is so much to do, see and experience that I was surprised by how much we managed to cram in one day.
The day started off with a visit to the Chihuly Garden and Glass Exhibit at the Seattle Center. An incredible display of blown glass by famous artist Dale Chihuly was displayed throughout the Exhibition Hall and outside into the garden, creating the perfect blend of organic elements and artisan brilliance.
Next stop Seattle's most famous attraction, the Space Needle! It was a beautiful day, which allowed for an incredible view of the entire city from the Space Needle's observation deck!
It just wouldn't be a day in the city without a visit to Seattle's famous Pike's Place Fish Market to indulge in some of Seattle's finest seafood, baked goods, fresh flowers, and hand-crafted goods from local artisans!
We ended our day in Seattle by riding a 'Duck' - an amphibious landing craft
developed by the United States Army during
World War II.Ride the Ducks of Seattle is a fun way to tour the city and learn the history!
Warm sunny weather fills Lake Union with lots of water traffic; sail boats, kayaks, yachts, even hot tub boats! The sun was just starting to set as the tour came to a close lighting up the Seattle skyline, a picture perfect ending to a wonderful day spent in one of the Northwest's most amazing cities!

One tunic, three different looks – that’s value! The Bamboo Dreams® Uma Tunic can be worn with the cowl in a relaxed drape, pulled down over
the shoulders for a sleeker look, or pulled up over the head as a hood.
Any way you wear it, you will feel both lovely and relaxed in its
graceful lines and supple fabric. The Uma Tunic pairs perfectly with our new heavier-weight Nellie Leggings for a fall style that looks chic and feels like your favorite pajamas!
Mamma Mia! You’ll be amazed by the chic versatility of our Bamboo
Dreams® Mia Tunic. With its stylish boat neck, simple drape and
mid-thigh length, the Mia Tunic is an elegantly simple companion for our
Dreams® Full Length Leggings or your favorite blue jeans. In two
bellissimo solid colors, or try the favoloso Black/Slate Stripe – just
don’t be surprised to hear Ciao Bella as you walk down the street!
Whether strolling along the Champs Élysées, the grocery aisle or the
local art walk, you will feel confidently chic in our Camille Cowl Tunic. The Camille has a simple low cowl neck that is both easy and
elegant. The form-friendly drape is longer on the sides, creating a
smooth, flattering profile. Pairs elegantly with our Bamboo
Dreams® Leggings or Wide Leg Pants.
Luxury Silk Comforter – silk inside and out – the ultimate in softness. Sleep in a cloud – our Luxury Silk Filled Comforters are that light,
warm and dreamy! 100% pure silk inside and out, this comforter surrounds
you in a cocoon so sumptuous and enticing, you’ll never want to leave. And why should you? A long, deep, comforting sleep is what we need these
The Luxury Silk Comforter also makes a glorious gift for a
special occasion. Following ancient Chinese tradition, the Silk Filled Comforter is made layer by layer from hand-stretched silk floss.
Stitching holds the interior silk in place.
love to read so I always am asking people what books they have enjoyed
recently. It is a chance to be exposed
to lots of new authors and titles. I
posed the question to the Yala Team, and here are the responses:
now I’m reading The Zoo Where You’re Fed to God by Michael
Ventura. An amazing and unpredictable book, published in 1994. If you’re
looking for something recently released, next on my list is In One Person by John
Irving. During the spring I read The Fault in Our Stars by John Green which fits in the teen lit genre but offers something
for all ages. It’s an amazing story about three teenagers with cancer-
very honest, unflinching and sweet.
The Historian – written by American author
Elizabeth Kostova. The plot blends historical facts surrounding the Ottoman
Empire and Eastern Europe with the folklore of Vlad Ţepeş and his fictional
equivalent Count Dracula.
Along with lots of other books about babies (guess why!), I am currently reading Bringing Up Bebe by: Pamela Druckerman –this book offers insight and humor into French
I recommend People of the Book by
Geraldine Brooks - historical fiction showing the intermingling of religions
throughout 800 years as it follows one artifact back through time. For a good summer read - Castaways
and/or The Island by Elin Hilderbrand. Fun characters
that you would want to meet at a party or have as a neighbor.
Michael: Breaking Barriers, an autobiography
by journalist Carl T Rowan who grew up in poverty and became a nationally known
journalist. He shares eyewitness
accounts of all the major events in the civil rights movement.
I’m currently reading Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand
(non-fiction). I've also read this summer: Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn and Summerland
by Elin Hilderbrand. All three were great and I would recommend them to anyone!
from me, Nancy: I am telling everyone
about The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh which beautifully
tells the story of Victoria and how she communicates through flowers. It is a sad truthful story, which eventually
hope everyone has a chance for a leisurely afternoon by a pool, at the beach or
in the backyard with a book in hand.
