A Different Kind Of Friday ~ Seattle Snapshots

I hope y’all had a fabulous Thanksgiving! The husband and I had a quiet and relaxing holiday weekend that consisted of eating so much food, watching the Seattle Macy’s Day parade in the rain, listening to the chants of protesters across the city, and catching a showing of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1.
