Don’t get me wrong, I love airport rides in town cars and taking limos to parties, but I also love public transportation. Before I left for my trip, I researched what was the best way for me to get into town. I decided to take the $2.50 Link. It was so worth the pocket change. Not only did I get to see different parts of Seattle, I also got to see the Sports Stadiums and the The Rainer Beer Factory, which is now an arts community. The ride was about 45 min to my destination, air conditioned and pleasant.
My first stop was to The Elliott Baby Book Company. They are a famous Seattle independent book seller that has been in business since 1972.
Next stop was for lunch with the amazingly talented writer Jennifer Worick!
I was lucky to snag a copy of Jennifer’s new book! If you are making gifts this holiday then this is a go to guide with project ideas for everyone.
Next up was a little exploring the public market. I have been here a few times and every time, I go into sensory overload. The weather was beautiful, the people were colorful and the smells were heavenly. Food, coffee, jams, flowers…and of course fresh fish and seafood.
Yummy! I picked up a pack of chocolate linguine. We have tasted it raw and it is delicious. We are planning on serving it with fresh whipped cream, sauteed bananas and chopped chilled raspberries.
I was delighted that the Creative Confrence of Entrepenures was being held in the historical and fabtastic OddFellows Building. The space reminded me of theater and dance spaces that I ran around in back in Des Moines, IA when I was a little girl. Big cellings, hardwood floors and a history.
The conference kicked off with a bang! We all learned so much from each other. I was the second speaker of the day and I spoke on how I climbed the “glitter and glue ladder” and the positive effects “cold calling” had on my career.
