It’s been a great summer so far, and one of the highlights was seeing good blogging buddy Fran in town last week! You may know her from her blog, Franish, and these other lovely ladies, Bri of Work Clothes, I Suppose and Katrina of The Demure Muse. Fran is currently in medical school across the country, and last year we were lucky enough to get a visit before she began her program. She’s now done with year 1 and I’m so glad she made it back to Seattle for another visit (thus the part deux). Last time she was in town it was just us girls out for dinner and bubble tea, but this time we brought the boys with us and the eight of us went for a great dinner at Barrio here on Capitol Hill (which I highly recommend, it’s so great!). Fran was here just about the same time last year and the weather was just the same; perfectly warm and beautiful.

We talked a little about the blogs, but mostly just enjoyed catching up on each other’s lives, in person for a change instead of just via blog, and of course snapped some photos, or rather my sweet boyfriend J. did for us. It’s so funny how you can meet people online through something silly and simple like taking pictures of what you wear, and find amazing friends, even those who live across the country. Love that and these girls to pieces.
