I flew to Spokane, Washington to visit my lifelong next door neighbor Carly. It was her family weekend at Gonzaga University. I went with her mom and we made a weekend of it. We went to good restaurants, thrift stores, Walmart, looked around the campus and took a hike at Couer d'Alene. I've been dreaming of going to Washington for years now and it blew my expectations out of the water. It was more beautiful than I could have imagined. I can't wait to go back.
