Coincidently, we also celebrated her birthday while we were at YES! Magazine. It's particularly noteworthy because her mom sent this epically large chocolate cake to the office. While there weren't more than 20 people at the YES! office, this ginormous cake could easily feed 100 plus people. It was hilarious... and delicious. (pictured above, even though photos don't do justice of this cake's size) I remember the cake was mermaid-themed because Jenni is from Florida. We were eating that cake for months. We froze big chunks of it. Side note: Dylan is her dog back home.
I guess there could be another large cake on the horizon... not that I'm complaining.
I've also been reminiscing about our trip to Mt. Rainier, one of our last outings together before I left Seattle. It was our only double date; Mark flew in to visit during the last week of my internship. Before that, I hung out a lot with just Jenni and her then-boyfriend pretty regularly.
Jenni probably enjoyed making snow balls a little too much, since it was a novel experience. Mark was also in rare form: Happy!
Sigh. I do miss YES! a lot. There are many memories and beautiful things out in the Pacific Northwest. I hope I'm able to return there soon. Between the weather, the people, the climate, the culture... Everything about that place was surreal and amazing.
I'm sure Jenni and I will be reminiscing a lot!
