Eating, Playing, Kissing and Canoodling: Valentine’s in Kirkland

Do you feel the pressure of Cupid’s bow because you’ve been slow to hatch the perfect Valentine’s Day plan? Don’t worry about it. I’ve got you covered with a few ideas that are sure to put a smile on your sweetheart’s face—and ensure that Cupid’s arrow is aimed at his or her heart, not your head!

Indoor Options

  1. If a fancy, romantic dinner will do the trick for your ideal Valentine’s Day date, Ristorante Paradiso is the place to dine. Serving quintessential Italian cuisine with a wonderful wine list, this stellar restaurant offers an intimate atmosphere and a local vibe. But, it’s always packed—so be sure to make a reservation!
  2. When you’re ready for dessert (and, really, who isn’t?) be sure to make your way to Lady Yum for a scrumptious and delectable assortment of mouth-watering macarons and champagne.

  1. If you’re looking for a more casual night out with your sweetheart, why not keep it low key and have a few local beers or ciders and play a round or two of Mini Golf at Flatstick Pub? It’s always fun, and you can even bring your pooch—because I know who is really the love of your life, am I right?

It’s hard to choose favorites when there are so many gorgeous parks and beautiful water views in Kirkland but here are my “Top Three” because of their spectacular sunset views around Lake Washington.

Totem Lake Drone Flyover

2017 in Kirkland has some big changes ahead in Totem Lake! Check out the redev as seen through this flyover provided by Blake Swanson.
Word on the street is that Chick fil-A is planning to open soon in Kirkland following the demolition of Denny’s Restaurant in Totem Lake.
 
If you live within a 2 mile radius of Totem Lake, you can expect your property values to see some major gains as this entire area is redeveloped! Woot Woot!

Home Is Where the Christmas Tree Is.

Home is where the Christmas tree is!

Or where the Menorah is lit. Or the Kwanzaa candles burn bright.

This time of year I can’t help but to think about how awesome my “job” is.

Mom and I love working with our buyers and sellers all year ’round but this time of year is special!

Walking through houses and writing contracts does not even begin to reveal the best part of being a Realtor. The reward is seeing all of you in your homes, with your family, new babies and friends enjoying the spirit of the season and a good Seahawks win!

When our clients post pictures of their houses decorated with lights on their “1st” Christmas tree on Facebook it makes me smile so big!

I have so much joy knowing that I played a critical role in helping my buyers find and purchase their home.

With much bad news in the media about ISIS and random acts of terror, I can’t help but to focus on the love that this season brings. This year more than ever my Christmas wish is: Peace on Earth and Good Will Toward Men.

Happy Blue Friday and look for those Blue Angels!

It’s that awesome time of year again when the Blue Angels fly into town and perform two air shows over the water. If you are a local, you have probably planned ahead, taken the weekend off work and counting down since last summer.

This year seems especially cool because it just so happens that everyone’s favorite Quarterback, Russell Wilson, just resigned his contract with our beloved Seahawks! (can I getta woot woot?!!)

So celebrate all things in BLUE  on this Bluest of Friday’s in true Northwest style this weekend. Head to a spot on Lake Washington* and watch the Blue Angels dive over all of us spectators on the water! I’ll be out there in the middle yelling and whooping it up!

Seafair 2015!
