the last stop on the onward now tour. we've spent two months driving from new york to get here: eight states, fifteen shows, one car-robbery, seven acts of kindness, and we made it. to the top of the space needle.
as the elevator door closes, you turn to me and say, i can't wait another second. marry me? it takes 41 seconds to get to the top of the observation deck but we wouldn't know because we haven't stopped kissing to breathe. as the elevator doors ding open, i say yes.
we have an itinerary full of planned activities and a sushi date on the agenda but we hop a ferry across the puget sound to olympic national park and find ourselves in the middle of hoh rainforest. we also explore the westernmost and northwesternmost points of the contiguous united states, bringing stones from both points to connect the points, like we've connected our hearts, ourselves, our homes.
