    I am very excited to read about Rosanna’s trip to Washington state. I live in the western (Puget Sound region) of Washington. I hope she has a fabulous time. We have been having a fantastic summer (no rain in weeks!). Sure love reading her column. She seems like such a strong independent spirit!
