Despite the rise of tech giants like Microsoft and Amazon, Boeing actually remains the Seattle area’s largest private employer.

Ahh, Hanalei. I daydream about this place more than anywhere else that doesn’t involve skiing, which is funny because it’s about as far from snow as you can get. If you’ve found a more perfect beach town – anywhere – please let me know where it is. We went to Kauai for a week this summer, and although we stayed […]
