Mount Rainier
Days like today remind me of how easy it is to take our mountains for granted. Just yesterday, driving across the lake, I got a great big mountain in my eye; Mount Rainier in all its glory, sun glancing off of glaciers, etc. etc. Today, no sign of it...except on the cover of our May issue!

Hey Seattle, someone has validated your bad habit: Fashion guru Tim Gunn says it’s okay to wear jeans to work. Well, sometimes. This weekend, Gunn will explain why (plus give other great tips on how to work your denim) at a Lucky Brand denim fashion show in center court at Bellevue Square (Saturday starting at 1 p.m.; more info here).
