Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens… just kidding. This account of our 2019 highlights features none of Julie Andrews’ favorite things (though crisp apple strudel sounds like the perfect antidote to most of the year’s doom and gloom). What we’ve put together is a collection of top hits that includes everything from our favorite museum opening and best meals to the coolest innovations and Seattleites to make the news this year.
