Summer Fourth Celebration

It’s an all time favorite to celebrate July 4th  in Seattle/ Bellevue with Seafair Summer Fourth at Gas Works Park and the Bellevue Family 4th on the Eastside just across the lake. A great way to spend outdoor with friends and families with late night fireworks show and activities for all age groups.  We’re hoping for good weather and sunshine at the festivities.

REI Plans to Move HQ to Bellevue

REI Plans to Move HQ to Bellevue by Jesse Tam –  REI signed a non-binding letter of intent to relocated to Bellevue from Kent to a new headquarters in the new Bellevue Spring District by   2020.  The REI outdoor retailer will be on eight acres of land as the proposed new headquarters. The project will include other offices and residential complex on this new site.

The future Spring District is surrounded by parks and wilderness, and a new light rail station nearby is set to open in 2023.  It will also be home to the Global Innovation Exchange, a new technology and entrepreneurship graduate school development.

Bellevue continues to grow as a hub for business and technology.  It is home to tech giants like Expedia, Concur, and T-Mobile, and also to more than 1,000 up-and-coming startups.  REI has a flagship satellite store in Bellevue known for outdoor recreation and sporting retailer.  Thanks for visiting  Jesse.

The Key to Life

The Key to Life – Jesse Tam.  Our lives are filled with social media, technology and fast pace.  We often forget the most important things which surrounds us and those who had touched our hearts. Everyone dreams about being rich or famous, but that is only material things. Does achieving wealth or success make us happier in life?  Maybe for a short period of time, but it wears off and we all become human once more.

Stick with positive people and make changes in this world.  Those who are negative and create gossip…it doesn’t matter.  Our destiny in life and path is not for us to decide, so when we must leave to a better place – we must follow.  Now dance from above and shine overhead.  Until we meet again,  may the smiles and memories live forever.

“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life.  When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’.  They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.”
