'For whoever finds us!' 💐

It’s a bunch of tulips, with a message: “For whoever finds us! 💐 Wishing you a bright and beautiful day.” And it’s signed, “C & R.”  

How sweet is that?

“Don’t know who C & R are,” Jim wrote us on Instagram. “I left them alone for the next passerby.”

Here’s hoping that C & R — whoever you are — made a lot of folks smile last week.

On that note, you’ve got til noon today to send in your answers to this question: “What keeps you in Seattle?” Is it someone you love, somewhere you work, something else worth staying or fighting for? We’ll be sharing back your answers in a weeklong series we’re launching on Wednesday, Seattle 165th birthday. Got a minute to tell us your story? Share it with us here.

Now, let’s help you make some plans…
