Your favorite Kirkland bag lady

rsz_dsc_0621Dearest Kirkland: You may not know it but I’m probably your biggest fan. I love your beaches, your quaint stores, your cottages and your multi-million dollar estates. I love that most of my memories took place here, like the time my friend Michelle and I tried to sneak into Park Place theater to see a rated R movie (Pretty Woman) but got caught and had to see a PG flick instead (The Hunt for Red October). I still get a little mad whenever I see Sean Connery.

I love that the same beaches I went to as a kid are the ones my kids go to now; I still remember the time I rode my bike to Waverly Beach with friends and thought I was pretty much the coolest kid on earth. I love that I remember shopping at the downtown Kirkland JC Penny and I was a size 6x. I wonder if that is still a size?  Anyway Kirkland, you are simply the best. But even though you are basically my BFF, you do have one fault.

On March 1st the city of Kirkland is banning plastic bags in about 170 stores. Goodbye plastic bags, hello reusable ones. No, these are not free like the plastic bags we all know and love, and it will require a little more effort to bring them into stores. But because I love Kirkland (and the environment) I put in the effort for you and ordered a WHOLE LOT of them!

I’m giving the bags away, and you don’t even have to live in Kirkland to get one! Each reusable bag will even save you tens of dollars over the year in avoiding the 5 cent paper bag fee. Just think of all the things you can use them for. Plus, now you’ll never forget who your favorite real estate agent is!


Next time you see me around town I’d be happy to give you one. Just look how much fun they are!
