Ms. Sutich’s Favorites

GHA Tradition: Little and Big Buddies Time

Neighborhood Spot: Netshed 9 is a favorite! I love water views, so hanging out in the harbor is always nice.

Outdoor Activity: I enjoy walking/hiking in the woods or around beautiful nature.

Place to Read: In the warmer months, I enjoy sitting on my little balcony and reading. In cooler weather, I cozy up on my couch with my candles and other fun lights and read with a cup of tea.

Childhood Memory: My annual summer vacation to the San Juan Islands with my parents and sister. The tradition continues and I’ve only missed two years since I was 9 months old!
