We heart the 253. Sunday, Sept. 10, is the 253rd day of the year, a day we like to use as an excuse to celebrate being part of "the 253." You can celebrate, too—whether by revisiting the Arches list of "25 Things We Love About Tacoma," munching on some Almond Roca, watching 10 Things I Hate About You (again), perusing one of the surprisingly high number of "Tacoma Love" boards on Pinterest, or doing any of the myriad other things that make living in the City of Destiny awesome. You can also watch this video. Happy #253Day!
