life // Seattle getaway

Hi loves!  Tomorrow I am headed for the great state of Washington to visit a dear friend in Seattle. 

Frankly, I'm a little panicked about this trip because I'm leaving behind a lot of work that needs doing.  I'm trying to bang out as much as possible tonight but I keep getting distracted.  It's a specialty of mine; I think it's entirely possible I could have ADD.

Still, I'm excited for Seattle!  I haven't visited in at least seven or eight years and even then, I spent more time in Portland (versus a mere afternoon in Seattle).

This means that I need some suggestions from you for what to do while I'm there!  I won't have a car and I'm not sure how far from the city center I'm staying (I'll be at my friend's house and I think she lives in a nearby suburb, but I'm not positive).  But if there's anything that's a "must-see" or "must-do" (other than Pike Place Market -- I'll be going there for sure!), leave me a comment!

I'm also looking forward to meeting Erika from Rouge & Whimsy -- yay!

Have you been to the Pacific Northwest?  What's your favorite domestic getaway city?

  3. Seattle is on my must visit list! I've never been past Oregon, can't wait to see pics! Have a blast!


  4. i live in seattle. go to the waterfront is amazing. alki beach is super beautiful.

  5. so happy to have found your blog! I love the drive to Vancouver from Seattle!



  6. I live in downtown Seattle! It all depends on what you like to do for fun but you could take a short ferry ride to Vashon or Bainbridge Island, visit Capitol Hill for an EXCELLENT night life (Google Knee High Stocking Company if you want to visit a super cool speak-easy that's intentionally hidden in plain view but so worth your time) or if you want good food in a good restaurant any one of Tom Douglas' restaurants is a hit. Tomorrow night I'll be eating at La Carta Oaxaca in Ballard where you will finding some of the most AMAZING mexican food. A short drive to Alki Beach in West Seattle is good for a long stroll and conversations with a view of the city and good eats. I have so many ideas but don't want to take up too much space here but let me know if you need more suggestions! : )
    Have a great time!

  7. I second the comment for Woodinville (although I'm a bit biased since I grew up there). Purple Cafe is amazing too (they are in Woodinville, Bellevue, Kirkland & Seattle).


  8. Went to Seattle last summer. LOVED the tour that runs under the city. Very cool...Interesting if you like history. Have a great time!!

  9. I've been really loving your Seattle pics on IG! I'm just a little bit green with envy. Looks like such a lovely place to visit!
