Seattle Trip 2018

Hello beauties!

I’ve been back from my trip to Seattle, WA for a few days now and I don’t think anything will ever be able to top this vacation. I am so thankful for the time I got to spend with my friends and loved ones in such a beautiful city. Thankfully, the weather was perfect – we got clear skies and temperatures 70 and above for our entire stay. It felt like summer and made me so excited for the next few months.

Here are some highlights from the Emerald City:

These pictures feature our trips to the Museum of Pop Culture (MoPOP), the Seattle Aquarium, the Gum Wall, Top Pot Doughnuts, Ivar’s, Washington Park Arboretum, and the Seattle Japanese Garden.

Some other places we visited during our stay were the Pike Place Market, where you can buy fresh fruits, fish, and pastries; Nacho Borracho, which has the best tacos and frozen margaritas (on tap!!!!!!); Blue Moon Burgers, some of the greatest buildable burgers (vegetarian options available); and Optimism Brewing Company, which offers amazing beers, food trucks, and games.

My favorite part of our trip was during our first day. After a long day of traveling from Boston to Seattle, making our way through museums and food, we stopped at Kerry Park for some classic Seattle skyline pictures… to my surprise, I got a little more than pictures that day. WE’RE GETTING MARRIED!!!

So, for those of you that don’t know, I have been dating Tad since 2010. We’ve always talked about marriage, so when he asked for my ring size a few months ago I didn’t think anything of it. He’d asked so many times before, so I just thought he was asking for later in the future or whatever. Little did I know, he’d be popping the question on our trip to Seattle! With a beautiful view in our background, my best friend asked me to marry him.

This was the best vacation ever. Get ready for wedding planning everyone!

Vacation time

Happy Monday!

Every Monday I usually think to myself ‘wow, I wish I was still in bed’ or that I was on vacation… and let me tell you this Monday is no different. Monday’s are the absolute WORST, but next Monday I’ll be on a plane to one of my favorite places. We’re heading back to Seattle, WA!

Seattle is one of my favorite places to visit. Coming from the East Coast, the atmosphere just seems so different in Seattle. The air seems cleaner, the people seem nicer, the scenery is much more beautiful… My boyfriend, Tad, and I have traveled across the country to Seattle a few times in the last two years. Sure, it’s not a tropical getaway, but it’s fun nonetheless.

In celebration of our upcoming vacation, here are some pictures from our trips to the PNW:
