I'm Listening

We're back from Seattle and I wanted to give a quick recap of our trip.  (Full stories and pictures to come!)

  • Seattle is one of the most beautiful cities!  The mountains, the lush greenery and the fresh air made me never want to leave.  This girl can handle a little rain!
  • Kurt Cobain's house was even more picturesque than I could ever have imagined.  Being a huge Nirvana fan, this was a must see for me.
  • Dan and I both have a weird obsession with true crime and serial killers, so taking a tour that stopped at some of Seattle's more infamous locations was a really interesting way to get acquainted with the city. 
  • Another city, another baseball field.  Two words, garlic fries.
  • A quick drive over to Tacoma to visit some of the locations that one of my favorite guilty pleasure movies was filmed at.  Hint: Heath Ledger and Julia Stiles.
  • A longer drive down to Portland, OR for Voodoo Donuts.  This was an absolute must on my bucket list of life.
  • Two cute, hidden speakeasies.
  • Millions of peaches, peaches for me.  Millions of peaches, peaches for free.
  • MOUNT RAINIER.  No words.  She finally came out on the last day we were there and the view was worth the wait.
  • Getting sick atop the Space Needle.  Great view but holy vertigo.
  • Lots and lots of Macklemore.  And Starbucks.
  • And the best burritos I have ever tasted in my life.

I have always wanted to go to Seattle - now I know I definitely have to make it happen! Especially with things like garlic fries and peaches to look forward to!
