I Heart Seattle

While I'm excited to move to New York, Seattle will always hold a special place in my heart. I know I'll be back often and not just because my in-laws live here. It's a beautiful city, full of vibrant culture, incredible displays of nature and as you may have noticed, food worth writing home about. Here's my little tribute to the Emerald City in photo form. Farewell, Seattle.

the Olympic Sculpture Park on a sunny day

my favorite food truck

cherry blossoms in bloom

coffee as an art form

the fresh flowers, flying fish and fruit stands within Pike Place Market

afternoon snacks from Le Panier

the colorful locals (this may be the best representation of Seattle's population on record)

a solution for east coast pizza cravings

Rainier cherries

living an hour away from waterfalls

tea and crumpets on a rainy day

challenging goats at the zoo to staring contests


Trophy cupcakes

ferry rides

the inordinate amount of lavender

watching the sunset from these chairs

    Thank you for sharing, I am really enjoying your blog!

  3. I have never been to the West Coast at all... It looks lovely!

  4. Wow. What a lovely photo collection. I lived in Seattle for only a month. This makes me want to go back and experience it more.

    Every part of all this soil is sacred to my people.
    Every hillside, every valley, every plain and grove has been hollowed by some sad or happy event in days long vanished.
    The very dust you now stand on responds more willingly to their footsteps than to yours, because it is rich with the blood of our ancestors and our bare feet are conscious of the sympathetic touch.

  6. These pictures make me want to visit! It sounds like a wonderful place to live.

  7. You make life seem so wonderful! I think I need to go out and make a picture tribute to my city- it might really make me appreciate it more!

  8. We're going to miss you! Come back soon and safe travels!
