A couple of weekends ago we ran away to Seattle. It was one of those times when we were both exhausted and stressed, and it was either the perfect time to leave for the weekend or the worst timing ever. But we’d made the plan, the dogs were booked at the kennel (which we made it to about five minutes before closing time), so we got in the car and went for it.
Ruby was STOKED.
We stayed at the Sorrento Hotel and completely loved it. The fact that they upgraded us to a suite didn’t hurt. We’ll be back.
The fact that they had french press coffee in the room didn’t hurt either. Where has this been all my life?!
Pike Place Market…you have my heart. We could have easily eaten every meal of the weekend there, and we came pretty close.
Being near water always makes me feel so happy and centered.
I stumbled into Marimekko and nearly died. Too much pretty in one place. I left with my wallet intact, thank the Lord.
I had to visit the famous Left Bank Books, though I’m fairly certain they did NOT approve of the evil corporate coffee I was carrying, nor the evil corporate smartphone I was using to take this picture, hence the shaky hand and slightly blurred photo. I still love it. Vonnegut fans unite (and guys, stop stealing. uncool)!
We had a beautiful vegan dinner at Plum Bistro, including this grilled pizza with roasted garlic, red potatoes, olives, capers, rosemary, and vegan mozzarella cheese. It was totally out of my comfort zone but one of the best meals I’ve had in a long time! We’ll be back for you as well, Plum Bistro.
And then there was this guy. What can I say?
We love you, Seattle! We’ll be back.
