I have been to Seattle a handful of times over the years and I've always found it to be just okay. I never had a terrible experience or anything, I just never found that city or it's surrounding areas particularly charming. At the end of August, my husband and I took a trip up north for work and to see our dear friends. We spent the sweltering Saturday walking around town looking for something cold to drink. We were, quite literally, drenched in sweat. I have never taken a trip and returned with so few photographs. It was way too hot. After doing some more sight seeing, my friends surprised me with a visit to a cupcake shop for my birthday. Luckily we got there just in time for happy hour. Yay!
When it finally cooled off, we took a scenic walk through the Queen Anne neighborhood. It was magical. I started to feel like me and Seattle had some serious chemistry going on.
I woke up the next morning at 3:30 to head out for a photo shoot. I loved spending time with some of my favorite ladies and making beautiful things together. Here are some behind the scenes photos from the shoot compliments of miss Eleanor.
On the drive home all I could talk about was how much I loved Seattle. Maybe it was because my Seattle-savvy friends showed me around town and I wasn't in a fog as to where I was and where I was going. Maybe it was the aaamazing food I got to enjoy or the great people watching. Regardless, all I know is that I love Seattle.
