A few weeks ago my husband and I hopped on a plane to meet some friends from Cincinnati for a little getaway in Seattle. We had been discussing a few months earlier our mutual desire to travel and since none of us had been to the northwest, we decided that would be a good place to start. And man, were we right – Seattle is amazing.  I had no idea there was SO much stuff to do there and after 4 full days I’m pretty sure we didn’t even do 1/4 of the things we wanted.

The weather could not have been nicer (which I’m sure helped my love of the city!) and the people were all super nice and super chill. The area is just so beautiful and so different from the flat, building-dense Chicago that I’m used to – I could definitely live among the mountains and millions of trees.

I tried to keep the post somewhat short but man, visit Seattle if you get the chance. Definitely tops my list of favorite US cities after this trip, and we can’t wait to go back!
