Flowery Seattle

SDC16061

I went to Seattle a couple weeks ago to meet up with my mom and sister. Though I was totally unprepared for the cold, wet weather, I had a lot of fun catching up with family, old friends, and new. I got to meet Emma, her husband, and her delightful boy (I will be posting about our meet-up in my next entry!). 

Since it was way too cold for me, and all the stuff I had was packed in anticipation of warmer weather, I ended up not taking any outfit photos. It was rainy most of the time I was up there, but I did manage to get a few pics of the gorgeous flowers I saw at the gardens by the locks.

In the midst of all this natural beauty, I decided to take advantage of the perfect, sunny lighting and snap a picture of myself. I wore pretty much the same look the whole time I was there.

Since I'm a broke recent grad looking for a job (hire me, please), I didn't spend a lot of money. I bought a few things, but most of them were zines, books, and comic books. Ridiculous. I did go sightseeing, though, demanding a photo with the famous troll:

  7. That troll is too funny. If I ever make my way to Seattle I think I'll have to demand a photo with it, too!

    Your flower pictures are so pretty! My favorite is the 4th one. Do you know what kind of flowers they are? I really like how the tips of the petals are pink.

  24. Totally jealous of your Seattle trip. Mr. A and I are kind of obsessed with wanting to move to Seattle sometime after we get married. I don't know if it will happen considering that neither of us has ever been there before. We plan to honeymoon out to the West Coast, though, and I'm sure that Seattle will be on the list of places to visit.
