Life Lately, the Seattle version

pikes-1So let it begin. This is the first of numerous Seattle posts I’ll be sharing very soon. You’ll see so much tourist-a-licious stuff and sights I saw with my local cousin and things I researched and read about before I made my way north (like a whole store dedicated to cookbooks and an awesome nursery with a cafe and koi pond! No, I’m not your average tourist).

To begin, here is a little sampling from a few days in the Emerald City. I saw the charm of the city and why so many of my friends want to pack their backs and move there.
