Scenes from Seattle

I can count on two fingers the number of times my husband and I have had a chance to get away, just the two of us. In our twelve years of marriage, two children, a veritable menagerie of pets, and memorable vacations, only two of them were by ourselves.

So when the opportunity to steal away came about, needless to say, it was one we anticipated eagerly.

We stole away to Seattle for a few days, and other than exploring this beautiful and amazing town, it was having this time with my husband that meant the most. Between a busy travel schedule and the holiday season, having these rare days to ourselves was even more significant.

Having the time to stroll and explore, holding my husband’s hand, perhaps that is what I will remember most of all.

I did manage to take a few photos along the way. Seattle and Pike Place Market, you are beautiful. I can’t wait to visit you again.

    Ryan and I were just talking about how we wanted to visit the Pacific Northwest. Clearly this post makes me want to visit even more! What beautiful photographs!

    Isn’t it beautiful? I so love being in Seattle. Looks like you hit all my favorite spots at The Market. You should plan to come again in the spring for the Tulip Festival up north in Mt Vernon. Acres and acres of tulip fields.

    Beautiful photos, Liren! I was just in Seattle last month myself, and I fell in love. I can’t wait to go back. That dog-on-dog photo is just too cute. Great shot.
