I spent all of last weekend in Seattle, celebrating my sister and her nuptials! I haven’t been to Seattle in forever so I wasn’t really sure what to expect weather-wise. I’ve heard that they have a lot of rain so I pretty much packed for all contingencies. Thankfully, we landed to warm and sunny weather and actually ended up bumping into two of my cousins which made for a quick ride to the hotel! We stayed at the Hotel Ballard, which was located in this cute little hamlet in Seattle. It was packed with tasty coffee shops, lunch spots and even had an awesome farmer’s market!
Our hotel room actually had this amazing little deck that we opened up on both days we were there so we could take in the fresh air and beautiful area surrounding us. It actually started raining on our last day, which I absolutely loved. It was sunny and hot for the wedding, but the last day made it feel like fall was actually here. Note: it’s been super hot and sunny in San Francisco and I’m just itching for some rainy fall weather to actually happen so I got very giddy when I saw falling golden leaves and rain in Seattle. Yup, I’m a weirdo.
We also got to check out the flower area. OMG. Seattle, you have the most amazing floral arrangements I have ever seen and so ridiculously inexpensive. Most bouquets I saw were $5 and the most expensive I ever encountered was $15. That’s crazy! You couldn’t get beautiful flowers like those for $5 in San Francisco. Someone tell me, what’s their secret?
