Snapshots of a Babymoon

Merry Monday, lovelies! We're back from our trip and I would love to share a bit of our experience with you, if you like! Naturally, this is just a glimpse of our week, but is was all so lovely! Be warned, this post is pretty heavy on the pics:)

Our week began with a day in Portland, where we started the day with a delicious breakfast at a cute diner and them made our way to Powell's books, which is absolutely a book lovers heaven!!



Later on, we drove to Multnomah Falls, an absolutely breath-taking waterfall!




Then Monday morning, bright and early, we drove the three remaining hours to Seattle, making our first stop Pike's Place Market!


Had an obligatory treat at Le Panier (more on that tomorrow!).


And visited the Space Needle. We got there just before sunset and were able to get pics of the city during the day and some more after dark! Seattle is a beautiful city!!



{Love Mt. Rainier in the background!}



One of our anniversary outings was a trip to the Washington Park Botanical Gardens for a lovely and scenic walk. The weather was absolute perfection!




And on Wednesday we walked by the infamously gross gum wall...it was interesting.


And then rode a ferry over to Bainbridge Island.


Gorgeous Seattle skyline!


And lunched next to the pier. 


After an amazing dinner at Delancey, we made our way to the Ballard Marina to watch the sunset. 



Our last day in Seattle we drove to Bellingham to spend the day with my dear friend, Lael. It was such a delight to see her and explore her charming little town! Sadly, the only pictures I got were of the precious dessert shop she works at!

Did I mention how lucky we were to have amazing weather all week? All-in-all, it was a perfect and lovely getaway and I can hardly believe it's already over!

{Since we experienced culinary bliss this week, I thought that deserved its own post. So, coming tomorrow, Seattle Eats!}

Thanks! Haha, I know the gum wall was sick, but in a weird way, if you don't think about what it is it's kind of pretty and colorful...kind of;)
