XVIII: Seattle!

As promised, Let's Be Breef has chosen travel locations for the year and now, we are checking them off of the list. This week, I had the absolute pleasure of visiting a friend during a beautiful stay in Downtown Seattle!

I will admit that it is difficult to capture moments and locations while also trying to live in each moment, but I did my best! Here are a couple of photographs of my visit to Seattle.

Flying into Seattle is absolutely stunning!

Although I essentially left behind the sunshine and cool breeze of California for the clouds and frigid cold of Seattle, the sunrises and sunsets that you get make all of the cold worth it. 

Thank you, Southwest for flawless travels even in light of a couple of delays. They worked overtime to make sure that everyone made it to where they were supposed to be within good time.

Seattle is such a food hub!

But, there would be no food without amazing chefs.

 As someone who literally collects Starbucks cups from every city, state, and country that she visits, there was no way that I would come to Seattle and  not  go to the first Starbucks ever!  This Starbucks is located centrally within the Pike Place Market and is surrounded by plenty of delicious bread stands, ethnic cuisines, and cheese! Lots of cheese!

Seattle, the city of love.

I have never seen so many people excited to buy bouquets of flowers for loved ones. Everywhere you turn and every market that you enter has a wide assortment of fresh flowers! 

This is unique, for me, because I do not see many people that do little things to make others happy here in Sacramento.

When I do things for others, they either end up confused as to why someone is so nice and thoughtful, or filled with guilt enough to make them want to buy me something in return.

Can we bring back thoughtfulness, or should I just pack up my belongings and head to Downtown Seattle now?
