So I flew across the country this weekend. Why? Besides fueling my wanderlust spirit aka my need to seek, discover and adventure, I flew to Seattle to attend the International Food Blogger Conference. I’ve watched, wondered, and have wanted to attend this conference for a while now. So when the opportunity presented itself, I jumped (and perhaps squealed) at the chance.
Seattle is a city I’ve been wanting to get to know for a couple years now. The scenic serene views, culinary conscious culture, and street style really had me intrigued. And I can honestly say its lived up to (or even surpassed) my expectations. And let’s face it, sometimes my expectations get me into trouble because of the often and inevitable let down. However, this weekend in Seattle, that’s not the case. I’m happily soaking up every bit of the goodness the Pacific Northwest has to offer and it feels pretty damn delicious.
After being at the conference from 8am-7pm already today, I decided to put my self in time out. Well kinda. Not because I’m in trouble but because I wanted to take a moment alone, away from masses to step back from the whirlwind and be still. There’s so much to gain and see and taste and learn and grow from before|during|and after these events, that it usually takes a while to give it the processing time it deserves.
So while I’m processing, check out my trip thus far through the lens of my bff …umm iphone. Seattle sure makes it easy to capture moments beautifully.
ciao for now, ya’ll.
officially sleepless in Seattle.
