Postcards From Washington

Known for its bleak weather, thriving music scene, and coffee shops, Washington is anything but dreary.

A few weeks ago, I traveled to Washington, to visit one of my best friends from high school. I had never traveled to the Pacific Northwest before, but I was absolutely thrilled to go. From the band, Death Cab for Cutie, to Starbucks and Nordstrom, Washington has been home to a number of my favorite things. I was ecstatic to see the state that had contributed to so many of the things I love, not to mention getting to see my friend, whom I hadn’t seen in over a year. I was not disappointed, and became completely enamored with the state's natural beauty, art, weather, bustling cities, and the people I met there.

Railing behind Pike Place Market. The ocean's proximity to the market was surprising to me. I grew up in Denver, so I’m used to being landlocked in cities. Even after living in New York for a summer, I still can’t get used to the idea of having water so close to a metropolis.

The Seattle Great Wheel, behind Pike Place. We didn't have time to go on it, but it looked like a lot of fun.

Based on Seattle's unofficial status as the coffee capital of the US, we couldn't resist hitting up as many coffee shops as we could.

Chuckanut Drive had the cutest signs. Hundreds of trees were adorned with carvings that professed couple's undying love for one another.
