Seattle bound

Mmmonday! Alas, the week is here. As mentioned last week, I {Anna} am packing up and heading west for the next 8 days. Quite the adventure awaits me starting in Seattle and I couldn't be more excited! As much as I adore living in Boston, there is something so comforting & calming about my home town. Yes, the lack of vitamin D and emo-culture largely contributes to the aforementioned calming effect, but spending time with some of the sweetest friends a girl could hope for is what I'm most excited for. Who am I kidding, I'd be happy bundled up inside talking for hours on end... but we'll likely be hitting up the favorite Seattle spots, some of which include the following:

{clockwise from top left: Cafe Vita; gum wall; Dick's Drive in; Pike PlaceGreat Seattle Wheel; Molly Moon; Fremont Troll; Elephant Car Wash; Fremont signs; Easy Street Records}

Yes, while sipping on the city's finest coffee, we'll play tourist and admire the quirky iconic signage, oooh and awe over how stunning Mt. Rainier looks and soak in every ounce of northwest culture that I can handle. The Great Seattle Wheel will be one of the first stops.

For those of you who have never ventured to Seattle, it's a must see! This city guide I stumbled upon over on Elephantine Blog is a fantastic place to start picking apart the city, neighborhood by neighborhood. Ciao for now!
