I love Seattle. Have I mentioned that before? Because I really do. I moved here for college (Go Huskies!), lived here for 7 years and found that I was getting not only bored with the city, but being here was actually making me angry. The rain! The traffic! I knew that I needed to get away for a bit in order to fully appreciate it again, so that’s what I did. After exploring NYC non-stop for a year, I couldn’t wait to get back to Seattle. I’ve been back for over a year and a half now (time flies, eh?), and am loving every second of it. I don’t even dread the commute across Lake Washington to get to work every day*.

*That’s not entirely true. I would love to be able to walk to work, but the views of Mt. Rainier (and the fact that I like my job) make the commute worth it.
As I mentioned briefly on Friday, Steve and I had some friends come to town last weekend. We did a ton of touristy things, and luckily for everyone involved, the weather was absolutely gorgeous. I wish I could take credit for the following photos, but let’s be honest. Nobody would believe me. My friends Matt and Sarah have a camera lens the size of a 3 month old baby. Or an adult sized thigh. Or a rolled sleeping bag. Or. You get the idea. Their camera takes beautiful photos anyway, but the ones from the top of the Space Needle turned out downright impressive. Thanks Matt for lending your skillz to the blog.
Disclaimer: I know this has nothing to do with anything I made or wore or created. I mean I didn’t even take the photos. But I like Seattle and I want you to like Seattle too.
Here are a few Seattle photos to get your Monday started off right.
