New week y’all!! It’s the end of October, Nick and I are kicking off the beginning of our 3rd year of marriage and I can hear 2019 singing softly in the distance. We are enjoying our last day in Mendocino for our anniversary (blog posts to come!!) and I thought it was a good time to kind of recap the last month. At the end of September, we were in Seattle for a cousin’s wedding, so a lot of my instagram posts were in the PNW.

When we go to Washington, sometimes we stay Seattle proper, but more often than not we are staying in a suburb. The past couple of times we have gone we have stayed in Kirkland - it is the prettiest little city! I thought I’d share a couple things to do, see and EAT. Maybe one day I’ll do a more in depth one, but for now, think of this as a mini travel guide.

To Do:

  • Marina Park / Lake Washington: I will never get tired of the water!

  • Walk Around Downtown: downtown is so cute! There’s a lot to do and see and usualllllly a festival or something.

To Eat:

  • George’s Restaurant - down home cooking! Get the chicken and waffles.

  • Homegrown - locally sourced ingredients with amazing flavors. Breakfast and lunch!

  • The French Bakery - amazing pastries and delightful sandwiches. Get the croque monsieur!

  • Zoka Coffee Roasters - pretty good craft coffee, teas, and pastries.

  • The Lodge - bar food - get the burger!

  • The Wok - I can’t remember what the name of this place changed to, but it’s a fun little bar. Get the deviled eggs!

Enjoy the pictures! My outfit details are listed under each image. I think my favorite look is still the burgundy floral jumpsuit!! It’s on super sale right now too.
