Oh, the places you’ll go…Seattle

If you could hop on a plane and travelĀ anywhere in the world right this minute, where would you go?


I’ve only been to Seattle twice but the first time felt like I was returning home. Ever since then I have felt like I left a piece of myself behind. If you’ve never been, I highly recommend a trip there. It’s so hard to describe the vibe of the Pacific Northwest. I haven’t experienced a place like this anywhere else.

Some top spots to check out:

Things I love about this city:

  • Foodie heaven
  • Coffee galore
  • Music to soothe the soul
  • Water, mountain, city life

Basically I need to move here ASAP.

What was your last major purchase?


For nearly a decade I have been taking photographs. It calms me, centers me, and allows me to express myself. Photography is one of my loves.

Three years ago I purchased my first DSLR and haven’t looked back. Usually major purchases involve a mix of buyer’s guilt and indecision for me, but not this time. It was my Christmas present to myself.

In_a_Row_by_teafunny35th_Street_by_teafunnyThis shot is one of my firsts taken in my hometown. I love the simplicity of black and white photos, the whole story of the photo is hidden with the details just beneath the surface. I try to have my camera with me at all times, not knowing when inspiration will hit.

This is a later shot in Seattle that was taken while I was on vacation. It is one of my favorite photos I have ever taken. All of Washington was amazing and perfect to photograph. The Pacific Northwest is my dream destination.

My weakness in photography is portraits. I am never happy with what I manage to capture. Plus, I guess I am not a people person which would be helpful when trying to photograph others.

What hobby of yours keeps you sane?
