Eat: Cake!

I am not the biggest fan of cakes.  My mother makes amazing and delicious wedding cakes and I think over the years I appreciate cakes more and more with my eyes than my taste buds.  I'm more of an ice cream gal.  Nevertheless cakes are a beautiful addition to any party.  I have selected some of my all time favorite (mostly wedding) cakes to share with all of you so I hope you enjoy!

Travel: Port Townsend Washington

I made time tonight to go through the pictures from my recent trip to Port Townsend on the Olympic Peninsula.  I went for a long weekend and I think I had coffee/food/drink on just about every patio and balcony on the water while I was there.  There is something so hypnotizing about the waves, the sound lulls you to sleep, and staring puts you in a trance.  So relaxing I can't wait to go back, and only two hours from Seattle, I won't be away for long.
Check out the pictures ad my recommendations and the end of the post.
Thanks for reading!

Where to stay: The Swan, The Tides Inn
Where to eat: still looking for the perfect spot!  In the mean time I'll live off Elevated ice cream.
Where to "hydrate":  Sirens (good drinks, decent food, AMAZING view)
Where to caffeinate: Better Living Through Coffee
Where to shop: The Conservatory, The Summer House, The Green Eye Shade, and the art galleries are        fun to look through

 Check out my last post inspired by this getaway...

Shopping: city to the sea

This weekend I made my escape from the city to the sea.  A lot of walking, some shopping, but mostly staring at the waves and distant islands.  I have tried to memorize the sound of the surf on the shore and vowed that I would visit the water more often.  I live in seattle for goodness sake, it shouldn't be that hard.

Here are some escape inspired finds to help bring a nautical touch to your home.

(each item links to wear you can buy)
