Sleepless in Seattle

image.jpg

Weeks before heading out West, I had sat down and googled all things Seattle. (I had also bugged my boss, who lived in Seattle for many years, about local spots that she recommended. Thanks again, Amber!) It would be my first time in this city, and I wanted to make the most of it. Little did I know, by the end of the trip, a piece of my heart would always stay behind.  

Here's a look into my short stay at one of my new favorite places. Seattle, you were so good to me. (And I can't wait to do it again).

 I have been a big fan of Moorea Seal for several months now, and I was finally able to head into her store in Seattle. Dreamy doesn't even begin to describe it!

 Moorea's book was released the day I came into the store, so naturally I had to grab a copy. (Moorea herself even signed the inside cover, thank you again!) To learn more about the book and to grab your own copy, click  here .
