I know I don’t do any travel posts on my blog, I would if I actually traveled a lot more ( Still hoping for that all expense paid month long trip to Bora Bora) but this is primarily a food blog and I am travelling for a food conference in Seattle in a few days, the International Food Blog Conference or IFBC. I am really looking forward to a couple days in slightly cooler weather. It is still in the high 90′s here in Vegas!!
The first time I ever went to Seattle was for a good friend’s wedding at her parents house on Vashon Island. I didn’t know it at the the time but my then boyfriend, now husband, was planning on proposing to me that weekend. It was all planned out and he even had our friend the bride toss me the bouquet as a hint. Yeah I still didn’t catch on. We actually were staying in Gig Harbor – cutest little town ever by the way – and he proposed there after the wedding. We spent the next couple days playing tourist around Seattle before driving back to Portland, Oregon where we lived at the time. As you can see here we did the obligatory tourist stop at the Space Needle. It was COLD and rainy, but we didn’t care. And it was this week 8 years ago that he proposed. Time flies
