Sleeping In Seattle

Tuesday, November 22, 2016

Two weekends ago Dan and I took a drive up to Seattle to enjoy a weekend away just the two of us to celebrate our ten year dating anniversary. Our wedding anniversary always falls during such a busy time of year being in the middle of the summer, so it's always nice to escape for a couple days in November when life settles down a little bit before the holiday craziness starts. Seattle is always the perfect escape because it's far enough away that we don't go there all the time, but it's close enough to drive there even if we're only going for a couple days.

We stayed at the W Seattle Hotel. Our room ended up being on the 24th floor so we could a neat view of the city. The hotel is located on 4th street, so only a few blocks from Pike's Place Market and all the big shops of Seattle.

We got there late in the afternoon on Saturday so we checked into our hotel and headed out to get some happy hour and a drink.

Sunday we woke up early cause of the time change but we took our time getting ready. We headed out and walked down to Pikes Place Market and made our obligatory stop at the Market and at the Original Starbucks.
It was such a nice November day we decided to explore a few places around the city that have been on our to do list for a while. We made a stop at the Olympic Sculpture park that's a few blocks from the Space Needle and sits between the Space Needle and the Waterfront and is the perfect spot for a view of each! We saw so many families out exploring for the day and lots of photographers taking family and couple photos. You can always tell your in the PNW on a nice day because everyone is outside soaking in the sunshine!
I've also always wanted to visit the Fremont Troll that was featured in a part of the movie 10 Things I Hate About You, so we finally made it there too! It was a quick stop, but fun to check off our list! It was also really close to the Ballard neighborhood in Seattle so we headed there after our visit with the troll for lunch and some shopping at their huge Sunday farmer's market.
We ended our Sunday night with dinner at our favorite spot in Seattle, The Purple Cafe. If you're a lover of wine and good food, you should absolutely add this place to your dining list for a visit to Seattle. The food is amazing and the wine list is a mile long! One of my favorite things they do is offer wine flights where you can pair your dinner with three different wines from a certain wine region of the world. It's a fun way to try new wines and experience them paired with your meal.

Seattle was such a fun getaway, but of course we were excited to get home to our sweet girl. I'm so thankful when we make time for our relationship and every more grateful that we have amazing parents who watch Harper for us to make those dates possible. Dating your spouse becomes even more important once you become a parent, and it's time away like our time in Seattle that reminds me of this!

What's your favorite thing to do for date night?
