Seattle By Night
Seattle By Night

Isn’t it strange how everything changes at night? Sometimes you get lost even in places you’ve been before because it becomes so unfamiliar after the sun sets. Some places get scarier in the dark, others more exciting, though whatever the transformation brings it’s always tantalizing and electric. We loved Seattle in the day, but we… Read more »

On Top of Seattle // Visiting the Space Needle

The Space Needle is a truly magnificent structure and one that we just ~had~ to climb while we were in Seattle. After brunch at nearby Tilikum Place Cafe, we walked over to the park where the Space Needle stands, snapping pictures at pretty much every corner as we approached (it just got more and more… Read more »

Seattle Eats // Tilikum Place Cafe
Seattle Eats Tilikum Cafe

We woke up on Sunday morning in Seattle, exhausted and slightly hungover from dancing Saturday night away at an Odesza show. After pulling ourselves together, we headed into the city to find some brunch. Enter Tilikum Place Cafe. With a 4.5 star average out of over 800 reviews on Yelp, it seemed like a more-than-promising option… Read more »

Everything changes at night. I find the nighttime more exciting, enticing. Daytime is lovely and fun…the night just has an air of mystery about it. Of course New York City never slows down, and that just makes the darkness even more electric.

New York City // Visiting Ellis Island

I remember reading books about Ellis Island when I was little, filled with grainy black and white photos of people from all corners of the world seeking entry into the US. I specifically remember the pictures of people getting medical exams and getting marked on their clothes depending on the results of those exams. For… Read more »

Boston // Old North Church
Boston Old North Church

There’s just something about being in close contact with history that makes my skin all tingly. Do you know that feeling? Where you can immediately feel the weight surrounding a building or object, can sense the importance of what you’re beholding? Stepping inside Old North Church (Christ Church) in Boston gives you that feeling; the… Read more »

New York City // Brooklyn Museum

Manhattan is abundant in excellent museums, but crossing the river into Brooklyn for the Brooklyn Museum is absolutely worth the trip. Similar to my experience at the National Academy Museum, there were very few other guests that day, giving my mind space to wander and my feet permission to walk as leisurely as they wanted;… Read more »
