One Tuesday morning in mid-January my younger sister and I spontaneously booked flights to Seattle, leaving less than 2 weeks from our booking date. We saw a fare sale, we texted briefly, we booked the flights. Just Do It January for the win.
No, we're not twins. Yes, you're the first person to ask.
A week ago today we hopped on a plane and jetted off to our favorite place on earth. We spent 3 short days falling in love with Seattle all over again, hugging friends we love so dearly and eating a ridiculous amount of food. And drinking coffee, obviously.
Yes, it rains in Seattle. All the stories you've heard are true. Yes, it rained the entire time we were there. I would still take the rain and upper 40's over a Minnesota winter. Honestly, I absolutely love the rain. True story.
Thursday morning we tried to get bumped off our flight, which would've extended our stay in Seattle by a full 24 hours. No luck. I'll be honest, friends. It was hard to leave that place. I know it's always hard to re-enter the real world after vacation, but Seattle holds my heart like no other place can.
I'm already plotting a return trip that will involve more hiking and kayaking and all the things I love so much about Seattle. Like coffee. And friends. And rain.
Also, I highly recommend purchasing airline tickets on a whim. It might be the best thing you do for your soul all year.
Also. Help! Has anyone found a work-around for the iPhone 4S error where you can't rotate photos once you download them on your computer? Super crazy annoying.
