The boy and I traveled to Seattle for his cousin's wedding. I've never been to Seattle before, so I was very excited. But, I was also very nervous because I knew I was going to meet a lot of his family. On the day of the wedding, I got a surprise visit from - you guessed it! - the "red devil." Great, I was even more on edge. After getting all dressed up, putting on heels and lipstick, I felt much better. There's something about lookin' pretty that puts me in a better mood. I think it was the Midol that helped the most. To my surprise, everyone was very sweet and lovely! We danced and drank waaay too much beer from the open bar. But, the boy and I didn't take any photos together - besides a Snapchat filter one and another with his parents. I noticed we do that when we go to parties, too busy having fuuun, I guess! And the wedding was very lovely and stunning! Gavin and Chelsea looked like romance.
We spent the rest of our time in gorgeous Seattle being tourists.
The boy and his parents took me to this popular spot Ivar's Fish Bar, where you hold out a french fry and seagulls fly by and eat it - right out of your hand! His mom got great footage of me screaming. We took a ride on The Seattle Great Wheel and saw the Space Needle and Mt. Rainier from the top. It was a bit trippy when our cabin would rock back and forth. We also stopped by the Pike Place Market because that's what you do when you visit Seattle, obviously. There were so many people and it was a very warm day that we didn't venture around too much. But the boy did buy me a bouquet of flowers (isn't he the best?). Since we couldn't take it with us on our trip to Vancouver, we surprised his mom with them (and See's Candy too!) for her birthday. The gum wall alley was pretty cool and very hipster-touristy. PS. It was pretty gross.
When I ask the boy to take pictures of me, this is what he captures. Sometimes, I get upset because he doesn't take photos exactly how I like it. Also, I suddenly get very shy when he's behind the camera, aiming it at me. However, he reminds me to be myself, that it's okay to be silly and fun in my photos and to not take it too seriously. I love him for that. I'm still going to teach him my "angles" and aesthetics.
We actually did a lot during our time in Seattle. I almost forgot that our first night there, his sweet Omama treated us out for dinner. We ate at this lovely restaurant (I can't remember the name, sorry!) where the service and food were beyond excellent! It was a nice intimate setting.
I'm going to share the rest of our trip in an up coming post. Come back to read our adventure and see photos of the Fremont Troll, Snoqualmie Falls, and how terrified I was at the top of the newly renovated (but still in construction) Space Needle.
Peace out, loves!
