I’ve never been to the state before so when news of my brother’s upcoming nuptials came, we jumped at the chance to extend the trip by a few days on either side of the “I dos” to explore Seattle. As always, if you have any travel recommendations, I’d love to hear ’em! I’ll be sharing snapshots from our adventure on Instagram and will be back here on the blog on Wednesday.
