Ooooeeeee it's Friday night, the sun is setting, Baby Glitter is tucked up in bed and the TV is babbling on in the background. The perfect time to blog.
This week I have been 100% at home, with no travelling or big London days. It's been glorious. I have focused a lot of my energy into editing and uploading what I have lovingly dubbed, 'The Seattle Series', onto my second YouTube channel, Sprinkle of Chatter. You can watch that series HERE. It is 45 minutes all the way through, or you can watch 7 bite size daily chunks.
I also spent a blissful few hours editing the photographs we took out there. For those that are interested, I use a Canon EOS 70D camera body and for this trip we took a Canon EF 40MM f/2.8 STM lens. We went with that option because it's the most compact, so great for throwing the camera in your hand bag or baby change bag (like I do because I love keeping everything together). The only downside was that there is no zoom so you have to stand quite far back from things to get everything in frame. Little bit of tech chat for you there haha!
Since Seattle is so beautiful and there was so much to snap, I'm going to break the photos down into a three or four posts so you aren't overloaded in one go.

Trundling round downtown Seattle and chatting about nothingness was bliss.

Once the window washers spotted us we were gifted with quite the acrobatic show!
The famous Pike Place market. Home of the first ever Starbucks and where parts of one of our favourite films, Sleepless in Seattle, was shot. We got really excited about that last part haha.

The best bagels in town.
If you're a total smartypants you'll know which part of the vlogs this photo is from.
Watching gross fish be thrown about with the babelings.
Admiring the flowers. I could have photographed them all day.
Fitting crowns on princesses.
It's blurry but I love it. I was so, so, so happy in that moment. I wish I could time machine back over and over.
Admiring their apparel.
I love cities.
Especially cities with snow capped mountains on the horizon.
Ahhhhh gawwddd I love this city so much. I love all cities being such a city-girl but this one was special. It was clean, spacious, interesting and friendly.
We can't wait to return.
Up next, Kerry Park, family love and incredible skylines. Be still my beating heart.
Are you a city, country or suburban gal?
