happy halloween, dudes.

Happy Halloween, you ghouls and goblins!

Here's an appropriately spooky song sure to set the mood.

"I'm a Z-O-M-BIE, zombie!"

snaps from seattle

I just returned from a work trip to Seattle. At first, I was filled with dread at being gone over the weekend, but after getting a taste of the city, I felt really fortunate to have the chance to see it.

We stayed downtown at the Edgewater (famous for this photo) where we had fireplaces in our rooms and killer waterfront views.

The city is beautiful and wonderfully romantic this time of year. S and I are already planning a return trip.

Here are a few of my most touristy snaps:

 Pike's Market where we wandered under...

neon signage,

 browsed the famous fish market (get a load of those crabs!)

and even saw some burly gentlemen toss a few of these guys around. 

I fell in love with the bounty of fresh flowers  available for ridiculous prices (that bouquet is only $5!?). We also ate fresh chocolate covered cherries...a Washington state staple.

watercolor prints

These watercolor prints from Amber Alexander's Etsy shop are my current jam.

Her soft and whimsical creations are invited to take up residence on a blank wall in our bedroom anytime. At only $20 a pop, they are quite the steal.

Isn't the subdued palette serene? Just lovely...
