An unforgettable weekend in Seattle

August 27, 2014

This past weekend, August 22-25, Nathan and I jumped on a plane and made the trek across America to Seattle, Washington.  We had been invited to the wedding of a good friend of mine and it was the perfect excuse to get away from DC for a short “babymoon!” Originally we really weren’t sure we were going to be able to pull it off.  Flights were ridiculously expensive (around $600…
