Seattle Adventures

My friends and I were able to cross off a few things from our summer list this evening as we ventured the streets of Seattle! Had a yummy dinner at the Melting Pot (one of our favorites) and took some pictures at Kerry Park! The weather was perfect! Not too hot, not too cold, just right! I had a fun time catching up and having the random conversations that we all used to have together before college life. It was just like old times! The restaurant called for business casual attire so we all decided on either skirts or dresses! For today's post I created similar outfits to the ones we wore out to dinner. I've also attached a few photos from our adventures today. Exploring the city today just made me fall more in love with Seattle. I love living here!

A picture I took at Kerry Park! It's absolutely beautiful there.

Easily the best part of our experience at the Melting Pot. The dessert was delicious!
