Exploring Seattle + Vancouver – Baby’s First Adventure

An adventure to Seattle and Vancouver, breathing life in to August’s first week of existence.

I met my best friend Evan while studying Human Services and International Affairs at Northeastern University. This tall, gangly, hip and fresh boy walked into my life and made it 800x better, when it was seeming to be falling apart. All that to say, he now is an ocean away, but for a summer his sweet little brit hubby, Kyle, was in the US to study. Kyle and I planned an end of summer getaway to Seattle + Vancouver, to explore and refresh. This week also happened to be the first week of my pregnancy with August. Sounds to me like this makes August a born adventurer! This week marks August’s 9th month out of the womb, the same amount of time he spent in – so I am finally showing off this journey to you all.

I am obsessed with Vancouver after this journey. I had no idea what beauty was in this little rainforest pocket of the world. Photos are the best way to express what joy this place brought. Kyle, I am so grateful for you, and all of the energy you put into planning this trip with me <3
