Simply Traveling: Seattle Sweets

Happy Friday everyone!

I decided to do a fun twist on Friday Letters, Seattle sweets-themed!

Dear Top Pot Doughnuts, how we managed to have you 3 days out of 7 is remarkable. I'm still dreaming of those chunky pieces of sea salt on my old fashioned... (Don't worry, my family is still working on that dozen I brought home as a carry-on 😉 )

Dear Seattle Chocolates I bought on impulse at the airport, you are the ONLY souvenir I deeply regret not buying more of. Take it from me people, if you get your hands on a bag of these, buy it and don't blink twice. Don't regret it like I do, it will haunt you...

Dear Trophy Cupcakes, I fell in love with all your beautiful cupcakes and color scheme! I was told your Pumpkin Cupcake was deliciously rich (right Eva?) and I can vouch for the Salted Caramel cupcake as being pretty tasty. I wasn't going to leave Seattle without a cupcake people! {Thanks for letting us use your giftcard Alix!}

Dear Seattle Fudge, I was skeptical of your goodness because I bought you in the gift shop of the Space Needle. But when I saw the Sea Salt Caramel flavor (notice a trend?), I had to have you. Even for $9. YUM. You won't be disappointed. And yea, I didn't get to snap a picture because it went THAT fast.

Dear Claudia and Yen, I'm SO happy I got to meet you lovely ladies while I was in Seattle!

Claudia and I only met this month, upon me being her blog angel and I swear it's fate we were paired together the same month I vacationed in Seattle. She carved out a little coffee break for me, with her sweet boy Isaiah being in the hospital and I even got to meet him! He is so full of joy and I truly admire Claudia's strength and ability to even make me laugh that morning. (Wish we would've snapped a photo girl!)

Yen and I met via Melissa and her encouraging comments on my Let's Get Physical October post. We instantly became blog friends and I love all her amazing recipes! It was just like meeting an old friend, our conversation was so easy and I learned so much about her! We were both so overjoyed we were able to meet and she gave me these DELISH s'mores cookies (which is my final Seattle Sweet)!

  2. Gah! I'm just getting around to catching up on my fave blogs and saw this. I thought the same thing about the photo! Still, I'm so glad we got to get together. Your amazing care package (and that card... oh my!) had me in tears after you left. Thank you, thank you, thank you for the support and kindness. It was an act I'll never forget, and I won't let Isaiah forget it either. 🙂 So glad you had a fun time in Seattle, despite the weather, and that you seem to have fallen in love with Pike Place Market as much as I have. Weren't the flowers incredible? I got all of my wedding flowers there for a song.
