Snapshots Of Summer

There is just something about summer.  The longer days, endless outdoor activities, family vacations, alfresco dinners, and sun kissed skin are the perfect recipe for a magical season filled with memories that last a lifetime.

Isla & I spent most of July visiting my family and friends in WA state.  Even though I grew up there, I had forgotten how truly glorious the Pacific Northwest is during summer.  Crisp and cool mornings, surprisingly pleasant daytime temps (opposite of humid AF Miami!), farmers market produce runs, salty sea air, drives into the mountains (our Florida girl saw snow for the first time!), berry picking, wine on the back patio with my mama, lake days at our cabin, and family time galore was exactly what I needed to bring myself out of this funk that I've been in lately, and get my mind into a much better space.

Since I'm still on an instagram break, here's a few snapshots of how our July played out.  

If you're planning a visit to Seattle, here's a list of toddler friendly activities that we enjoyed:

Woodland Park Zoo
International Fountain Seattle Center
Artists At Play Playground Seattle Center
Seattle Aquarium
Seattle Great Wheel (ferris wheel)
Pike Place Market
Seattle Children's Museum
Boating on Lake Washington
JuzPlayKids Indoor Playground (a Blippi approved playground!)

I hope you're all doing well & soaking up every moment of summer. xoxo



  1. So happy to see a post from you! Glad you are enjoying your summer. We are in CA and Seattle is so close, but I always wondered about taking the littles. Looks like a great time!!

    1. Hi Crystal! It's a relatively short flight for you, and a completely different vibe from CA! Everyone I know who has visited Seattle always ends up falling in love with the city. Hope you give it a go sometime. Thanks for taking the time to comment xx

  2. So glad you're back! Your trip back home looks amazing. Hope you and your sweet family are doing well. Miss your fashion and hope inso posts :) :) xoxo.

  3. I knew I loved you! I’m from Washington too (Gig Harbor). I’ve spent at least 7-8 weekends in WA this summer, there is really NO place like the Pacific Northwest in summer.

    Isla has gotten so big, she looks like a “big girl” now!

    1. Hahah! Gotta love my WA peeps :) I totally agree - PNW summers are the absolute best!
