I'm IT again!

Got tagged by The Relentless Bride so here goes...

List 5 reasons you love your state:
I live in Washington, however I'm just gonna stay within Seattle since I just adore this city.

1. All the delish restaurants scattered all over city. We love to explore and find those unknown restaurants that only true "foodies" know about. When we find them, I feel like we belong in a secret club.

And of course the Seattle staples...
One of our favorite Saturday morning hangouts, Top Pot Doughnuts
Cinammon Blueberry

2. The amazing architecture, like the Seattle Public Library.

Where you can find red rooms, yellow escalators and crazy beautiful textures.

3. The various parks all over the city. Each one just as beautiful.

And how dog friendly they all are.

4. If you want to see a body of water, you don't have to drive far. In any direction.

Golden Gardens

5. Last but not least is the reason most people come to Seattle... Pike Place Market. I work only a few steps away but I never tire of it. I adore going there for lunch and for walks after work. The tourists can get to me but you can't really blame them. There is a lot to oooh and aaah over.

The amazing restaurants, the fresh fruit, the variety of foods at every corner, the trinket shopping, the maze of the market that you can easily get lost in, the fish throwing, the bakeries, Post Alley! Too much to list but every single part of it makes Seattle what it is.

So what are you waiting for you? You want to visit Seattle now don't you?

*If I could add #6 it would be the flagship Nordstrom store. If I ever move away from Seattle I will miss it so dearly!
