I’m kicking off two weeks of vacation-centric posts right now. Last week I spent 8 days in the Pacific Northwest traveling through Tacoma, Seattle, and Portland. It was so refreshing to unplug from real life and take a few days off of work to eat some seriously great food, read a book, watch oodles of Netflix, and enjoy the amazing weather. I stayed with one of my oldest friends at her sweet studio in Tacoma so that’s where I’ll kick off my narrative. Tacoma is a city with a smalltown feel. The streets are full of great restaurants, mom-and-pop shops, and some really beautiful buildings. I could easily see myself living there someday. The fresh flowers were incredible!!! Check back tomorrow for the guide to Tacoma food!!
