Right before our lives were overtaken with packing, boxes, and moving CK and I took a short jaunt to one of our favorite locations (Burlington, Vermont) and stayed at our absolute favorite Bed & Breakfast, the Willard Street Inn. This heralded and well-loved status was earned by these locations during a winter excursion several years […]

Top Pot Doughnuts

November 9, 2008

It’s been a week now since we returned from Seattle and CK and I are still reminiscing about the the doughnuts at Top Pot Doughnuts.

On the way back to our hotel from Bainbridge Island, CK and I stopped by The Bookstore Bar located next door to the Alexis Hotel (Note to Self: next time we’re totally staying there). Honestly I’d had this spot on my radar since we began planning our trip to Seattle, and I eyed it for […]

Original Sur La Table

November 2, 2008

The flight to Seattle got in at 10:30 PM west coast time. After arriving at our hotel and admiring the view briefly we tumbled into bed and woke up at the unacceptable time of 6:30 AM. Which technically was quite a bit later as our bodies were definitely still tuned into east coast time. I […]

Erin in Seattle

October 16, 2008

CK and I will be spending a week in Seattle at the end of the month. I can’t even begin to express how excited I am about this trip. Truth be told I’ve never been to the West Coast so I’m hoping that you’ll have some fabulous suggestions for our Fall excursion. So clue me […]
