After being at school and away from home for six weeks, I was so ready for a much needed weekend trip back home in Seattle and it was so much fun. It was probably one of the best weekends I have had in a while. Being such a short trip, it went way too fast and I am missing home already.
After a night of traveling, the next day could not have been more perfect. As a late Valentine’s Day and anniversary celebration, my boyfriend planned the best surprise for us to spend the day together and celebrate.
The first thing planned was to go to the top of the Space Needle in downtown Seattle. As a Seattleite, you’d think I have been to the Space Needle before, but I have not! As my boyfriend knew that, he surprised me by taking me there and spending time on the observation deck for some great views. It was so much fun and I loved finally being able to go there, even on a rainy, typical Seattle kind of day.
After visiting the Space Needle for a few hours, it was time for surprise number two, a visit to Discovery Park. As my boyfriend also knew that I hadn’t been to Discovery Park either, he surprised me by taking me there as well! I loved it. It was a total pacific northwest kind of beach and it was so fun to walk around the beach area and look at the cute, old lighthouse. Despite the fact that it was totally freezing and a rainy and windy day, it was totally worth the visit.
When we were ready to leave after hanging out at Discovery Park, my boyfriend surprised me by taking me out to dinner at one of my favorite Italian restaurants, Maggiano’s (Little Italy) in downtown Bellevue. It was the best. We both enjoyed our pasta’s and fancy dinner to celebrate Valentine’s Day and our anniversary together.
To finish off our perfect day together, there was one surprise left for me. My boyfriend rented out his apartment’s movie theater for the two of us that night to watch some of my favorite movies and eat some of my favorite snacks. The day could not have ended any better. It was perfect.
We spent the next day on Whidbey Island, visiting with family and celebrating my grandpa’s birthday. I always have a great time visiting Whidbey Island and love riding the ferry boat over and back.
It was sad to have left after one of the most perfect weekend’s and I cannot wait to come back home again soon.
