Unique Seattle Hotels

by Beth Whitman (October 25th, 2013)

I’m usually ready for a staycation around this time of year. I’m yearning to unplug but not go too far away from home. I want someplace where I can relax but I don’t want to get stressed about all the packing that comes with a getaway that’s longer than a weekend or far from home. […]

Photo of the Day ~ Seattle Sunset

by Beth Whitman (September 13th, 2013)

I traveled A LOT earlier this year, having been abroad for most of March – May and then running domestic tours in June. I therefore made a conscious decision to stick around Seattle for the summer (and the fall, too). I lucked out because this summer we had the most amazing weather, better than we’ve […]

Diane’s Market Kitchen ~ Seattle Culinary Tour

by Beth Whitman (July 12th, 2013)

As part of our Seattle Culinary Tour, we had a cooking class/demonstration at Diane’s Market Kitchen. What a hoot! The class is about so much more than the food as Diane is one spunky lady with wonderful stories to tell and great life lessons to teach. (Take her class and you’ll see for yourself.) The […]

What I Learned on the Seattle Culinary Tour

by Beth Whitman (July 2nd, 2013)

I joke that having grown up with three brothers, running women-only tours is like being around a group of sisters I never had. And there’s always something fun to learn from them (like what a muffin top is and what Spanx are – seriously things I learned about recently from my tour peeps). On this […]

Staycation ~ Salish Lodge

by Beth Whitman (December 21st, 2012)

I can remember a time, not quite 20 years ago, when I had just returned from a trip and was looking for work in Seattle. I had registered with a bunch of temp agencies while I waited for something more concrete to show up. I sat on my living room floor, playing solitaire and waited […]

Hotel Holiday Happy Hours in Seattle

by Beth Whitman (December 1st, 2012)

The holiday season is fast approaching (actually, much to my chagrin, it’s here) and many people are looking for a place to celebrate and share some cheer with friends, family and coworkers. Around this time of year, I look for happy hours where I can gather with a small group. I have found that often, […]

Summer (Seattle) Lovin’ – Photo of the Day

by Beth Whitman (July 28th, 2011)

I’ve been a bit grumpy these past couple of months. I love Seattle. But there’s a caveat. I love Seattle more when we have beautiful summers. It’s what makes the 9 dreary months of the year worth enduring. These past 2 summers, however, have been pretty cool and rainy. Recently, I’ve even been tempted to […]

Sunflower in Seattle – Photo of the Day

by Beth Whitman (May 19th, 2011)

Could it possibly be that summer has finally arrived? We’re cautiously optimistic here in Seattle – where a record amount of rain has been falling. But you know what they say, April (and in our case May) showers, bring August flowers. I have sunflowers to look forward to this year! See other lovely photos at […]

Moonstruck – Photo of the Day

by Beth Whitman (May 12th, 2011)

This was not the recent Super Moon, but it was a big ole full moon in Seattle. From our home, we have an amazing view of the Cascades and it’s behind this mountain range from which the sun rises and, often, the moon. And since I’m sticking close to home this month, I thought I’d […]
