Whidbey Island Getaway

Life Travel

You may have figured from Instagram that I was in Seattle over the weekend. You see, I’m turning 30 this week, so Matt took me on an adventure for fall break. We spent one night/day in the city eating our way through the incredible food scene (gluten free paradise!!!), and then we explored Whidbey Island. I’m in love with the beauty of the Pacific Northwest (I had never been…) We did some hiking and visited a few wineries, but we mostly like enjoyed relaxing and looking at the gorgeous Puget. It was amazing! I’ll leave you with the highlights:

    OMG I was so excited when I saw you where on Whidbey via IG! My bf’s family has a home on Whidbey where we spend lots of summer weekends. It’s my favorite! But I have to ask, how did you hear about it? It’s a totally awesome but unique destination for people that aren’t from the PNW.

      That’s so cool! Honestly, I found it by Googling ‘romantic fall getaways near Seattle,’ and I found the Inn at Langley. Ha!
