Roadtrip: Bellingham

Hello again internet! It's been a long time and I apologize for that. I recently lost someone very, very important to me and so I have been spending these last few months reflecting on different aspects of my life like who I am and want to be. When my birthday rolled around at the beginning of March, I decided to have a little get away by myself. I am someone who really appreciates my alone time and so a weekend trip down to my family's place in Birch Bay, Washington helped ring in my 25th birthday. I am a creature of habit and tend to do the same things over and over, like eating the same things or visiting the same places so I decided that this trip would be a chance to see some parts of Bellingham that I haven't seen before and all that I can say is that it is BEAUTIFUL!
I went to the Fairhaven Area of Bellingham which is the historic district of the city. It is beautiful, the buildings are brick and sturdy but have been reclaimed by local stores and companies. Village Books is famous for this area, is it a gorgeous book store with three levels and so much personality.
I am a huge fan of sweets and candy, my favourites being salty black licorice and I couldn't pass up going in to Papa's sweets - I left with lots of licorice and delicious salt water taffy, I posted a picture of the flavours I picked up on my instagram
Tony's Coffee is another staple in Fairhaven and the coffee is delicious - something you can not miss!
Buildings like these are all over Fairhaven and I love the look
I couldn't have asked for a nicer day to explore the city. Since Bellingham is also a port town, there was a beautiful seawall where you could pretend the yacht's belonged to you  
Fat Pie Pizza was by far the best pizza I have ever had! The taste is so fresh and the service is great - plus there is a donut and ice cream place next door so that is always an extra bonus ;-)
This building was my favourite by far - someone had shaped the vines on the side of the building to make a beautiful heart.
I finished my day back on the beach in Birch Bay to watch the sun to go down and to think about my Oma who passed away a few weeks before. I miss her everyday and sitting on the beach reflecting made me feel closer to her than I had since she was gone.

Thank you everyone for letting me share! I will be back posting regularly and have new projects coming soon!

stay clumsy
