I haven’t lived in Seattle for long, but since moving here I have felt so blessed to live in such a beautiful state. Every year in Skagit Valley, WA they grow row upon row of the prettiest tulips and daffodils you’ve ever seen, thus marking the beginning of the Tulip Festival. Last year I missed the glorious sight by a week as the flowers bloomed and were cut down earlier than usual. I didn't make that mistake this year and it was just as beautiful as I had imagined it would be. It's about an hour drive from downtown Seattle and lasts until April 30th. If you have the time I'd highly suggest making the trip. Wear a pretty dress, dance through the flowers and have someone take photos of you to remember the moment; I promise it'll be worth your while.
