In a recent Dazzling Dress blog post we commented on the news that Pantone announced the 2013 Color of the Year as emerald green. So, this week we carry the theme to our Mini-Moon post and celebrate the Emerald City, or Seattle. One of our favorite places in this vibrant city is Pike Place Market. Our featured accommodations this week calls this bustling destination of fish and farmers’ fare home sweet home.

If you see the sweet critter who is a fixture on the sofa or under the lobby’s reception desk, don’t hesitate to say a gentle “hello.” This is THEO, the owner’s shy Cavalier King Charles spaniel, who joined the family in July 2009. He’ll greet you, plus keep a watchful eye on your luggage!
