This blog began in 2010 as part of the publisher’s promotional materials for my travel book, The Single Girl’s Guide to Meeting European Men. The book rose to #1 on Amazon’s Best-Sellers List within two weeks of publication, and is still selling. The blog has been expanded to cover my other pursuits.

Pike Place, the longest running farmer’s market in the USA, was founded in 1927. Unique stalls, shops and restaurants cover three floors and the other side of the cobblestone street. Fresh-cut flowers abound from spring until fall.

Pikes Market A

Turkish Delight, a Market mainstay, is owned by the family of Denise, the beautiful supporting actress in my music video, But I Do.

Pikes Market E

Celebrities such as Ian Somerhalder (Vampire Diaries, Lost) come there not just to enjoy a favorite meal – in his case, Chicken Kabob – but to take in the stunning view that spans sunset, sunrise, and Puget Sound…

…and pick up a bouquet of those fabulous flowers for a special someone.
