Field Trip: Q-Laundry


So I have found you a place for a Valentine's date if you need one. It's a laundromat. Yes, I know but bear with me. I mean first of all look at that seating area. It's warm, rugged, and so Northwest. And second of all, it's romantic on so many levels. Let me explain.

Maybe I should set the scene as to how a person with a lovely cherry red front loader washer & dryer ended up there. Our washer had been acting up for a while, then finally gave up the ghost. While the husband worked on it I decided to take all our laundry to this shiny new laundromat in town. Maybe the next photo explains a few things. 




Gross, right. But did you see the upper text? Oh, that was just a text from the washing machine at the laundromat! Yes, the washing machine! So amazing. The tagline for Q Landry, is "The Laundromat for Busy People." So you get a text when your wash is about to finish, and then again when it does. There is even a bank of machines that go from wash to dry. And don't even get me started on the t-shirt folders they have available. Let's just say our youngest daughter may have a job waiting for her at the Gap. 




Oh yes. Then there is the detergent bar, full of range of lovely detergents such as Calendrea and even their own blends. You can buy a card so that you don't have to worry about coins. And there is even free wi-fi. Two thumbs up from all of us. 


All this doesn't answer why this would be a great place for a Valentine's date. Think of it. Grab a couple mochas, a sleeping bag or some large comforter that could use a wash and head back in time to the days when you lived in an apartment. When you were maybe scraping by, maybe eating ramen or mac & cheese more often than you would like to admit. And remind yourselves just how far you have come, how many storms you have weathered. I love flowers and chocolates just like any other girl. But I really like a good love story. And ours could use a re-telling. And I know a place…

You can find all the details here. Q Laundry (p.s. This wasn't a sponsored post. I just really like this place. Like a lot. )
