“My niece is badass,” Bekah wrote on Instagram. “I, however, am not. I’m loving how much she’s loving her trip to the Emerald City to visit her Auntie. 💙 Also, how rad is the remodel on the Space Needle?”

No worries, Bekah — you’re already miles ahead of us. We’re…still trying to work up the nerve to get ourselves up there. 😬

Have you visited the Space Needle since its glassy makeover? Be sure to tag us in your pics by using #theevergrey hashtag.

Now let’s help you make some plans…
