My new house is in Wallingford, a nice little neighborhood to the west of UW and the apparent home of one Dave Matthews. The main drag is a fantastic stretch of coffee shops, pubs, restaurants and weirdo little shops. Not to mention one location of a local favourite, Molly Moon's. I tried their Salted Caramel ice cream and I am telling you, it was a fantastic experience, like being given permission to caramelize a stick of salted butter and eat it with a spoon.
Fall has also decidedly started its descent upon the city. The sun has begun to set a little earlier and the misty days are a shade colder than they were before. But today it is a balmy 75 in Seattle- perfect for sitting on my new porch with an iced americano and a book.
In case you are not aware of the fact, I LOVE fall. It is absolutely my most favourite season of all time. Back-to-school fever (even though this is my first year not actually attending school), apples, pears, cider, golden sunlight, ruby leaves, the smell of fires, savoury dishes, sweaters and a dash of nutmeg in my coffee are all things that bring a little extra joy to my days. I am looking forward to sharing this wonderful season in this great new location with all of you.
Happy Labour Day weekend to everyone and as a final send off, I give you this picture of a mural in Wallingford:
