Seattle’s greatness was magnified since the weather was damn near perfect [aka sunny and 75-80 degrees with a little sunburn to prove it]. I’ve been to the city a number of times but to see it by way of Amerivespa was a whole new experience. We spent a couple meals at Thai Tom since we were staying in the University District and fell in love with a new-to-us Mexican food place in the Georgetown neighborhood called Fonda La Catrina. Holy hell that was unbelievably good. We sat at the bar, watching the magic happen while I happily shoveled enchiladas verdes in my mouth and washed it down with a paloma. They’re doing good things here. It’s out of the way from the normal Seattle action, but it’s absolutely worth it.
Next year’s Amerivespa is in Richmond, VA. Color me tempted.
I tried the pizza at the newly opened The Crown. The verdict = solid. Nice to have more pizza in the lunch rotation.

Tracy is so good at breaking down how to create healthy eating habits. Because they’re just that—habits.
I want this kitchen island. How practical is it if we didn’t have a kitchen table anymore? Think of all that storage.
This Spotify playlist is based on all the small font bands that end up on these festival posters. So far so good.
