More urban foraging! I just discovered the blueberries at Denali Montessori School, bordering 9th Ave. Between the strawberries at the museum, the blueberries at Denali, and the salmon in ship creek, my husband (or bears!) could almost create his favorite dinner. Not all harvested at the same time, of course – the few fish I saw at the hatchery the other day were starting to look a little bedraggled… but the blueberries look great!
So beautiful up there, looking down on our city, and across the inlet to Sleeping Lady.
I cut my hair!

When I lived in Washington, D.C. I fell in love with mixed use design. Neighborhoods where people lived above or adjacent to businesses were consistently vibrant – there was always something going on, a buzz of activity and community. It seemed like so much fun to live above a restaurant or shop, to just run down the stairs for a coffee or pop down the street to your neighborhood bar.
I am so in love with this doorway.
It looks solid yet glamorous, and I think the straight lines softened by curves, round lights, and the warmth of the wood is such an appealing combo.
Isn’t this window beautiful?
I spotted it at Crow Creek Mine while celebrating the marriage of a dear friend.
You know how sometimes you plan something your whole life, and then it doesn’t turn out the way you thought it would, but ends up being better than you imagined?
One of the best surprises of my summer was that the park at the museum was landscaped with strawberries. Urban foragers rejoice! The berries are everywhere (but are very small). I’m not sure why this pleases me so much, but every time I walk by, I smile.
Do you have a restaurant for special celebrations? The place you go for birthdays, anniversaries, goals achieved, or just because you want to bask in the glow of good times past during a great tasting meal?
