While I do love summer, the transition to fall brings a new set of things to look forward to. This fall I'm all about (hot) matcha green tea lattes and a new pair of booties (see photos). Every fall I welcome the changing leaves, soft scarves, and frequent festival weekends. Just two weeks after the San Gennaro Festival, Seattle welcomes the Festa Italiana.
My protocol for festivals is as follows:
This weekend we visited Seattle's San Gennaro festival for the second consecutive year. The festival, in honor of Saint Gennaro, is held in the neighborhood of Georgetown and celebrates all things Italian: food, music, wine, and shopping. Our friends Jay and Michelle joined us this year and we enjoyed the props and selfie booth immensely!
Summer has always been my favorite season. As a kid it's a celebration of warm months free from school or bedtimes. As an adult the weather is still stellar, especially in Seattle. It doesn't get too hot here in the Pacific Northwest and the daylight is never ending. The difference, as a "grown up," is the lightheartedness that creeps into the office on Fridays. Some days it begins earlier than others and Friday of this past week was one of those lovely days.
The Bite of Seattle kicked off Friday at Seattle Center so a lunchtime adventure was a requirement. I treated myself to a large waffle cone of chocolate & vanilla twist with rainbow jimmies! Who says kids have all of the fun?
