First Post in 2011 – We Bought a House!
How time flies! I suppose the biggest news in our lives is that we recently bought a house (more pictures posted soon, we promise). It’s a lovely 1925 Bungalow in the Phinney Ridge neighborhood, roughly 5 miles north of downtown Seattle. While we will miss the hustle & bustle of the city, we are quickly (and quite happily) getting used to the down-tempo-city-neighborhood feel. I suppose it just fits our lifestyle a little better.
Fortunately there are some really great spots within walking distance of our front door. These smaller venues give off a more local feel as opposed to the corporate chains & tourist spots that are more prevalent in the downtown area. Another perk, the prices are much more reasonable which means we can save up for that kitchen remodel we’re planning later this year – woot woot!
Our new place is also close to a fantastic little gem that is Green Lake. There is a 3-mile loop around this lake with really beautiful views of the water. The path is lined with classic Seattle homes residing in the adjoining neighborhoods, including Green Lake, Wallingford and our very own Phinney Ridge. Plus there are nice little restaurants, cafe and pubs along the way providing much needed “nourishment” during our “exercise” outings.
This morning I received an email from a co-worker which merely read “wow” followed by a link. I thought our readers might find a little humor in this short newsclip!
