Starbucks, Dave Matthews and Rain- am I in Seattle??


Very drizzly morning here in Albany. I picked up a latte at Starbucks and was headed home when Dave Matthews came on the radio. Nostalgia!! Funny thing about Starbucks: I have never really liked Starbucks coffee but it was everywhere and was the expected coffee/social destination. Having moved here, I love Starbucks now- simply for giving me a little Seattle in the morning! When I tell people that I moved here from Seattle, the response is always the same: "I thought everyone wanted to live in Seattle- why'd you move here?!?" Seattle really is a fantastic city! BUT, there has to be a reason why people choose to live in Albany too! And lucky me, I have 4 years to figure out why that is!! HA! In all fairness, Albany does have a lot to offer. Being so centrally located, you can get to so many cool places in a short amount of time. There are so many awesome options for day trips that you can almost waste your time trying to decide where to go- Montreal, Vermont, NYC, Boston, Adirondacks, Lake George, Saratoga... endless possibilities! So what are you waiting for?? Come on over!!

Maybe you'll start liking dessert while you're there, too! One can only hope.

Ironic that it's finally sunny and hot here again. Maybe today would be a good day to stay inside and start working on your Seattle-inspired cookbook we've all been waiting for...
