The Weaver House

I love when you're wandering the labyrinth of the web and you end up somewhere beautiful and unexpected. The Weaver House site was a random find, but these Portland sisters have a great eye for taking dreamy photos and finding vintage pieces.

This collection of 1960s View-Master reels comes from Alex's family in Mankato.


Table for Two: Lake Avenue

Alex and I recently took a quick trip up to Duluth to enjoy the fall colors and do some relaxing. We tend to focus on food when we travel so we made the effort to get to some good restaurants. The first one we tried was Lake Avenue Restaurant and Bar, recommended by my good friend, Terry, a Duluthian and fellow food lover. We shared the Chorizo Stuffed Dates and they were amazing. I had the Salted Cod Gnocchi which was topped with a little apple butter, of all things. That was a fun, unexpected flavor pairing that added a sweetness and made it taste really fall-y. Alex had the Deconstructed Fish and Chips, which was a nice take on the classic. Instead of dessert, we opted for the Caprese Eclair, a puff pastry-wrapped and baked caprese salad. It was all really good.

The other two restaurants we went to were New Scenic Cafe and Fitger's Brewhouse. I highly recommend both- NSC for everything on their menu and Fitger's for the beer (obviously) and the wild rice burger.
