<3 Elmwood Avenue
It looks like I’ll be going to the States this July! It’s been too long since I last went, for a while I was going every year, but now I haven’t been there since the summer of 2008. Wow, has it really been that long?
It’s so important to have things to look forward to in life, it’s motivation. I have been lacking things to look forward to for a long time now, so I’m happy I have this trip that I can remind myself of whenever I’m feeling a little down. Just thinking about being able to go to Elmwood Avenue (and especially SPoT coffee!!!) is making me smile.
Elmwood is my favorite place to go in Buffalo (where my grandparents live), it’s this artistic and funky area that I guess you could say is the equivalent to our “Söder” in Stockholm. There isn’t much on the street, but the funny stores, the happy vibe of the people working at SPoT and the colorful buildings keep my eyes, mind and soul saturated for hours!
SPoT coffee is a special favorite of mine, I make a handful of pitstops there for coffee or chai lattes during my visits. It’s such a fun place, it’s decorated with colorful doodles everywhere (the menu is a real piece of art!) and the people that work there are happy and dance around while making your order.
What are you looking forward to right now?
