Over Memorial Day Weekend, I took a little adventure up to the Skagit Valley with my mom, where we discovered the most adorable little town of Edison, WA. With a tiny drizzle overhead and cyclists gearing up for a day of riding, we arrived just as the town was waking. After snapping a few photographs, we wondered into Breadfarm, a gourmet artisan bakery I have been hearing about. We loaded up our totes with delicious cookies and breads, but wanted to keep exploring. To our surprise, Tweets, just a couple doors down, was brewing up some amazing fair trade espresso and cooking up local, organic, farm fresh dishes, just my kind of place. Mom had the Breakfast Tostada with chorizo and I had the Polenta Torte with goat cheese. The café was hopping with local artists, vintage shoppers and country folk, all who were enjoying a relaxed country atmosphere. After breakfast, the sun came out and we wondered next door into the Edison Gallery, where we discovered some outstanding charcoal drawings by the local students. Joel Brock, an artist and resident who helped lead the exhibit, showed us around his studio next door, as mom and I both contemplated a life of art making in a quaint town. We stumbled across the street to a vintage shop, The Lucky Dumpster, and later met Todd Horton while viewing his paintings at the Smith & Vallee Gallery. To say the least, it was well worth the trip and we can’t wait to go back next weekend.

We made our way through the valley and over to Washington Park in Anacortes, WA where mom lives.
