How long have you lived in Green Lake?
Just a few months! My husband, 16-month-old daughter and I relocated to Seattle from Cleveland earlier this year, and were so lucky to find an adorable home close to Green Lake. We absolutely love the neighborhood and community so far.

What’s your favorite thing about living here?
The lake, of course! We’re there pretty much every day, taking our daughter to the playground, or going for a jog around the lake, or taking our dinner to the park for a picnic and people watching. We also recently discovered the fenced dog park, which our Shar Pei mix Tucker loves.

You’re a runner. What do you listen to when you are jogging around Green Lake?
My favorite running music is Girl Talk! It’s super upbeat and fun, which keeps me moving in that last mile.

Can you share any hidden gems that you’ve found in the Green Lake area?
We’re still new to the neighborhood, so we’ve loved just getting to know the tried and true favorites! We adore Duke’s for a quick bowl of chowder and Mockingbird Books for their great kids’ books and daily 11 am storytime. I’ve also recently become completely obsessed with PCC’s prepared foods, specifically the smoked mozzarella pasta salad.
