Hi there!

Hi! Welcome to my corner of the internet. I'm a 26 year old therapist, feminist, photographer, and shop owner currently living in Seattle, Washington. My shop, Dealign with Feelings, is geared toward destigmatizing and normalizing mental health. I'm biased, but I think we have some pretty cute stuff :) Click the "shop" tab to see what we've got! I mainly post about my travel and daily life on here. With other random musings thrown in. I post more frequently (and about more feminism) on my Instagram @emmycoletti, so make sure you're following me there. Thanks for stopping by!

An Entire Post Dedicated To Food

Are you surprised? I am not. Food is so good. I literally can't even imagine how people could not be "foodies". You know? Those people who are just like, "Oh, I just eat whatever. It doesn't matter." LIKE HOW CAN IT NOT MATTER. IT MATTERS SO MUCH.

UGH. The struggle. Anyway, here are a bunch of pictures of food that have been sitting on my computer. First up, Cubby's. The only reason I know of Cubby's is because my mom is obsessed with their salad bowls and made me go with her to this creepy warehouse to look for them. We drove 45 minutes up to Salt Lake to get to the store. We were literally in there for like an hour and a half and we didn't even find the bowls. (Turns out she found them later, on another outing to the store.)

SO. That was my introduction to Cubby's. It makes people obsessed with their salad bowls lol.

I honestly can't remember much about the first time we went other than eating allllll the fries. They have rosemary on them and are seriously so delicious. They were much like the fries we got at Eva's for my birthday dinner two years ago, except much closer than Salt Lake. I would go there for the fries alone.

I made some raspberry sticky buns that were delicious!! I accidentally rolled the log the wrong way, haha. But, they still turned out pretty well. 

We went back to Cubby's literally the next weekend. We both got salads in the much-talked-about salad bowls. SO GOOD. It's been ages since I've gotten a salad somewhere haha. Also, this time we tried the sweet potato fries that were ALSO VERY GOOD. I'm a fry person, what can I say.

This is the scone from Normandie's with a chai tea latte (buy caffeine-free Oregon Chai and mix it with equal parts milk and you're ready to go)! Best combination and best breakfast! You really must try one of their scones if you haven't already. Your life will change forever.

Pudding! My mom had doilies? So that was weird but made it v cute. Also, if you can tell me where that red tray is from then you win. (Hint: It's from a food place, not a store.)

Lastly, Gandolfo's! After my niece was born I ran over to grab a sandwich for my brother-in-law. My mom and I ate there too. I'm pretty sure the employee thought I just got a second sandwich for myself. HAHA. I got the Riverhead breakfast sandwich and it was 10/10. I love love egg breakfast sandwiches. I want to go back and try the East Village one of these days!

Really, trying new food places is one of the my favorite things to do! I have so many places left on my list, but I am excited to go through them all and find all the best places to eat in Utah!

Dons with the Tick

I'm not really sure why we did this, but we did. Sometimes Trixie just looks so sad when we are leaving the house, ya know? Anyway, it was v enjoyable. This was the seond time we tried Art City Donuts and let me tell ya. Those glazed were wayyy better than the ones we got last time. I think last time we got the shortcake donuts and I decided I didn't like them. But for some reason the just plain, glazed donuts were SO GOOD.

There is this horse-drawn carriage in our neighborhood that comes out during the summer. It's quite strange and I have no idea where it comes from or why it happens, but it is pretty majestical. We saw it on the way home! The first sighting of the season! If anyone knows who owns it and how we can book a ride... please let me know lol.

Here are some funny things people said this week...
(We took Trixie with us to get some donuts. She threw up in her mouth. There was one donut left.) 
Me: "Should we give it to The Tick?"
J: "Nah, she doesn't deserve it with her burp mouth."

Me: "J come hug me."
My mom: "Emmy. He's busy."
(J in background putting the lid on a bottle of Dr. Pepper.)
