Madison, I’ve fallen madly in love with you all over again. Although our love affair never really ended, things had started to feel a bit stale. But you snuck up on me yesterday and reminded me of what I loved about you all along. It really started on the bike path. I had almost forgotten what it feels like to leisurely cruise past (still dormant) community gardens, smiling strangers, friends having fires, chirping spring peepers and corgi duos. And then there was the pitcher of Lake Louie Scotch Ale– possibly the world’s greatest beer- and the small order of sexy fries shared with a spiritual hero (Lauren, I will pack the boyfriend and cats in a camper and see the country!) on Mickey’s back deck. Today there was another trip on the bike path, lunch at a vegetarian restaurant
where a Jameson and orange blossom lemonade cocktail was on special
and the bar next door was hosting a meat raffle.
Now I’ve got jeans drying on the clothesline, two happy cats sunning themselves in the yard and iced coffee in my jar. Ah, Madison. It’s good to have you back.

Ahhhh… It was!
We are just coming back to Madison and are very happy. Only a 10 minute walk from Olbrich which will be fun. Green Owl is great, last time I ate there I got and Italian “beef” sandwich made with seitan and a side of kale chips, very good.
Love kale chips! Thanks for reading and welcome back to Madison!
