We had such a fun weekend and we owe most of that to the fact that Lee's aunt & uncle were in town and his cousin & her husband played tour guide (they've lived in Cleveland for the past 4 years). We discovered some new places and had a super fun time.
bakery while stuffing our faces with a gorgeous apple crostada & cinnamon roll. (Not to worry, Lee & I shared.)
We also dined at another new-to-us restaurant (the bloody marys were delicious!) & I got to do a little shopping in some cute boutiques - Banyan Tree (where I got pretty new necklace & earrings) and Evie Lou (where I swooped up an incredibly soft & lightweight sweatshirt - Aunt Mary described it feeling like a hug). Lots of exploring was done and now I can't wait to share some of our finds with my mom & David (who are set to arrive Thursday) and Natalie (she arrives Friday).
Over the course of the weekend Lee & I also attended two BBQ's from sweet ladies I've met through the Eastside Welcome Club. The women have all been super welcoming and so sweet to include me. We only spent an hour or so at the one on Saturday evening since we had plans with the fam but ended up at the other one for almost 5 hours! Guess that's a clue that we're enjoying the people we're meeting in our new town. Yep, feeling super blessed & lucky to have met some wonderful peeps.
Because I can't seem to post these days without including some yummy food I'll close with this picture of our dessert at Luxe...
Since I clearly enjoyed my weekend of eating & drinking I'm about to head out with some friends for a 5-6 mile walk. Sounds good, right? It would be if today wasn't forecasted to break a heat record set in the 1940's. Oh well... Gotta work it out and, hopefully, work it off!
