WEST SIDE MARKET IN CLEVELAND

WEST SIDE MARKET IN CLEVELAND

Chris and I visited Cleveland, Ohio during Easter weekend and a trip to West Side Market is a must when you’re in the neighborhood. I first visited the market back in April and mentioned it in a blog post here. I was thrilled to be back and once again utterly jealous of the people who live within walking distance of all this delicious food. Our goal was to find the perfect dessert to share on Easter Sunday. Bunny macarons took home the blue ribbon! Aside from decadent treats, West Side Market also offers a staggering variety of meats, cheeses, fresh baked breads, and produce. Let me show you around!

ICE SKATING DATE NIGHT

ICE SKATING DATE NIGHT

Traditions are a part of Christmas for lots of couples and Chris and I are no different. I already mentioned that we started a new tradition for our tree this year. However, one tradition that hasn’t changed is our annual ice skating date. When Chris asked me to go ice skating the first year we were together I was excited because I thought it would be like a Hallmark movie. We would glide along the ice like two lovebirds in Market Square, drink hot cocoa, and question how we ever lived apart. False. Y’all, I could not have been more wrong. Chris skates as smooth as butter melts and I look like a newborn baby deer on ice. Over the years I’ve gotten better at skating but Chris literally skates circles around me because hockey. That’s why. Really though, we end up having the best time when we go ice skating and it reminds me why I love my husband so much. Continue reading “ICE SKATING DATE NIGHT”

CLEVELAND INDIANS GAME

CLEVELAND INDIANS GAME

            In April I got to see my first professional baseball game to celebrate Christopher’s dad’s birthday. We saw the Cleveland Indians play the Detroit Tigers. I don’t care how cheesy this sounds but every time I get to mark something off my bucket list it’s such a treat! Especially since I got to experience it with some of my favorite people. Here’s to many more birthdays for Christopher’s dad, Ken! Continue reading “CLEVELAND INDIANS GAME”
