WELCOME TO CLEVELAND

WELCOME TO CLEVELAND

Hello 2019! I can’t believe I’m writing my first post of the new year. The holidays seemed to jet passed me in a blur. I think this year I’ll put up my Christmas decorations BEFORE Thanksgiving like a heathen and everyone else can just deal. Last week, Chris and I went to Ohio to see family and we spent one of our days in Cleveland. This city has A LOT to offer. Here’s what we did during our short visit… Continue reading “WELCOME TO CLEVELAND”

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!

A GIVEAWAY TO START THE NEW YEAR (NOW CLOSED)

I hope everyone had a wonderful celebration this weekend! We went to Ohio to be with Christopher’s family since we didn’t make it there for Christmas. On the drive up, I started noticing LOTS of snow. Once we got to West Virginia the roads were terrible. There were no salt trucks or scrapers in sight. At one point we were going 30 miles an hour on the interstate. Continue reading “A GIVEAWAY TO START THE NEW YEAR (NOW CLOSED)”

DINNER AT GOAT SOUP AND WHISKEY

My Ohio bachelorette party could not have been more enjoyable! I felt like a local and definitely part of the family since I got to celebrate my upcoming nuptials and one of the last weekends of summer at Put-In-Bay. Christopher’s family did the planning so I got to feel special and enjoy myself without worrying about playing the role of cruise director. Continue reading “DINNER AT GOAT SOUP AND WHISKEY”

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”
