Some thoughts recently:

1. My highest priority this week, along with keeping up with the regular things, is going to sleep early. I am two days in, and so far so good.

2. I am not a coffee snob but it is becoming difficult to drink the bland coffee at work everyday. Should I get a mini espresso maker? Or should I cut down on coffee? 

3.  We are already nearing the end of July, and I have deeply entrenched anxiety about the summer ending.

4. Speaking of counting down, there are 47 days left until Sloane starts kindergarten. I have so many feelings about this, although I haven't named them yet.

5. My parents are going to be here next week and I am so excited! 

These photos are more captures from our time exploring Columbus a few weeks ago. One of the must-do things on my list was to go get some Jeni's ice cream and you guys, SO good. We tried to squeeze a second trip in there before we left but couldn't make it happen. Thankfully, you can order pints of it online but it was definitely much more fun going to the shop and getting it scooped into cones. 

We also checked out this area called Short North, which is a street filled with an assortment of shops and restaurants. We perused for a while and ate lunch here before heading to the wedding rehearsal on Friday. 

Other things of note! We had lunch at this place called Sweet Carrot, which is a barbecue place that gives you the option of getting your choice slathered upon a corn cake. I got the fried artichoke option and it was really delicious. 

We had breakfast at a place called Fox in the Snow and the bakery items there had my eyes as big as saucers. The chocolate croissant we got there was divine and the egg sandwich was perfect. Yes, perfect! 

I was able to get a quick appointment in at The Blowdry Bar before the wedding on Saturday and I loved how quick and easy it was. I loved the results and the price was very reaaonable. I wish we had one of those in Richmond. 

We also had some of the best tacos I've ever had at this place called Los Gauchos Tacqueria. Ken's cousin told us Food Network had ranked their tacos #3 in the nation and were like 'really?? In Ohio?' But really, in Ohio.  It was all so good, my particular favorite was the fish taco, and it was so cheap, which somehow makes it taste even better. 

We will be back, Columbus!
