Two years ago.

Two years ago, my nephew Edgerton sent us this amazing little piece of art entitled, “Octopod for Shellington & Captain Barnacles”…

And it’s still one of my favorites and it’s still hanging in my office…

I adore this little piece of art.😀📝🐙❤️

Good evening from Northside.

Good evening from Northside. 😀🌄❤️

A morning run around.

We had the day off work today for the MLK Jr Day holiday. This morning we got up early to run some errands. We planned on stopping to get coffee at College Hill Coffee Company in College Hill…

But they’re closed on Mondays. We picked up a refill of Mack’s allergy medicine from his vet down the street in College Hill. And then we headed over to Rookwood. We finally got coffee and hot chocolate from Joseph-Beth Booksellers. We had a couple of exchanges at J. Crew. And ran through Home goods where we saw an awesome Josh mug. You don’t see Josh mugs very often. This one will be on its way out to Boston as soon as I can find a little box to put it in…

After we were done running our errands, we had lunch at Rusty Bucket. It’s funny it seems like every time we’re over at Rookwood we end up eating lunch at Rusty Bucket…

It’s nothing fancy. It’s just really good. Genifer’s been on quite a quesadilla kick lately…

Making it two days in a row. But we shared the first one so… I had the same sammich I order every single time we go to Rusty Bucket, Chicken Finger BLT...

And we shared a piece of strawberry cheesecake for dessert…

I ate all the strawberries and whipped cream. Genifer ate the actual cheesecake.

Other than our errands, we didn’t do much else today. We walked the dogs and watched the Lakers-Celtics MLK Day NBA game and that was about it. 😀🐔❤️

Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day!

Today, we remember the legacy of a great man. We honor The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr… a man who dared to dream while standing fearlessly in the face of adversity. We celebrate the man who taught us to dream while still loving others…

“We may have all come on different ships, but we’re in the same boat now.”

“An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.”

“Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into friend.”

“Only in the darkness can you see the stars.”

“Everybody can be great … because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”

Martin Luther King Jr.

Today was really COLD!

It was really cold today. I’m pretty sure it was the coldest day of the year so far…

And it started snowing when we were out walking the dogs tonight…

Brrrrr! 🥶🌨️❄️❤️

Django Western Taco.

This morning we ran some errands. We got more Biggby Coffee and then ran to the grocery to get some stuff for the week. When we got back to Northside, we braved the cold to walk over to Django Western Taco for lunch…

We had some chips & salsa, each had a taco and shared their Jerk Chicken Quesadilla…

And then we shared Django’s amazing bread pudding…

This time it was a bourbon caramel bread pudding. It was amazing!

And I became the mayor of Django again on my Swarm

Django is so good. It’s one of our Northside favorites. 😀🌮❤️

It was a pretty rainy Saturday.

It was a very rainy and grey day in Northside…

And we didn’t do very much today. We watched some soccer and some basketball and a couple of movies on Netflix. And we looked into some ideas for a trip to celebrate our anniversary in February. It was a pretty relaxing and low-key Saturday. 😀🌧️❤️

A pretty good start to the weekend.

It’s Saturday morning so we got up early to go get more Biggby Coffee

This weekend we had a coupon for $1 off…

Genifer got a 20oz. Caramel Marvel latte and I got a 24oz. Cocoa Carmella hot chocolate with some butterscotch flavoring added to it…

Biggby’s coffee is sooo good. When we got home with our Biggby coffees, we made some delicious cinnamon rolls for breakfast…

What a great way to start a weekend. 😀☕️❤️

NYPD Pizza party!

Tonight, we had another NYPD Pizza party

We’ve been all about their Station House pizza lately. And NYPD’s boneless wings are always delicious. I think an NYPD Pizza party is a terrific way to start the long three-day holiday weekend. 😀🍕❤️

Our 5000th blog post.

This is our 5000th blog post on T+G…

After Milan passed away, we started our new blog, T+G. Shortly after, we migrated all of our blog posts starting with our very first date from Blogger to WordPress. 5,000 blog posts later, we’re still going strong. It’s really been a labor of love. I love our blog because it gives us a searchable database of literally everything we’ve done together since our very first date.

And I think that’s pretty darn awesome. So many wonderful memories. Thank you for stopping by and sharing our adventures with us! 😀💻❤️
