And it was a rainy morning.

Yesterday’s rainy evening carried over into this morning. It looked really threatening when we were taking the dogs out on their morning walk before work…

On our way downtown, it didn’t look any better…

And by the time I got upstairs to work, it was raining again…

But the good news is, I made myself this breakfast sammich croissant at work…

It was delicious. And later, there was strawberry birthday cheesecake at work…

So it’s all good.ย ๐Ÿ˜€โ˜๏ธ๐ŸŒง๏ธ๐Ÿฅโค๏ธ

Northside snails.

We saw a couple more snails on our dog walk this morning…

I wonder where all these snails come from and where are they heading to? ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒโค๏ธ

Sunday afternoon at Taft’s Brewpourium.

We went around the corner toย Taft’s Brewpourium for lunch this afternoon. We had one of Taft’s delicious Bloody Mary’s…

And some delicious New Haven style pizza with Taft’s incredible BBQ wings…

We really love the Brewpourium. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ”โค๏ธ

Google Maps Local Guides Level 8!

I’ve been working really hard on my Google Maps Local Guidesย lately. I posted photos and reviews of almost every place we stopped on our recent epic road tripย to try to propel myself from Level 7 up into the promised land of Level 8. And I was getting sooo darn close…

And thenย I finally made it to Google Maps Local Guides Level 8!ย 

HOORAY! Level 8! It doesn’t really mean a lot. I just think it’s fun. It’s kind of like my Swarm. It’s another way to share experiences and especially another place to share all the dang photos I take of every little thing every day.

And that’s really why I like Google Maps Local Guides! #LetsGuide ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ—บ๏ธ8โƒฃโค๏ธ

Seen and noted.

Check out this big daddy long legs that we saw out on our back patio this evening…

Remember when we were walking through Parker Woods and weย saw 125 daddy long legs on one walk? Yeah… That was pretty crazy. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ•ท๏ธ๐Ÿ‘€โค๏ธ

And then I mowed the grass in our backyard…

We still need to figure out what we’re doing with our backyard. It has so much potential. But we really can’t decide on how we want the finished product to look. We keep looking at idea after idea and even started a Pinterest board to collect and organize our inspirations. But it hasn’t done much to help. And it’s kind of a bummer.

Happy National Pizza Party Day!

We stopped at NYPD on our way home to pick up a cheese pizza so we could celebrate National Pizza Party Day!ย 

And it was delicious. Every day should be National Pizza Party Day!ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ•โค๏ธ

Good evening from Northside.

It was another rainy evening in Northside. Sometimes when it rains, the colors become so vivid. Tonight was one of those nights. It was really beautiful…

It’s what’s for dinner.

Tonight, we had Trader Joe’s Kung Pao Chicken for dinner…

It was really good. Not quite as good as Trader Joe’s Mandarin Orange Chicken.ย That’s freaking amazing. But this was still really good. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿฅกโค๏ธ

We’re back from our epic road trip!

We made it back to Cincinnati this afternoon…

And we’re back home. We returned our rental SUV. picked up Mack from his kennel and our house survived just fine…

The grass was a bit long. But none the worse for wear. We had a great time on our epic road trip! Over 10 days, we covered almost 1950 miles through seven states.

We hope you followed along on our adventure. If not, check out our Instagrams. All of our photos have been posted and labeled on Flickr. And we even uploaded some videos to our YouTube.ย It was a great trip. We had a wonderful time. But it’s really nice to be home. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ—บ๏ธโค๏ธ
