big night out

Two weeks ago I think a record was broken right here in Cleveland: fastest escape from a house, down the drive and up, up and away. My husband and I are the proud title holders. It was our first night out solo since Olivia and as soon as my sister showed up to watch the […]

the accidental tour de bruell

Within the past month and a half, we have been to 3 out of Zack Bruell’s 4 restaurants. If I wasn’t so full from dining out, I’d add in Table 45 and complete his actual tour. Here’s a recap of our recent Bruell eats: On Saturday, I got together with my oldest and dearest friends […]
