Monday morning: Just me, this car, and a big pink sky.I headed out a little early to squeeze in some extra miles this a.m. We have a busy week coming up so I’m running as much as I can today and tomorrow!I did two miles solo and then met Katie at good old Shelby Park for five more. She just got back from a trip abroad so we had lots of catching up to do. Helped the miles fly by!Two more miles home with a stop to admire this shattered sidewalk mirror. #streetfurnitureI was sad to feel the humidity creeping back into the air after such a cool weekend, but I can’t complain. Good run.How was the rest of your weekend? We caught up on a few things around the house on Saturday and then made it out for the last moments of the Tomato Festival!Luckily the crowds were starting to clear when we visited and it wasn’t nearly as hot as last year. And our legs were (kind of?) rested up after the morning’s long run! East Nasty. My hood.You guessed it: the theme of the tomato festival is tomatoes. Food tomatoes, art tomatoes, clothing tomatoes, jewelry tomatoes… everything. Tomatoes. (Or toe-mAh-toes, as Anthony likes to call them )We ended up buying this splattered tomato print. Not sure where we’ll find space to hang it but we thought it was too weird and cool to not to buy. You know?
Then we rocked out for a bit to Myzika. Loved her music! I’m a new fan. Saturday night was fancy dinner at home night. Anthony and I both had some eventful (in a good way!) weeks at work and decided to celebrate with STEAK.We kept it very all-American with baked potatoes and creamed spinach on the side. Classic.After a big run and busy day, this meal hit the spot. Cheers to Anthony for mastering the art of grilling steaks. He had the whole process timed down to the millisecond! Wine of the evening: This Gigondas blend. We’re off to Italy in a few weeks (!!) and will be drinking pleeeeeenty of Italian wine when we get there. So until then we’re trying to branch out with some French wine for fun.Cheers!
- Have you ever been to Italy? Or Slovenia? (We’re going there, too)
