Hello my loves!

Once again I apologize for my absence, but from my last post I think you can understand that I have a lot going on. But that really does not excuse my lack of keeping you all up to speed on what’s going on. I really do love this blog and sharing my life with you all, and now that things are starting to settle I promise I will make more frequent appearances. But since it has been so long, I thought a photo dump of a post might be in order. That way I won’t waste your time with a lot of words, but fill you in with pictures.

I know Easter was a while ago, but I really have to note how incredibly amazing our new neighbors are. All of them have been so welcoming and I think the second day we moved in we came home to this welcome basket. This was the first sign that they were amazingly welcoming, but since then they have proved it even more.

We know how incredibly lucky we are to have such kind neighbors, it’s seriously a rarity in this city. So the fact that our street is such a little tight knit community it icing to the cake on our amazing house!

So we had a lot of local spots that we knew we were going to miss when we moved. I still dream about these biscuits and gravy on Sunday’s…

We have been having a good time finding a replacement.

And I’ll tell you what, we’ve found some pretty fancy Bloody Mary and biscuits and gravy…

This was at a place down town, a bit of a trek to get there, but bacon with a Bloody Mary?

Yes please.

They served their biscuits and gravy with potatoes… which was kind of odd, but not bad.

It was also made with a chorizo gravy, hence the color..

Next Sunday we found a really cute coffee shop that was more in our neighborhood.

This place had such a cool vibe and had a lot to offer. But per tradition, we stuck with Bloody Mary’s and biscuits and gravy.

When we ordered the Bloody Mary from the bartender, she informed us their recipe had 18 ingredients and it would take her a few minutes to make it.

Totally worth the wait. This was one of the best Bloody Mary’s I have had. And I’m not even that big of a fan of Bloody Mary’s.

Matt again chose to get chorizo with his biscuits and gravy, again delicious. And their iced Americano’s where amazing as well.

I have a feeling we will be frequenting this place often.

Even though our old spot was a bit dingy, and maybe not the most fancy set up, I will say I miss their biscuits and gravy the most. And the atmosphere. It’s nice being a regular, so it was always nice to get such a warm welcome when we walked in. Not to say we can’t establish that else where, but for the moment.. the feeling is missed.

We have been exploring for more than just biscuits and gravy.

We found good pizza.

And even beautiful rose gardens where the owner hand picks a rose for you.

And promptly gives it to your husband to give to “his beautiful wife”.

Yes I think it’s safe to say we have been exploring our new neighborhood.

The house is slowly but surely coming along. Matt and I are both so excited to make it our own, but I can tell you…it already feels like home.

Do you have any spots where you are a regular?

Do you like Bloody Mary’s? I prefer mimosa’s myself…
