After traveling the past two weekends, I’m so looking forward to being in the city this weekend. Ahhhhhhhhh yes.
It’s been a crazy couple of weeks so in the most lame way possible, I’m excited to do laundry, clean the apartment, maybe even cook a recipe [what?!] and actually go to church here, which hasn’t happened in a few weeks.
Here’s another round of weekly eats based on what I found on my camera, including what I have from our trip to Charlottesville last weekend! It was so so so restful. I got to see so many old friends that are so close to my heart, everyone loved Nick, and we spent a lot of time outside between hiking, vineyards, running and dinners al fresco. I love the city, but that place refreshes my soul.
Have a wonderful weekend! Relax, eating some ice cream, and just soak up this sweet summatime.
lunch // salad with 1/2 avocado, balsamic, tomato and cucumber + Ezekiel with other 1/2 avocado, tomato, fried egg and Cholula + cantaloupe
dinner // I had a final on Wednesday and Nick came over on Tuesday night and brought me dinner that he cooked [I know, I know…he’s the best] This was some sort of sauteed swiss chard with walnuts, zucchini cooked in olive oil, and a kale, ground beef, sweet potato something. It was awesome and I was super grateful.
