Blog-keeping first: Congrats to Sarah on winning two tickets to Locavore! Please email me your name and the name of the guest you are bringing with you – looking forward to the evening and hope you are too! Tickets are still available so I hope you consider joining us for this awesome event/cause!
What do you do on a day off in The CLE? (Yep – I took a day off and mostly spent it away from work….I had to send a few emails though!)
Well after fighting off a hangover, caused by well vodka, I spent my Friday with one of my favorite girl friends, shopping for a dress for Locavore. And surprisingly, we found one pretty quickly that I fall in love with a little more every time I walk by it. We shopped most of the morning, and spent a lovely early afternoon in Tremont, visiting boutiques and settling in for a fantastic lunch and conversation.
Friday made me think of how I am to have such fantastic friends. Ever have one of those friends you can talk to for hours and still have more to talk about? Is it not one of the biggest and best blessings you can ask for?
That evening, clefoodgoddess and I visited Hodge’s for dinner prior to heading to the Social Suite for the Indians game. Unfortunately, this year just hasn’t been the same for me in the Social Suite. I was bummed when I walked in and saw that there were Yankees fans (from New York) in the Suite. Here’s why – it’s the Indians Social Suite. For fans who are active on Twitter, Facebook and blogger world. I hope that in the future, more active Tweeps, Facebookers and bloggers have the opportunity to attend the Suite.
But in the grand scheme of things, not much really mattered when I woke to the news this weekend that Cleveland and the world has lost an incredible woman. And the thing is, you may have never heard of her. Want to see a woman of grace and faith? Check this blog out – I’ve never in my life (growing up in a Christian home and school) seen a person more full of faith and more courageous – despite receiving news of a devastating disease. So thank you Kat – you touched my life and hundreds, and possibly even thousands, more than you will ever know.
Note: I was invited by the Cleveland Indians to attend the Social Suite for the game on Friday. Opinions are my own.
Additional Note: I’m blogging for the MS Society event, Locavore and was invited to give away two tickets to the event. Again, all opinions are mine but I’m a fan of this non-profit in The CLE!
