Project 365: Days 239-244
239/365: David and I met in Ohio—he drove and I flew. We had dinner with my dad at the Olive Garden (David's first ever OG experience!) and had s'mores over a campfire in my dad's backyard for dessert.
240/365: David's culinary tour of Ohio continued with a stop at Swenson's for lunch.
241/365: We went on a hike through the Ledges at Virginia Kendall (part of the Cuyahoga Valley National Park) and everything was so green.
242/365: I took a solo, mini-road trip through southern Ohio (to two cemeteries, the World's Largest Cuckoo Clock and Grandpa's Cheesebarn) and met my friend Shannon for dinner (and dessert at Mary Coyle in Akron).
243/365: My dad, grandma and I took another mini-road trip to East Liverpool, Ohio and Chester, West Virginia for antiquing, the Fiestaware factory and the World's Largest Teapot.
244/365: I flew back to New York and couldn't resist plugging in my new light that I bought for $4.95 at an antique mall in Sugarcreek, OH (definitely an all-year decoration).
I had fun in Ohio seeing family and friends (and checked off two "World's Largest" things), but as always I'm glad to be back in New York. This was the first time I've come back from a trip to my very own apartment and the novelty has still not worn off. Even though my stove is still not fixed (ugh—but I'm becoming a pro at microwave dinners :| ) I'm completely enamored with my new space. I went a little crazy in Ohio buying things I don't need—everything is so cheap!—but finding space for new pieces is always the least of my worries. We might try to go camping this weekend, and after my first s'mores of the season last week I'm eager for an encore. Have a great long weekend!
