quick trip to Charlotte

Friday, August 16, 2013

Summer days (off) becoming numbered + a desperate need to get out of town = a road trip to see my best friend.  It was refreshing to spend time with my best friend, her husband/my childhood friend, and their dog.  

I was only there for two days, but of course I brought food.  I can't be caught without a snack.  I don't remember this about my grandfather, but I have heard that he took a cooler of drinks with him wherever he went, including in his airplane.  The habit and (obviously) this cooler are hand me downs.  

Lindsay suggested that we make sushi, and when I got there, she already had all of the ingredients.  She blew my homemade sushi away with several more ingredients--asparagus, salmon, carrots--and a beautiful platter.

She even had pretty flowers on the table and around the house!  The more I think about it, the more I want to move in with them...

The next day, we walked Finn, tried a new restaurant, shopped around the neighborhood, took an eclair break, and went to a food truck festival.  I had written down two places that I wanted to see while I was in Charlotte, without knowing that both of them were right in their neighborhood!  

I had so much fun in Charlotte and thoroughly enjoyed spending time with Lindsay and Tom.  

Charlotte is the perfect place for me to go to experience a different city that still feels close to home.  Thank you, best friends, for letting me come visit you!
