Several weeks ago I went to visit my best friend, Laura, in Columbus. It was such a great time. Laura is one of those friends that I can just pick back up with no matter how long we’ve gone without seeing each other. This time was no exception.
Laura and I met in nursing school and totally bonded over the craziness, stress and sometimes ridiculousness of it all. We have been best friends ever since. Two years after we graduated from nursing school, Laura moved back to her home state of Ohio. We promised we would have semi-annual reunions. I would travel there once a year, and she would travel here once a year. In September it was my turn to go up there. We.had.so.much.fun.
Laura lives in a cute little section of Columbus called Grandview. We had so much fun exploring different parts of Columbus, visiting some of the same places we went last year and some new places. I would say I had a favorite thing, but I think everything we did was my favorite.
There was, of course, lots of coffee. Just when I thought I wouldn’t find anyone who loved coffee as much as I do (outside my family of course), I met Laura. We’re kindred spirits like that. The second picture is from a really cute coffee shop that roasts their own coffee on the main street of their town. We went there twice and I got a latte both times. Delicious.
And speaking of being in the kitchen, Laura and I whipped up some apple crisp with apples we got from a little market down the street. We felt so fall-ish. And domestic. Just look at Laura with that butter! 😉
