Let’s Vacate for the Weekend


Mmmmm…. Louisville was wonderful! We antiqued like there was no tomorrow, strolled through Bardstown Road, lounged around, played with some kiddos, spent all of Sunday at Sojourn, and saw the movie we have all been waiting for, Tree of Life. It was a lovely weekend, and I was sad to see it go!

Now I bring to you…a very condensed Louisville dining guide! We brunched every day and had amazing dinners. Eiderdown was a new restaurant for me, and I loved it! You must go and get the popcorn as your appetizer! Crazy, I know, but it is Louisville. Everything is quirky. Spinelli’s is one of my favorites; its the wildest place and the white pizza blows my mind every single time. Lynn’s Paradise Cafe is the tackiest restaurant I have ever seen (it is like that on purpose…a total tourist trap) and I can’t get enough of it. Their breakfast is to die for, and the servings are massive. The crepes from Java Brewing Co. get me every time as well. Delicious. In addition, Ramsi’s Cafe on the World is still my number one Louisville favorite… they specialize in dishes from numerous cultures. Once you take one bite of your Egyptian dish (or whatever you choose), you are transported across the seas. Okay, now I have to explain why there are so many photos of that one muffin. Well, that is because it is the best muffin in the world. The little guy is from Quills Coffee, the best shop in Louisville, and it is blackberry banana chocolate chip. Yes, all of those things combined with an orange on the side make it the best muffin ever. Therefore, it deserves a few photos, right? Also, they have amazing red lattes there. I look forward to getting one every time we visit! So much food talk! Grief. But vacation is about the food and the company, so I would say that it was definitely an amazing getaway to the Hester household!

Mondays are Only Good When Aunts Come to Town


I thought I would give you a little polaroid lovin this overcast Tuesday! I shot this in Spring of 2009.

My sweet Aunt Mary came to visit me yesterday, and I basically took a mini vacation while she was here! I even stayed at a hotel with her. Plush bed, yes please, thank you. She also fed TJ & me so well and took us to our favorite place in town, Flat Iron Grille (the very best restaurant here), after I spoke at Town & Gown! More on that later. For now, amongst the craziness, I say thank goodness for family, loves, luxurious hotel beds, and scrumptious food!
