Day 1 - 4 | Cleveland, Ohio

Well, hello there! I won't take up too much of your time with all of the crazy stuff that's going on in my life. However, I did manage to squeeze a lovely little vacation in between my work, work, and more work schedules. And since we all really love to see pictures, below are TONS! I'll break them up in 2 parts (today and tomorrow), so that I don't fill up my whole darn blog today and bore the heck out of you!

Today I'm sharing pictures from my trip to Cleveland for my paternal Grandmother's 100th birthday and other fun stuff I did while there, and tomorrow I'll share pictures from my trip to Chicago. I've been to both places several times, so I've done all the sight-seeing types of things on previous trips. This time I went to enjoy family and to relax a bit.

P.S. all pictures were taken with my iPhone, so cut me some slack. Lol! I'm no pro. And if you follow me on Instagram HERE, then I'm sure you've seen a few of these pics already, so I apologize in advance for the re-post. ;)

We took a trip to the West Side Market which is Cleveland's oldest publicly owned market. I'd been before but wanted the hubs to see because it is a dream of ours to one day turn our outdoor farmers markets into a large indoor market that's open everyday. He was blown away and inspired! 
Believe it or not, my Anthropologie coat was sufficient through the 30 degree weather...eek!

My Dad's dilapidated childhood home in a seedy neighborhood in Cleveland. He was a bit rough around the edges as a child and shared so many fun stories with us about his memories here. Thank God he's a new creature in Christ now..... Lol! 

Hope you enjoyed...More pictures & fashion from my trip to the Windy City tomorrow :)
