around the town
yesterday was lovely! i took vickie and travis on a very selective tour of the triangle.
powering up to go . . .
these two are caf-fiends!
and then somehow we found ourselves at guglhupf where THIS happened:
my expression does not adequately convey the unbridled glee i was experiencing at office supplies & more
i don’t know how long we spent in this chapel hill stationery store, but it was a while! the setup isn’t super-glamorous, but the shop is a treasure trove for paper or pen lovers (i am mostly the former . . .obvs). it was like the daily planner catalog had come to life! if you live in the area and are
anywhere as nerdy as i am into these sorts of things, i definitely suggest you check it out.
the carnage was fairly minimal:
and in the evening
it was bittersweet sending v + t on their way, but i pulled myself together because we had a lovely dinner with liv and stevo planned. they had invited us over for sushi, and requested that i make a japanese side dish.
i’m not sure if it’s authentically japanese, but the first that popped into my head was gliding calm tofu!
our gracious hosts (they JUST got engaged — yay!) went all out, making both homemade sushi and summer rolls with peanut sauce.
liv getting cozy with their wonderful dog bubba
it was such a fun and relaxing night! i can’t wait to have these two over here soon.
quiet. slow. relaxed. it’s a catch-up day!
workout: 43 minute run in chapel hill (yeah, i exceeded my allowance by a smidge, but whatever. it was glorious!)
