It was cold outside, and we wanted brunch. We headed over to Zelda Road to go to First Watch, a place that’s quickly risen to the top of our local list. We’d been there for a “take Mom to lunch” type of thing, and also had an early morning coffee there. The place bills itself […]

This past weekend we braved the snow to check out both the holiday pop-up at Kress and the Product of Montgomery store at 1228 Madison.

Typically, I blog about quaint small towns with delicious pizza or my first trip to a classic tourist destination. But today’s post is a little different. Don’t worry though, there’s still food involved. My husband, David, and I don’t travel much during the holidays, most of our family members live within a half-hour drive. Our […]
