Coffee + Conversation

Happy Monday! If we were having coffee today, I would tell you that I have absolutely no idea where the month of August has gone. It has totally flown by. It has been hot and steamy here in Charlotte, though, so I'm not totally hating to be a little closer to fall, though.

Corey and I celebrated our 5th anniversary last weekend. We traveled to St. John earlier in the summer for our "big" celebration and then enjoyed a nice dinner in Charlotte on the actual night.

We started with drinks at the Ritz Uptown and then headed to Bentley's on 27 for dinner. We had never had dinner there before and it was amazing.

It is located on the 27th floor so it has great city views. We were given a private corner booth and enjoyed a great meal. I would say this is one of the most delicious, if not the most delicious meals that I have had since we moved to Charlotte. We will definitely be back for future celebrations.

I am just loving Madeline's age right now. She is becoming so independent and absolutely loves doing for herself. She is such a happy girl right now (now that those canines finally broke through PTL). She is getting ready to start preschool in a couple weeks so I am soaking up our last few weeks of being home every day together.

She turned 18 months old on Thursday and celebrated with her first cake pop from Starbucks. We don't really offer her sweets so this was certainly a treat for her and she went to town. Thanks Aunt Kate and Nonnie for the taste of something sweet.

I am getting back into my regular schedule this week after having some family in town last week. It was definitely nice to spend some much-needed time together. I feel very behind on my to-do list, though, but it was well worth it. 

On my list for today is meal prep, stepping outside during nap time to catch the eclipse, a little work, a trip to the post office, and spending a lot of time with my girl.   Happy Monday!
