My husband and I love Dayton with all our hearts, but on our 5 Year Wedding Anniversary we decided to take the day off from work and explore Columbus a little for a change. Here is the summary of the edible part of our adventure.
We started the day by returning to [...]
When I was working in Centerville, I often passed Bagel Cafe and I loved stopping in for lox and egg on a bagel. It made the best lunch in the world and I would get their biggest coffee possible. The place needed some love though because it always looked in disrepair – cushions ripped, [...]
I think I’ve probably passed this restaurant a thousand times. I honestly thought it was a shop, not a restaurant – but when I found out it was an Italian restaurant, I knew I had to stop in sometime.
I finally had a good reason to try Figlio when my friend Brandon [...]
Ok, so I’m about a month late with this one but on February 28th I celebrated my 2 year anniversary at work by bringing in donuts from Jim’s Donuts in Vandalia. I know I’ve shown you my photo submission for the Vandalia Photo Contest featuring my [...]

My beautiful, hilarious cousin posted this quote to facebook earlier today and I almost died laughing. She says she’s not sure where [...]
Since my sister started working downtown, I have heard nothing but how amazing the food is at The Ohio Coffee Company. Right when I was about to join her there for lunch several months ago, they closed to move to a new location inside the 5/3rd Building. So we patiently waited until [...]
Being as it’s already December, I figured I wouldn’t write about Thanksgiving this year, but I realized that I had a great time and pictures so why not? First of all, Rob and I went to Hasty Tasty for breakfast and I went a little overboard.
We normally have a lot [...]
My sister and I found ourselves without plans one Saturday afternoon so we decided to meet at Butter Cafe before she ventured south to IKEA and I ventured…um…northish? to the Huber Heights Kohl’s (recently renovated, my grandmother insisted that we take a look at it together – it’s shockingly different).
Disclaimer: I love independent shops and make it a point to spend most of my entertainment budget supporting them. I really do. See every 4th blog post and scroll down until you see a picture from Ghostlight Coffee if you don’t believe me. Ok, with that being said…
Every year I wait (semi) patiently for [...]
Welcome!I love Dayton, I've lived here for all of my 26 years and don't plan on settling anywhere else. I started this blog as a way to showcase the best of Dayton (as seen through my perspective) and also to share some of the things that occupy space in my mind, namely beauty, home decor, quotes, and various aspects of my life.
