|Milan's piece that I bought. Titled: HIGH ROLLER|
I mean how could I NOT buy it?
Hilarious, simple, witty work. Check out more here.
Also picked up this totally crazy mask from Empty Nest. The lady didn't know much about the piece so I've decided it's from...Zimbabwe...rightfully so...
After the L-Wood Arts Fest we hit up Bruno's. Surprisingly, many Clevelanders are not hip to this authentic, cozy, and ourageously good eatery. It may be the location (slightly sketch) or the fact they have no advertising--but this word of mouth joint is the King of Italian cuisine & equal-size portions.
|"He who eats well is very close with God." AAAAMEN!|
Man, oh man, Manicotti. Take a look at that knife in proportion to those suckers!
My favorite part of the weekend was the suprise of getting to hang with my nieces! Jules and her girls are in town visiting. So we met up at the park to get in some jungle gym action. Seriously, how the heck does she keep up with these balls of energy? Must be Super Mom!
|Here comes trouble!! :)|
|Orange icee to cool down Chloe...straws are her new discovery|
|You'd have to be a souless zombie |
if you don't have a gigantic smile slapped across your face looking at Lily & her swing swag
|Literally, Rockstar status!|
|Aunt Catie and Chloe flying high!|
|Aunt Jess and ChloBo|
No matter what kind of day I am having, I am instantly elated and grateful to see these little ones. Watching them discover new things, their enjoyment and amusement simply by swinging and letting their hair blow back-- is a very humbling and thoughtful experience as an adult.

I guess what you'd call it is innocence.
|Sister kisses. OMG! Seriously could they be anymore precious? I think not!|
Julie is such an AMAAAAAZING mom (not to mention hottie, smartypants, and goofball all rolled into one). Being around her and the twins certainly gives me perspective, inspiration, courage and definitely COUNT MY BLESSINGS! So glad to have a wonderful weekend! And now...it's time... for my nap. :) Keep JAMmin, CLE! Life is beautiful!
