Things that made me happy in the last 24 hours....

1. Thinking about my dad turning 85 years old and being able to take him out to lunch yesterday to celebrate!
2. Seeing baby Audrey and Mama Jill. You are adjusting so well, my friend, and I hope I can grow up to be like you one day:o)
3. Being able to say goodbye to Carl (next door neighbor) yesterday at his visitation. Carl was very well-known in the Columbus broadcast and academic world and was a kind, smart man. He helped us settle into the new neighborhood (since he built his house himself in 1950!) He will be missed, but it was clear to see that he was very loved yesterday.
4. Going to breakfast with my breakfast partner, Julie. We have decided to make it official. Once a month, we are breakfasting in a new place together. This morning, we had a great CHEAP breakfast at the German Village Coffee House (aka: Das Kaffe Haus). For $8, I had a huge, delicious ham&cheese omelette, 2 pieces of toast, 2 pieces of french toast, and a giant OJ. The place is tiny and cozy, and I can see how the immediate locals would regularly go there instead of making breakfast at home!
5. Realizing that my favorite cupcake place has a location NEXT DOOR to the coffee house! I've already mentioned Bakery Gingham on my "Best of Columbus" page.  Though the Short North location is more convenient for me, the GV location is a must-see. If I ever have a daughter, I will base her nursery off this bakery because it is the most fun interior I have ever seen...

And here are the treats I brought home...













Grim Raspberry and Oreo Sandwiched...and of course, 2 pupcakes, which were immediately devoured:














Then they both ran off with their treasures into the bedroom to eat them in peace. They are so weird...
