I often wonder what it is that keeps me from blogging and I think more than anything, it's worrying what everyone else will think. I have a hard time writing about stuff that's really not central to what I'm thinking about - but rather just fluff.
So here goes - my attempt at being more honest and trying to catch up on the going-ons of the Keith homestead.
First of all - my sister Kati and her bearded boyfriend John came out to Nashville for a visit! It was amazing (yes, family...you can skip all this, since you already know). Kati didn't tell John that she was coming and it was a fun surprise for him! I had made a Kahlua Espresso Chocolate Ganache Cheesecake for John and his sister Ann's visit and we all got to catch up over a heavenly slice of dessert and some hot coffee. Speaking of HOT - it was in the hundreds the entire time they were here. Sorry guys :-( That heat wave did a number on our lawncare business cause it caused all the grass to die. We were seriously praying for rain and it hasn't stopped raining since they left!
We took them out for some fun local eats at The Pharmacy, which has bomb hamburgers, sweet potato fries and homemade sodas. They have this burger called The Farm Burger and it's a beef patty, topped with a slice of country ham, topped with bacon & a cooked egg. I mean seriously? Only the South folks.
I also took John & Kati to the infamous Pancake Pantry, where we just so happened to be seated next to the founder and original owner, Robert Baldwin. How cute is this old man??
I had to include a pic of holding my nugget Kai. I could kiss on him all day long. I'm excited to get some snuggle time in with him this weekend and some much needed girl talk with his mama Julie.
And finally - a girls night out with some of my besties Julie, Amy & Jenni. I know I'm beyond blessed with some seriously amazing friends out here. I love these girls beyond words.
Ok - so you're all caught up!
