celebrating because that's what the weekend is for

This weekend felt like summer - well a little bit of summer - has finally arrived after a long and cold winter that kept me inside more than I like to admit.

Saturday - a birthday celebration fit for a fellow Polish friend as she turned the ripe young age of 30.

Sometimes you stumble upon friends that you quite simply connect with in a way that would indicate you knew each other for years - Donna is one of those people. Because Cleveland is a rather small city at times, we crossed each other's paths on a Friday night when I landed from my amazing European vacation in the fall and have been friends ever since. Her celebration was sensational with a delicious chocolate and peanut butter cake, moscow mules and she had quite the talented group of karaoking fools to keep everyone entertained all night long.


Closed for partying; the birthday girl; obviously I'm all for the desserts

Sunday: celebrating a very young at heart Julie Jean

My brother and I always want to out do ourselves from the year before and love to take our parents to new restaurants because they love to explore all of Cleveland's neighborhoods through the food. After experiencing the Provenance brunch with friends in the winter, we knew that this would be the perfect spot to celebrate Mother's day, especially since my parents have been to every other museum but not the art museum. Provenance provided an awesome experience for us and even gave my mom a $40 gift card to dine in the next few months another time.
