I have been a little under the weather, two separate occasions with barely any time at all between them. I have thus been slacking on anything “ericanichole” related and I was itching to get something up, but a) since I have not been doing much, there’s not much to post and b) since I have to go to work soon, I really think I ought to nap so I don’t feel like double crud before a long shift. So, I wanted to make this short and sweet. This photograph was taken a week or two ago when my husband and I went to our local coffee shop with Rudy Mae for a quick pick me up (chai tea for me, hot chocolate for him, and a blueberry muffin for all).
On Saturday, we visited Caleab’s family. Carolyn, my mother-in-law, asked if I wanted to join her shopping at some local shops in Fremont, Ohio in support of “Small Business Saturday”. Of course I said yes; we love to support local/small businesses and even display a lovely “BUY LOCAL” bumper sticker on our vehicle. There were some wonderful little shops and I had my camera ready to go, but I got so wrapped up in talking and chatting and browsing! and bonding and laughing, that I completely forgot to take any photographs, save for the two I took when we stopped at a local coffee shop for a quick refresher (hot chocolate for her, chai tea for me, and a cookie each). It was really quite a splendid time.
