Blu Crabs // Columbus, GA

Coming from a small town on the coast of South Carolina and being raised in fresh, local seafood, Joe and I tend to be really picky and particular about our seafood. (Don’t even get us started on Red Lobster). So now that we are about 4 hours away from the coast, we have had a really hard time finding fresh seafood that tastes the way we enjoy. That being said, I am SO glad we stumbled upon Blu Crabs!

The More It Takes Away

Sometimes when I have a hard time finding words to express the jumble of emotions and thoughts rolling around in my head, I am able to find the simplest poem, quote, or combination of words to aid me. The above poem by Lang Leav is likely meant to be read in a romantic sense, however it’s different in my situation. It’s not a person who changed, who is changing… but a place.

This past weekend, Joe and I took a day trip up to Pine Mountain, LaGrange, and Hogansville to do some exploring/antiquing and just get out of Columbus. We know we want to plan an exclusive trip dedicated to checking out Callaway Gardens, but for today, we were content to explore the city and check out some of the local antique shops. This is our favorite pastime, because even if we don’t buy anything we become inspired and rejuvenated by new sights and experiences!

Caffe’ Amici

Last week was our 2 year marriage anniversary, and my husband and I decided to treat ourselves to a nice dinner out. We went to an Italian restaurant here in Columbus called Caffe’ Amici, as we had heard great things and the prices weren’t insanely extravagant. The menu is perfectly sized to offer a wide variety without being overwhelming or repetetive.

Uptown Chili Thai

Joe and I have lived in Columbus for almost 2 years now and we’ve noticed that we get into a rut with restaurants. There are so many restaurants here but we almost always end up visiting the same places. I suppose it has something to do with comfort zones and, in part, laziness. We have recently been trying to branch out for lunches on our out-of-house excursions, and happened across this restaurant called Uptown Chili Thai, which was just one street over from he main shopping strip in the Uptown area. I’d heard about it before but never thought much about trying it because it wasn’t ever in our direct line of sight when we were in the area.
