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!

Metro Diner Columbus, GA Review

Disclaimer // This Post is sponsored by Metro Diner and Tilson PR. However, as always, all thoughts and views expressed here in this post and related social media posts by me are honest and my own. You can read more about my disclosure policy here. Huge thanks to Metro Diner and Tilson PR for sponsoring our meal for date night!

If the name “Metro Diner” sounds familiar, you may remember it from their feature on Guy Fieri’s hit show Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. The revival of Metro Diner has been open since 1992, with its original location thriving in Jacksonville, Florida. They have since branched out to other states and cities… and now their newest location is open here in Columbus, GA!

Joe and I actually noticed the advertising for Metro Diner at this location opening a month or so ago when we were at the Landings shopping center. We were curious about what it would be, but never gave it much thought. We figured we would check it out once it opened. Lo and behold I received a very exciting email that asked me to attend a dinner service with a guest and spread the word of Metro Diner’s opening in Columbus! We are so grateful to have had our date night sponsored by Metro Diner, and I look forward to sharing our thoughts on the food and dining experience with you!

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.
