my sister came to visit + we had an excellent girls weekend! when she got into town, we went to sam’s bottle shop to have a drink + look around. i made my new favorite homemade pizza [prosciutto, goat cheese, peaches, basil, balsamic] for dinner that night and we got to start catching up.
we both run on saturday mornings, so we got up early to do our requisite distances. i think she enjoyed her first tobacco trail run, and i was really thrilled with how well this week’s long run went. after that, we took riley to eno river to hike + swim. about halfway through our walk the skies opened up and downpoured for a good 20 minutes. we were soaked to the bone! it wasn’t that unpleasant, but it was nice to come home, shower, and warm up.
i wanted to take her to some of my favorite durham spots that she hadn’t experienced before, so happy hour was at alley twenty six and dinner was at mateo. as usual, neither disappointed, and we enjoyed a nice long tapas meal. we were in the mood to stay out, but downtown was strangely quiet. we had a drink on the lawn at bull mccabes, and when things didn’t pick up, we decided to go home for our own “party” of cookies, beer, bridesmaids, and dog cuddling.
on sunday, we had a late brunch at foster’s market, an old chapel hill favorite. since she hadn’t been back to carolina in a while, we walked around coker arboretum + north campus. and of course, took a selfie at the old well.
sister H — thanks for coming to visit + love you!
