As soon as I picked her up at the airport, we stopped by one of my favorite Cleveland restaurants: BSpot. Seriously, this place is great. (Apparently Nat thought so, too, since we went back three times while she was here!)
While Nat was here, we explored the city, visiting museums, tourist attractions, and some great local restaurants. We also took the time to fill up on a fall/autumn activities: pumpkin-hunting (both in the pumpkin patch and at stores), pumpkin-carving, hot cider (and rum!), toasting pumpkin seeds, and going for a walk in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Oh AND we went to a pretty cool vineyard for a wine tasting, dinner, and some great scenery.
It really is great to have friends where you can just pick up where you left off and have a great time.
