Then Monday morning, bright and early, I was forced to return to my normal life here in Indiana.
I may have teared up when we said "see you later" and I definitely cried big crocodile tears when I crossed the river into Illinois.
It was just the perfect weekend. I can't even begin to talk about how much I needed it. I also have to split the recap into 2 posts, because I have too many photos. Which is odd, because I kept feeling like I wasn't taking enough photos and half of the ones I did take will never grace this lovely blog. Ever.
So let's begin Part 1:
Then he took us to Sump Coffee and we had fancy drinks. This is where I started singing Drake's Fancy and had it stuck in my head ALL WEEKEND LONG. Oh I should mention that Sump Coffee was super awesome and delicious, but it is NOT a Starbucks. Matt and the baristas mentioned multiple times that there were not "fro-fro" drinks there.
I can not recommend this place enough! Seriously I had bacon jam on my hamburger, that was 100% grass fed Missouri beef, with local ingredients. And homemade ketchup. Yea, that happened.
Oh and we all split this..
Homemade brownie with homemade ice cream and homemade caramel sauce. Using local ingredients and nothing artificial.. Yea.. It actually was that amazing. I almost licked the bowl clean.
I'm a photographer, duh.
Saturday night consisted of more going out, but this time we went to Soulard.. ? I don't know. Either way, I rocked my wine pants, black heels, and mustard purse. And I loved it.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
And now this is the end of Part 1. Part 2, aka Sunday in St. Louis, will be on the blog on Thursday.
Now I'm officially starting my Post-St. Louis detox. Wish me luck!
