At a Dr. Seuss themed event, based off the book Oh, the Places You’ll Go, I was asked “where would you like to go in the future?” Without hesitation, I said “everywhere” and that has become my ultimate goal.
One of my favorite things to look for, wherever I go, is a new coffee shop. To me, they can be the center of a community and the comforting smell of espresso gives me a sense of familiarity. Luckily, I also have amazing coffee shops at my fingertips right here in Cleveland.
Presti’s in Cleveland’s Little Italy has a family oriented feel, which makes strangers and locals alike feel welcomed. One of my favorite memories is warming up after a cold winter night of ice skating with friends. You walk into the warm atmosphere and you’re immediately overwhelmed with the smell of fresh pastries and coffee.
I highly recommend stopping by, if you’re in Cleveland’s Little Italy because it’s a staple for the neighborhood.
I’ve been thinking about what I wanted my blog to be for quite a while. Photography? Cleveland based? Coffee shops I find? I even considered an entire blog dedicated to my cat. Granted, I don’t think that would give me a great portfolio for a future career but I may go back to that idea. I mean, people make money off their pets modeling, right? I digress…
In the end, I knew I needed to give myself a stern lecture, stop my “planning” for the blog and “just do it” (thank you, Shia LeBeouf and Nike). So, here it is, the most organized chaos you’ll find. This blog isn’t about one thing because I’m not about one thing. There are so many parts that piece me together that I couldn’t decide on just one part to focus on.
My hopes for this blog are endless but the effort will be worth it, if I can be of some inspiration or encouragement to just one person. I hope you get half as much enjoyment out of reading this blog as I will making it.
