life is but a dreem

today has been so hot...i've been a perpetual shade of red and pink! it's definitely been the kind of day to swoop up your guy from school and go find somewhere special to hide out in the shade. one of the luckiest things about this area are the old highways around town and all of the little time capsule places to eat. they have the best old buildings and signs!
 
today max and i traveled down dixie with our windows down and the radio on and pretended like we had a sassy convertible...we hung out in the shade under the awning at the dixie dairy dreem and i listened to max spin woeful breakup tales over apricot ice cream and a hot dog. 

i'm not sure mondays get any better than that...

here's hoping everyone had a wonderful weekend!
xoxo

  8. I've said it before, and I'll say it again - I cannot believe this magical world you share with us exists in Ohio! You make me want to pack up and move to this place that looks like it's kept the best things from the past.

  23. This is so funny... The Dixie Dairy "Dreem" is a couple blocks away from where I grew up. I always thought it was such a dive, but you made it look so cute! Haha! Their sunday's are the best! And my husband loves their peanut butter milkshakes.
