On Saturday, I asked our sitter to come over to watch Waves for a few hours so Greg and I could go on a little day date. We decided to go hiking at Stringers Ridge which ended up being a lot of fun. It’s an awesome group of hiking and biking trails and it’s seriously right downtown, so it takes maybe 5 minutes tops to get there. The weather was beautiful on Saturday and it was really nice to get a quick and fun hike in.
That picture up there is of downtown Chattanooga. I can’t wait to hike back up there when all the leaves are changing colors because I hear it’s beautiful.
After hiking, we headed over to the southside to explore. First, we stopped at Velo Coffee where I had an iced coffee that was amazing. I didn’t even need to add any milk because it was so smooth with no bitterness. I’d never been to this coffee shop before, but kept hearing great things so I was happy to get to check it out. The two women working were so sweet and made excellent coffee. It was so good we even picked up a pound of beans to use for pour overs at home.
After we finished our coffee, we went to The Local Juicery where Greg got “the triathlete” juice and it was really good. They were so friendly there and gave us some hiking trail recommendations, as well as samples of another juice—the Living Green—which I loved. It had ginger in it which is always great in juice.
Then after that we just walked around for awhile and checked out the neighborhood. It was a really nice start to the weekend. We went up to Knoxville afterwards to spend time with family which kept us busy. I’m still trying to recover from the weekend. I just can’t hang like I used to 😜
Tomorrow I start physical therapy. They were able to figure out that I have tendonitis of the long head of the bicep. I’m really looking forward to meeting with the PT and hopefully start feeling better.
I hope you all are having a great day :]
