A night at The Bistro

Last night, Zach and I celebrated six years of being a couple at one of my favorite local restaurants, The Bistro.


Bowling Green only has a handful of more upscale restaurants, and The Bistro can be included in that small group. While it’s not fancy by any means, the ambience is nicer than most restaurants in town. The Bistro is set in an old downtown home with restored hardwoods and brick fireplaces. Very cozy!

I started off by ordering a cocktail called the Kentucky Bramble. The Kentucky Bramble was a concoction of Lexington Bourbon, St. Germain, lemonade and black raspberry liqueur. While it’s probably more of a summer drink, I really enjoyed it.

Sixth dating anniversary and CrossFittin’

Yesterday marked six years since Zach asked me to be his girl. Tonight, we are celebrating by dining at The Bistro. I refuse to forget about our dating anniversary even though we’re hitched now!

And if you’re wondering about the origins of Zach and Caitlin Greenwell, here’s a succinct recollection of Zach “asking me out”:


In other news, I have officially survived eight classes at CrossFit Old School (CFOS). Though these are deemed protocol classes to get newbies like me acclimated to the different activities and learn the proper technique, the classes haven’t been easy. On the first day, I had to tackle a form of pull-up. The second day: box jumps. The sixth day: I attempted to climb a rope (attempted is the key word here.)

Catching up

I’m baaaaaack! After a bit of a blogging hiatus, I’m picking back up where I started. A few exciting things have happened in the last three months, so here’s a bit of a quick, photo-heavy recap to get you caught up.

 The Brumfield wedding

My oldest friend, Dana, married her high school sweetheart, Joe, on Aug. 2. St. Romuald Church in Hardinsburg, Ky., is beautiful in its own right, and Dana transformed its school’s gym into a rustic dream for the reception! Burlap, navy and coral flocked the building, which transformed the gym into a cozy space. Dana and I have the same taste in décor, and I gladly lent two pieces from our reception to hers! She reused our barn wood “Mr.” and “Mrs.” signs as well as our whiskey barrel bar.

Zach and I had a blast at Dana and Joe’s wedding, dancing the night away and chatting with my best friends from high school, who we definitely don’t see often enough! Below are a couple of my photos from the wedding, plus some of the beautiful photos taken by Maggie Coursey Photography, so you have a taste of just how picture-perfect the wedding was!
