We have a couple new bloggers here at The Wild Ramp. (And we are currently seeking more volunteer contributors!) We are excited to welcome Emily J. Click to our blogging team.
I do not currently write a blog. I am a full-time attorney practicing primarily in real estate law, who has a husband (Josh), a daughter (Avery), a dog (Scruggs), and a cat (Lester). My husband is originally from Ironton and we moved here from Columbus about five years ago, so that he could run the family landscaping business. He is a fifth generation landscaper. I love bluegrass music (my husband and I met at the New Beginnings Bluegrass Festival in Chillicothe, Ohio), running, drinking coffee, and exploring new restaurants and little shops. I love shopping local!!! Don’t get me wrong, I order online and shop at big box stores, but I find shopping local provides better service and a better overall experience. When I shop local, I leave happy!
I stumbled on The Wild Ramp this past August after reading my neighbor’s Facebook post about Sip. I was looking at Sip’s menu and saw that they offered flights of wine. In particular, one of the flights included one of my favorites: Picpoul de Pinet. Since I moved from Columbus, I hadn’t really seen that particular wine. I called Sip and asked if I might be able to purchase a bottle. They told me that they couldn’t sell wine by the bottle, but suggested that I visit Bottle & Wedge. So, on Saturday, August 4, 2012, I made my first venture to Heritage Station, along with my daughter, Avery.
A farmer from The Potager was delivering produce that morning and he and his daughter offered Avery a tomato. She ate it right up and insisted on more. When we got in The Wild Ramp, Avery, then 1 1/2, was eating them before I could pay for them. This is what I brought home:
While Avery and I don’t make it up every Saturday, we go as often as we can. It’s nice having that mother/daughter bonding time. We start our Saturday at Heritage Station by enjoying a cup of coffee (me), a cup of milk (Avery), and two cinnamon rolls (one for each of us) at the River & Rail Bakery and end it at The Wild Ramp.
If you haven’t already, come experience all The Wild Ramp has to offer.
