Another bow

Celebrated Casey’s birthday over a meal with close friends, enjoying the evening so much I failed to snap a photo. Which is a pity, because the lighting at Ché was really flattering. Alas! To living in the moment.

So many things

Dinner with friends, including baby’s first nacho. Celebrating a coworkers birthday for a cool minute. Seeing our panoramas printed next to the original that lives in the library. (Info) In the same room? The smallest book in the library. Off to another friend’s birthday later in the night. Only after I mistakenly went in to […]

Boomtown and Birds

Not only do we have avocado toast in Cincinnati, we also have biscuits served with cocktails, beards and electric scooters. This Sunday I experienced all of them. (Outside of the avocado toast.) I also learned about the brand Grave Before Shave which is a notion I didn’t realize I subscribed. I was worried about the […]

Joywave at Brew Dog

It was… acceptable calories… but that’s not the target I’m shooting for when having dinner at home. I’ve had much better success in the past, and haven’t documented the enthusiastic thumbs up for the Bacon and […]

New Year’s Eve 2017

Celebrated New Year’s Eve with an early dinner and a cocktail. Home by 9pm! The menu for the evening. Bad front facing camera shot of the crew. Forgot to bang on pans or eat sauerkraut at midnight.

Jumanji?!

Reaction when I heard there was another Jumanji movie: Whaat? Why? But it was a day off and it was cold outside—4 degrees to be precise. The movie turned out to be an absolute blast. I had to catch my breath from laughing more than once. At the end of it all I felt like […]
