Your Hills are like a Memory

Your hills are like a memoryYour hills are like a memory

Every time I drive into Cincinnati my weekend flies by and I end up back at home on Sunday night wandering where all the time goes. The driving is long, added up it's 14 hours of my weekend dedicated to the rolling hills of Pennsylvania turning into flat Ohio. But it's always worth it for some delicious eats, time with my family and friends, and the feeling of having everything at my fingertips. I accomplished a lot this weekend - a vet visit, a car wash, getting myself some superfruit sangria, and seeing my friend Anna for the first time in a long while. Teemo even got to hang out at a bar and get tons of love - he's such a proper young lad.

The Rookwood was delicious and just felt like I could hang around here snapping away photos forever. It's in an old Rookwood pottery place so it has a lot of great Cincinnati history and an amazing view of the city. My friends have learned to deal with me spilling water and taking photos of strangers that look like my husband.

  1. Woohoo! :D My cousins live in Cincinnati, they moved there from CT a long time ago. But sadly it takes us 10-12 hours each way to see them...they visit a couple times a year though

  32. Seeing these photos of Cincinnati reminds me so much of Pittsburgh! I've only driven past it, but have always wanted to stop and explore this part of Ohio.

    This looks like the perfect time - and your outfit is perfect as well to boot! Between the polka dots, turquoise, and the best looking hat ever - I am smitten :)
