Good morning from Northside.

Moving day!

Our movers came this morning to pack up all our stuff. We used Two Men and a Truck. It was pretty crazy just how fast the loaded up all of our stuff…

It looked like so much stuff when it was all in our apartment…

Home sweet home. πŸ™‚ Now the unpacking begins. :/

Our last night downtown.

We stayed up late into the night packing before our movers arrived in the morning…

And we finally got to lay down one last time…

Pause for paws.

Oscar’s last walks around downtown…

And once last walk down to Lytle Park in the evening…

I think he’s really going to miss sniffing around Lytle Park. πŸ™‚

Seen and noted.

The new Corkopolis Wine Market & Bar on Main Street in downtown Cincinnati…

Reds baseball game #11.

We went to our 11th Reds game of the season so far,Β and they were playing the Cubbies. It would be our very last Reds game as downtown residents…

It was a beautiful night for baseball…

Kris Bryant went yard with a solo shot…

And then he hit another one…

This time it was a three-run shot. Jumbo Diaz was just recalled from AAA Louisville today…

And Jake Arrieta hit an opposite field home run…

Joey Votto got in on the act with the first of his two home runs…

Kris Bryant added his third home run of the night…

And Rizzo got in on the act and added a dinger…

We packed it in early so we could go home and pack up some more of our stuff…

The Reds would go on to lose 11-8. Kris Bryant put on a clinic goingΒ 5-5 with 3 home runs and 2Β doubles.Β It was a pretty memorable night! πŸ™‚

#TBT Pause for paws.

As we get ready to leave our little apartment on Sycamore Street after seven years, here are some photos I took after Milan and I had just moved in way back in June of 2009…

What strikes me about looking at these photos is just how empty the apartment looked. And how when I’m in our new house, it looks the same to me. Like a blank canvas just waiting to be filled. We had a lot of adventures in that little apartment. We take with us a lot of great memories of our time here. And we look forward to the new adventures and new memories that await us in our new home.

Jet’s Pizza.

One of things I’ll really miss about not living downtown is getting Jet’s Pizza delivered…

I love that thick crust deliciousness. Taken with Instagram. πŸ™‚

Reds baseball game #10.

Our final Sunday Reds game where we could just walk down the street to GABP…

Today, the Reds were retiring Pete’s Rose’s iconic #14…

And this one belongs to the Reds!

After these messages…

We’ll be right back. We’re packing and moving into our new house. See you next week! πŸ™‚
